Re: A few questionsHi; 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. #102 20121212 03:31:59

Re: A few questionsHi Agnishom! Last edited by noelevans (20121212 08:26:34) 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. #107 20121212 14:07:26

Re: A few questionsHi! This is Dan's proof of 4 years ago from your link. 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. #109 20121216 00:01:23

Re: A few questionsShould I post my next question? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
