Re: √1+(√2+(√3+(√4+... = ? Harder than it seems

Depends on how you interpret a result like that.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

I do not understand what you have against him, exactly. Could you explain?

Nothing against either Borwein, they are brilliant guys.

The i guy used it as an excuse for not doing numerical work.

Actually, the answer is 3
Look at this poster before 2013 Asian Football Championship, the score will be 3:0

Hi;

Yes, that is a different problem.
