Re: Induction ProofsHi! Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #4 20121108 19:21:42

Re: Induction ProofsThe forum also has built in tags which allows use of subscripts and superscripts withouth knowledge of latex: For example a_{n}. 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 #6 20121109 03:47:16
Re: Induction ProofsHi noelevans; 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. #8 20121109 07:25:50
Re: Induction ProofsPretty math?

Re: Induction ProofsLaTex input (not so pretty) vs LaTex output = Pretty math Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make.
