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)

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...
