Re: Non Intersecting chordsRamanujan? '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 #77 20130405 03:19:44
Re: Non Intersecting chordsThat is correct. Hardy and Littlewood went about proving most of the stuff Ramanujan sent them and brought with him. 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 20130405 03:22:43
Re: Non Intersecting chordsWas he experimental? '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 #79 20130405 03:27:27
Re: Non Intersecting chordsIn many ways yes. Some of his discoveries were achieved through experimental methods. It was the same as Appel and Hankens four color proof. I mean it has the same style. 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. #80 20130405 03:31:08
Re: Non Intersecting chordsWhats four color proof? '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 #81 20130405 03:44:22
Re: Non Intersecting chordsHmmm, believe it or not we are back to magnetic levitation and what we are discussing in the other thread. 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 20130405 03:47:41
Re: Non Intersecting chords
Really? '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 #83 20130405 03:50:53
Re: Non Intersecting chordsYes, but we do not have to talk about such things for many years. 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. #84 20130405 04:04:01
Re: Non Intersecting chordsI am not sure I understood what you mean '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 #85 20130405 04:13:44
Re: Non Intersecting chordsAbout what in particular? 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. #86 20130405 04:17:11
Re: Non Intersecting chordsWhich question are we done with? '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 #87 20130405 04:21:32
Re: Non Intersecting chordsThe question of the intersecting chords. Are you satisfied with it? 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. #88 20130405 04:24:00
Re: Non Intersecting chordsYes '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 #89 20130405 04:29:02
Re: Non Intersecting chordsLet's talk about what we think we know. You have heard of the Meisner effect? 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. #90 20130405 04:33:06
Re: Non Intersecting chordsNo, should I google it? '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 #91 20130405 04:35:31
Re: Non Intersecting chordsI can give a very loose definition or you can google it. It is surprising that you have not seen it demonstrated in physics class. 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. #92 20130405 04:38:40
Re: Non Intersecting chordsThen, describe it, if you please '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 #93 20130405 04:50:05
Re: Non Intersecting chordsWhen substances get very cold the resistance decreases. As you approach absolute zero the resistance drops off to nothing. Current begins to flow in the substance by itself. This is called superconductivity. Follow? 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. #94 20130405 13:34:31
Re: Non Intersecting chordsYes, but such things are not real '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 #95 20130405 18:28:43
Re: Non Intersecting chordsNot true, a while back a new type of type of material was discovered or delivered that would superconduct at much higher temperatures. The race with not much success for a room temperature superconductor has been on ever since. 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. #96 20130405 18:48:44
Re: Non Intersecting chordsHi, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #97 20130405 18:53:56
Re: Non Intersecting chordsHi gAr; 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.
