Re: √1+(√2+(√3+(√4+... = ? Harder than it seemsDepends on how you interpret a result like 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. #27 20131123 12:41:50
Re: √1+(√2+(√3+(√4+... = ? Harder than it seemsI do not understand what you have against him, exactly. Could you explain? 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 #28 20131123 12:48:06
Re: √1+(√2+(√3+(√4+... = ? Harder than it seemsAgainst whom? The i guy or Borwein? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: √1+(√2+(√3+(√4+... = ? Harder than it seemsNothing against either Borwein, they are brilliant guys. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
