Happy 2013Happy New Year in advance to everyone at MIF! Last edited by Agnishom (20121228 19:40:13) 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: Happy 2013few months? Why not weeks? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013Is that a quotation from a novel? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013No, I just made it up. If it also occurs in a novel, it is a coincidence. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20121229 00:05:30
Re: Happy 2013OK I shall do a google 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013Hi Agnishom; 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. #9 20130101 17:50:46
Re: Happy 2013Interesting fact...2013 is the first year since 1987 to have 4 different numbers! Let's hope this year brings positive changes too! 'And fun?

Re: Happy 2013^^^Why this sort of a signature? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013What do you mean by a good sign ? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #14 20130102 00:33:33
Re: Happy 2013A good omen. An indication at least in some sense that it will be good. 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. #15 20130102 01:03:30
Re: Happy 2013How do you recognise one? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #16 20130102 01:08:13
Re: Happy 2013I do not know. Except that over here it gets worse every year. 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. #17 20130102 01:22:30
Re: Happy 2013
Do you mean the forum? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013Hi; 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. #19 20130103 00:34:37
Re: Happy 2013Why? What had happened at that time? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Happy 2013Maybe 2013 is the smallest uninteresting number? Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms. Composites are two or more primes held together by multiplication. In biology, we use math like we know what we are talking about. Sad isn't it. #21 20130103 01:44:36
Re: Happy 2013Well, that is an interesting property of the number 2013! 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 #22 20130103 02:10:54
Re: Happy 2013Hehe. Exactly. Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms. Composites are two or more primes held together by multiplication. In biology, we use math like we know what we are talking about. Sad isn't it. #23 20130103 02:24:22
Re: Happy 2013It only just started, let's give it a chance. 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: Happy 2013Anyone know how John Chew came up with this statement: Last edited by pellerinb (20130103 02:29:29) Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms.
