Re: Is this cool with you?New problem: 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. #1777 20130612 22:46:06
Re: Is this cool with you?Wait, so, do they give 50 dollars each time or ...? 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 #1778 20130612 22:56:43#1779 20130612 22:59:18

Re: Is this cool with you?He wins half of it or loses half of it. The arithmetic was done after each toss using a TI  92. at the end they decided on the rounding.
Yes! That was kind of 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. #1783 20130613 00:27:06
