Mathematicswhether the statement is true or false " ZERO IS THE SMALLEST EVEN WHOLE NUMBER" #2 20130831 02:18:45
Re: MathematicsThat statement is false. 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 #3 20130831 02:59:11
Re: MathematicsHi; 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. #4 20130902 20:57:06

Re: MathematicsOnce again, we stumble on the issue of a definition. There is no one reliable dictionary of mathematical terms. That's why I looked on MIF. Obviously, I am happy to take that as the best source of information. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
