What do you mean by "not yet"?

The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.

Hi;

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.

That should teach C to check his problems (he has lots of those)!

I think I figured out who D is supposed to be- me! At least the past me...

Nope, A,C,D are not you or anyone else in the forum. B and E, I have already told you.

I do not ever remember you being as dull as D.

E is the legendary Elaina VW. B, needs no introductions. He is a legend here in Vegas. Towering intellect, amazingly charming and good looking.

And what is B's name?

He is a living legend but prefers the quiet life. Sort of like a modern day John Wayne. He prefers anonymity.

### Re: Is this cool with you?

New Problem:

E says)

The sum

converges slowly. It takes 80,000 terms to get only 8 correct digits past the decimal. B can you speed up the convergence of this series? I know that Mathematica or Maple can get any number of digits for it but I would like to do it myself. What I am looking for is an acceleration of the series convergence.

A says) Hold on E, B isn't the only guy who can do things. I have never been wrong yet have I? Of course not. Just let me say there is no way. Now you can talk B.

B says) Thanks A you are too kind to me. Of course there is a simple way to produce a series that converges faster than that one. All you do is make use of...

C says) There you go again B. Contradicting A. There is a reason A goes first. He is the man! The best! He already said it can not be done.

D says) What is a series?

E says) A comes before B because of the dictionary. I want to hear what B has to say.

A says) I don't.

C says) Agreed!

D says) B, is it true that you are a distant cousin of Torricelli? Not Evangelista, the other one.

B says) Oh boy!?

Can you come up with a faster series that converges to the same value?
