Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Not exactly. 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 #77 20130207 22:52:33
Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Hmmmm. Them is fighting words where I come from. 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. #78 20130207 22:54:18
Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?hi Stefy,
That's my whole point. Anyone can have their own mathematics just by defining it. If it is consistent and useful, others may adopt it too. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #79 20130207 22:55:54

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Saws, powered screwdriver, tape measure, sandpaper .... I'm repairing boxes that act as general purpose stage extensions. Roughly 800 (H) x 1200 x 1200. The side panels of some have developed holes. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #81 20130207 22:59:18
Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Sorry, I gave up looking things up. I could not understand it anyway. 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. #82 20130207 23:00:40

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?I already know what it means because I have been wrongfully accused of doing that. If it were not you saying .99999999... ≠ 1, I would not be involved in the debate.

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?I'm not actually saying that 0.999!=1, just that 0.999... should be barred.

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?The boxes are quite big and strong enough to stand on. They are the same height as the school stage so they make the stage bigger. There are 6 boxes plus 4 staircases built to the same sizes. So you can arrange them in a variety of ways for shows to have centre stairs or side stairs or whatever. Once we arranged them out in a straight line from the stage and made a catwalk for a fashion show.

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Yes, I will bar it immediately. 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.

You can bar it from your universe if you like but it's in mine and you cannot take it away! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #88 20130207 23:11:11
Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Hope you get it finished today!

Re: 0^0 equals 1 or undefined?Should do; if I get started. Sometimes I arrive to discover that a teacher wants to use the hall for some frivolous purpose like teaching children. Then I have to come back home and try again another day. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
