Re: Deleting or editing imagesOh. I thought that was the name of the game. 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 20130506 05:29:06
Re: Deleting or editing imagesDoes it matter? I am close but... 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 20130506 05:34:59
Re: Deleting or editing imagesBut? 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 #79 20130506 05:37:31
Re: Deleting or editing imagesThere are two quotes that stand out in my mind right at this time... 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 20130506 05:38:22
Re: Deleting or editing imagesI do not think thinking in other people words is a good thing. 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 #81 20130506 05:42:27

Re: Deleting or editing imagesThe first is inapplicable here. The second one I do norlt understand. 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 #83 20130506 05:48:18
Re: Deleting or editing images
Maybe so but it did come to mind. 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 20130506 05:51:18
Re: Deleting or editing imagesThe second one does not make sense. 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 #85 20130506 05:53:05
Re: Deleting or editing imagesTo walk around assuming that everything is fine just means that like an Ostrich, one has his head buried in the sand. By the same token, imagining I am close to the solution... 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 20130506 06:07:01
Re: Deleting or editing imagesWell truly not understanding the situation is not the same as choosing not to understand. 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 #87 20130506 06:09:28
Re: Deleting or editing imagesSounds like a philosophical statement. You are talking to the wrong m. I like this one:
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.
