Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Have you checked if it works?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Hohohohohohoooo, that is a good one. I needed that.

Yes, I did and it seems to work.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Okay. Good. Like you said, you can never trust a CAS.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Can you run a_n/(1/5*(-2)^n+2^(n-1)) for n=1,2,3,... for me and tell me the results?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Hi;

Yes, but what is the LHS and the initial value?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

No, I just need the value of that expression for n=1,2,3,... a_n is the sequence we were just working on.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

The best I can do is divide each term of that sequence by the denominator you are providing in #55

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Ah, sorry. And what about when the denominator is 2^n-(-2)^(n+1)/5.

Hm, so it is good as an asymptotic form.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Yes, it looks like that. You might play with it a little more for a closed form.

I wonder if there is an application of xor in combinatorics.

How did you do with getting a closed form?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

I just reduced the exact form, thinking that it might be easier to work with if we wanted to get anything more about the sequence.
