### Re: Is 0 a natural number?

Shortly, in my opinion zero is not a number at all. It has been derived by too means, which disrupts its “natural” existence. First is - the reciprocal of infinity. Or the opposite of absolutely all things. “Absolutely all things” is not well defined, in fact it is very badly defined, so even “nothi...

### Re: other decimal numerical system, excluding zero

I am sorry that I went too far in putting a little misplaced irony in this post. So I understand your reactions. The main thing I had in mind was the numeration system. Thank you very much (Flumble, chridd) for the links! I appreciate this very much. bijective base-10 – that’s all. (It turns out tha...

### Re: other decimal numerical system, excluding zero

Ok, you talk about exponents. By the way, 15027 is exactly 14A27. Yes.

To remove zero from all mathematics is a very pretentious goal.

10^0 = 1 (This is "what goes here" - 0)

I admit it.

These are just the first steps.

### other decimal numerical system, excluding zero

Mathematics of evil We used to that our numerical system (the one generally used today) consists of ten digits. And it is reasonable – it is decimal. But it contains a digit, which is not normal, and disturbs me very much. The zero… OK, digits are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 But do we count – zero...

### Re: about sum of natural numbers (lamer)

Sorry if this is not for here. Delete it. I saw a video in youtube , prooving that the sum of all natural numbers is -1/12. (youtube:numberphile) (...) I am sorry, it is lamer at all. Yeah, this is the point from which I was starting the thread. See, actually, that numberphile video was "lying...

### about sum of natural numbers (lamer)

Sorry if this is not for here. Delete it. I saw a video in youtube , prooving that the sum of all natural numbers is -1/12. (youtube:numberphile) It was quite neat. It is based on the proof that series: S = 1 -1 + 1 -1 +1 -1 ... so on, is = 1/2 The proof was simple (youtube:numberphile) But I have a...
