Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?That is the point! It is one, I agree! But it is also .9999999999... Do it term by term, it is .9 + .09 + .009 + .0009 + .00009 + .000009 + ... + obviously .99999999999... and you used the geometric sum to say it equals 1. 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. #52 20130207 21:38:27
Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?There is no reason that that sum should be equal 0.999...

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?
Please look at the preceding post again. That sum produces an endless bunch of nines! You said it was one because you used this formula sort of shows that if we do not agree with .999999999... = 1, we have to give that up. I do not want to give it up. It works!

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?No, no. I disagree that that sum is equal to 0.999...

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?No, of course not. I am just saying that the product of 3 and nonterminating 3's is 1, and not 0.999...
