Re: Limits!

How about a(0)=2, a(1)=-36, a(2)=35?


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.

Uhhhh, why not just run the recurrence?

Because the zero may be in the googolth place. Maybe it is in the bajilionth place. Maybe it's in the googolplexth place. Or in Graham's numberth place.

Re: Limits!

Hmmm. There is no way to tell where that zero or any other number will be. Maybe just in special cases.
