Hi there!

Hello, this is my first post.

I found this place whilst searching for forums for math lovers . I read the rules in the intro to registration and figured I'd like it here.

I chose the name ln(x) because e is my favorite number and the logarithm is one of my favorite functions (It resembles a breaching whale, and whales are my favorite animal).

I hope to meet friends here, to teach others mathematics and learn some new mathematics as well.~

Hi ln(x);

Welcome to the forum!

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.

Re: Hi there!

hi ln{x}

Welcome to the forum.

You could have called yourself 'e' then, and saved some typing.

The forum is tranferring to a new server and there's a spot of teething trouble with mathemathical formatting using Latex.

So I cannot show you my favorite equation.

Hopefully soon.

EDIT: post 8

Hi Bob

You can always make a picture on codecogs and link to it:

$\int_{t=1}^{x}\frac{1}{t}\ dt$

Re: Hi there!

hi Stefy

Assume I've got my Latex in codecogs and it is displaying correctly.

Hi Bob

Right-click on the image, click "copy image URL" and paste it between img tags.

Re: Hi there!

??

No copy image url option.

copy doesn't copy anything.

I've pasted the properties address here but it doesn't show the image.

EDIT:  It works with no spaces.

$e^{i\pi}+1=0$

Re: Hi there!

Hi

Try removing the spaces...

Thanks for the help.  That has worked.  Look back 1 post.
