Re: Expectation

What would that be?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: Expectation

Last Saturday was the Serbian Republic competition in mathematics. I got a third place award and I am going to the Serbian Mathematical Olympiad. smile

Re: Expectation

I think combinatorics. And then number theory.

Re: Expectation

I don't like it much. I just get ideas faster than in other 3 topics that are included in the competition.

Re: Expectation

Actually, sorry. I get ideas slower in the 2 other topics, analysis and geometry.

In combinatorics I get ideas the fastest.
