Breaking the record of Graham's numberLet n=6>6>6>6>6 Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20061005 01:56:28
Re: Breaking the record of Graham's numberCool. The modern age just keeps coming up with new things. #3 20061005 02:07:47
Re: Breaking the record of Graham's numberPrime numbers are neverending. It is very very difficult to prove that n1+1 is a composite number, well impossible, because of this property i mentioned. However, Graham's Number is a shame to mathematics and to Ramsay theory. The proof isn't sound at all, as said by some other mathematicians. Hence, I was interested in giving a more difficult aspect to prove or disprove by counterproof. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20061005 02:12:47
Re: Breaking the record of Graham's number
I don't understand your 6>6>6>6 notation. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #5 20061005 14:43:25

Re: Breaking the record of Graham's number
By hypothetic, do you mean one that remains to be unproven? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #7 20061005 18:37:59
Re: Breaking the record of Graham's numberYes, hypothetic is because, it is next to impossible to prove. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #8 20070522 03:53:56
Re: Breaking the record of Graham's numberI'm pretty sure the reason why people have disclaimed Graham's number is because it is the upper bound to a (rather hairy) problem in Ramsey Theory, the lower bound having been identified as 6 by the same people that "discovered" the upper bound.

Re: Breaking the record of Graham's number
In fact, The chainedarrow notation here is pretty huge, although I'm not sure I really got the concept of the notation in full. "Knowledge is directly proportional to the amount of equipment ruined." "This woman painted a picture of me; she was clearly a psychopath"
