Ain't it the truth.

Hi;

20130120.gif

Mathematicians sure are a pedantic bunch. There is a forum with bunches of em or is it a herd of em, I never get that right, that actually have a thread devoted to whether they should say "Hi" when answering a post. On the other hand I no longer look good in a beard.

Re: Ain't it the truth.

Physicists have beards?

Re: Ain't it the truth.

I recently saw a physicist without a beard

Re: Ain't it the truth.

That is not an amazing discovery, where did you get the idea that all physicists have beards?

Re: Ain't it the truth.

My favorite physicist, Professor Calculus, gave me that idea.

Re: Ain't it the truth.

I know, i had been kidding.

Where are math proofs rejected for omitting mechanical steps?

Re: Ain't it the truth.

To get that answer, I would suggest A=B, the introduction will be enough.

I've already read the first two chapters but not the introduction.

Re: Ain't it the truth.

Section 1.4 is as close as I can get. There he describes their viewpoints on proofs and what constitutes one.

Re: Ain't it the truth.

The most important part of the proof is missing which the author adds in later.

Both sides obviously satisfy the relations p(n) − p(n − 1) = n^3; p(0) = 0
