    Anything actually physically infinite within the universe?

    No, I'm willing to bet those things are by definition to make the mathematics work, the electron doesn't have physically infinite charge. Period.

    Anything actually physically infinite within the universe?

    Hi guys, I'm a mathematician from Miami Florida working in paraquaternionic and symplectic differential geometry, but I come from a very extensive physics background, pretty much well-versed in all modern physics. But my favorite of all is probably the philosophy of mathematics and science as...

    Pfaffian and determinants of skew symmetric matrices

    Can anyone explain or point me to a good resource to understand these operators? I'm trying to the understand determinants for skew symmetric matrices, more specifically the Moore determinant and it's polarization of mixed determinants. Can hone shed some light? I'm confused as to how the...

    Multiplicity free fibers in maps between vector bundles

    For a map between vector bundles (which commute with a certain Lie groups like Sl2R or GL2R), what does it mean exactly for a fiber to be multiplicity free? Eplanations would be good, but examples would be even better. Thanks in advance, Gauss bless you! CM

    The Grassmanian manifold's topology

    Thanks a lot guys, I especially appreciate the different responses/viewpoints. I'm going to give them all a try and see which fits my mental conception of the manifold best. Thanks again! CM

    The Grassmanian manifold's topology

    Let n <= m and G:=Gr(n,m) be the (real) Grassmanian manifold. I understand the topology of the simplest case, that of projective space, and am wondering if there is a way to interpret the topology of the G to similar to projective space, with the according generalizations needed. If V^n is an...

    Prime numbers hypothesis

    Show that n^2-n-1>n for n>2 and apply Bertrand's postulate that there is a prime in [n,2n] for all n>2.

    Zeta(3) and Euler's formula

    What about the negative one?

    Zeta(3) and Euler's formula

    Should \prod_\mathbb{P} \left( \sum_{\mathbb{Z} \ge 0} p^{-s n} \right) ^{-1} have that ^(-1) after it? Or am I missing something..? Are you rewriting 1/(1-p^-s) using geometric series? Anyways, thanks that was very helpful, I'm looking into the proofs of the product formula via this route.

    Zeta(3) and Euler's formula

    I need help understanding this equality: \prod_{p-prime} \frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{p^3}}= \sum_{k=1}^\infty \frac{(-1)^{\sum_p ord_p(k)}}{k^3} Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

    Zeta(3) and Euler's formula

    The step going from the second to last line, to the last line.

    Zeta(3) and Euler's formula

    Hi everyone. I'm trying to understand the step where they wrote 1/2 ∏1/(1+p^-3) =1/2 Ʃ(-1)^ord(k)/k^3 How can I see this? I know the Euler product formula, but it has a negative sign before the p^-3, where here we have a + sign. Thanks for the help.

    Product and intersection of ideals of polynomial ring

    That it is a linear combination of z and (x-t), g=zg'+(x-t)g" for g',g" in k[x,y,z,t]. The question is what we do from there. We know that g(0,0,z,t)=0 (because g in I) hence g(0,0,z,t)=zg'(0,0,z,t)-tg"(0,0,z,t)=0. But from here can we conclude that g',g" are in I? I don't see how to do it..

    Product and intersection of ideals of polynomial ring

    I have already proved that (and thought of that), but the problem is that these are ideals of a polynomial ring, so that if I+J=k[x] then either I or J IS k[x], otherwise you could not generate the scalars in the field.. (since k-field, it has no nontrivial ideals) So this approach won't work...
