yes, but .99999999999... is a 'convention' only.Originally posted by Eclectic
I'm sorry, but last time I checked, I though 9/9 = 1
Kinda like 4/4 = 1, 3/3 = 1
say... that makes a lot of sense. because, some day, someone might want to pull stuff out of a black hole, so they have to have an id for each one so they know where to go.Originally posted by ADT
but even more f******* is Picard's Theorem:
"in each neighborhood (area surounding a critical point) of an essential singular point (a position at which a contour becomes infinite in an irriversable fashion), a function assumes every finite value, with one possible exception, an infinite number of times"
so, lets say our contour is a gravitational field, our essential singular point is some kind of black hole or some other fuck'd up shit, then the gravitational intensity of each around that position will assume every known value in existance except for ONE.. (ooohhh).. even more interesting is the fact that that value will be unique to the design of the singularity..
its like identification numbers for black holes
hardly - it's also better known as i in the mathie circles and j in engineering circles (specifically electrical). it's extensively used in electromagnetics and controls to accurately model systems. without them there wouldn't be a hell of a lot of technology as we know it today.Originally posted by ADT
(i = squareroot of -1 a number which exists only in theory in case you dont know)
