Re: The biggest number?
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. #52 20120517 22:10:56
Re: The biggest number?Sorry,the LaTeX didn't show,so I didn't see your response earlier. It is quite a large number comparing to 1. It is I think around (((3!)!)!)! times greater than 1. 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 #53 20120628 12:23:41
Re: The biggest number?The biggest number is outside of our awareness. I would say it's the "awareness barrier" itself, or at least in the middle of it (if it could be measured). #54 20120628 16:29:37

Re: The biggest number?Have you heard of transfinite numbers or mathematics? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: The biggest number?Of course. But we cannot calculate those numbers in a billion of year let alone half a year or a year.

Re: The biggest number?I do not want to spoil your thread with cross talk but they can be computed. See the lecture by Doron Zeilberger. There is a largest number! 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.

Re: The biggest number?Hi;
Correct! I will moderate to keep it on track from here. 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.

Re: The biggest number?So let's see if we can post a bigger one; XXXX Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #62 20121126 07:22:18
