Re: Generating FunctionsHmmmm. So I guess the rocket will only get 1 / 5 of the way to the moon? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #302 20120505 05:23:39
Re: Generating FunctionsGood enough. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #303 20120505 05:34:18
Re: Generating FunctionsIf that is all you can get. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #304 20121103 08:02:52
Re: Generating FunctionsWith a better machine this Maxima code: Code:gf1(x):=ratexpand(ratsimp((gf(x))^1000)); sum(prime(i)*coeff(gf1(x),x^i),i,1,6000); would get the needed answer.

Re: Generating FunctionsHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #306 20121103 08:57:21
Re: Generating FunctionsIt doesn't have enough memory to evaluate the sum...

Re: Generating FunctionsDo you have any other ideas that might help? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #308 20121103 09:05:52
Re: Generating FunctionsNot really... Have you solved it?

Re: Generating FunctionsI was thinking about a method you might try. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #310 20121103 09:13:07
Re: Generating FunctionsWhich one?

Re: Generating FunctionsYou know that the lowest power in the expansion is 1000. The lowest prime in the expansion is 1009. What is the highest exponent in the expansion? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Generating Functions6000. 5987 is the largest prime below 6000.

Re: Generating FunctionsDoes maxima have a Coefficients command? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #314 20121103 09:36:01
Re: Generating FunctionsDidn't you see it get used in the code above. It's the coeff() function.

Re: Generating FunctionsIt is a different command in geogebra! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Generating FunctionsGeogebra has maxima inside it! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Generating FunctionsI know that. But, why did you mention a function for coefficients?

Re: Generating FunctionsIt is one of the ways you can get an answer. In geogebra it is Coefficients[poly,variable], notice I cannot pick out anyone I want without further processing.

Re: Generating FunctionsBut it would have to sum all coefficients of primenumbered powers if x, which is a lot of computing.

Re: Generating FunctionsYes, it is a tough problem. Ever heard of Doc Thorne? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Generating FunctionsThat is why I posed this problem. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
