Doesn't matter. Just post it already.

Re: Generating Functions

I got it and it is a dilly.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Generating Functions

Update

No one can say. A brilliant guy I know asked whether every combinatoric question could be put into the form of a generating function. He posted that question to the best of the best of the best. He got no reply.

That is not correct. The brilliant guy did receive an answer from GM, an answer he did not understand. It is true that the question was not answered but neither was the counter-question from  GM.
