A stumper?Hi; This produces an extremely large polynomial in 4 variables. The coefficient of is the answer. We get it with the extremely powerful command: Coefficient[ans, w^5 x^5 y^5 z^5] the answer is 134631576. 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. #2 20131006 23:19:58
Re: A stumper?How does it work? 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 20131006 23:23:32
Re: A stumper?It looks like it is the matrix version of a gf. How it works, I never did figure out, but I can use it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: A stumper?M, is bloated to the extreme. There is command for everything. Whenever I do not find a command that does exactly what I want I always think I did not look in the right place!

Re: A stumper?Ah, 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."
