Re: Is this cool with you?I did not see word "urn" in that page, which post in that? "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." #1852 20130819 01:25:07
Re: Is this cool with you?Around post 2161. It is worded as a dice problem but actually it is related to a bin or urn problem that I had been trying to solve prior to that. 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. #1853 20130819 01:30:45
Re: Is this cool with you?I remember now, had the formula in form of a sum. "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." #1854 20130819 01:33:32
Re: Is this cool with you?I do not think so. He has a gf and that is correct but his series is flawed. The good thing about it is it is more general than anonimnystefy's 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.

Re: Is this cool with you?What's given in the book you were reading? "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." #1856 20130819 01:45:15

Re: Is this cool with you?Looks nice, but what's kmax there? "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." #1858 20130819 01:53:40
Re: Is this cool with you?The labels have been changed to something simpler to read. That sum is supposed take for any distinguishable urns, distribute n balls with a max of k in any one of them. 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.

Re: Is this cool with you?I'll try out the formula. "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." #1860 20130819 02:05:47
Re: Is this cool with you?Save yourself the work. It does not work. 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. #1861 20130819 04:01:02
Re: Is this cool with you?Maybe it does not have a simplified closed form. "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." #1862 20130819 04:02:27
Re: Is this cool with you?That is probably true but if they would have published the correct sum then at least we would not need the sequence anymore! 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.

Re: Is this cool with you?Yes! "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." #1864 20130819 04:12:16
Re: Is this cool with you?That is what I was hoping to do but no luck. I searched for errata for the book but could not find any. 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.

Re: Is this cool with you?Sometimes working it out ourselves gives results faster than searching, we'll never know! "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." #1866 20130819 04:24:23
Re: Is this cool with you?I was not looking for that solution but as I was looking through this book, which is full of wonderful answers, I saw it. What a downer! 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.

Re: Is this cool with you?Which book is that?

Re: Is this cool with you?Oh, that's big size for a book. "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." #1870 20130819 04:56:21

Re: Is this cool with you?That's okay, I was talking about the size compared to the number of pages, takes more than average. But the book looks good, lots of new formulas! "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!

Re: Is this cool with you?Not bad. It should be a good gift to anonimnystefy. See you later. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
