    I Contradiction vs contraposition

    You are asking about the difference between "Proof by contraposition" and "Proof by contradiction", and here is an example. To prove p \rightarrow q: - In proof by contraposition you start by assuming that \neg q is true and derive the statement \neg p. Here, the path is clear, i.e. you start...

    Summation Convention – Substitution Rule

    Try to get an intuitive feeling for what the Kronecker-Delta \delta_{ij} does. Consider this sum: \sum_{j=1}^{n} c_j = c_1 + c_2 + \dots + c_n Now observe what happens if we multiply with the Kronecker-Delta: \sum_{j=1}^{n} \delta_{ij} c_j = \delta_{i1} c_1 + \delta_{i2}c_2 + \dots +...

    Summation with no argument

    For a sequence (a_n)_{n \in \mathbb{N}} you can form the series \sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n = a_0 + a_1 + a_2 + \dots. If you take the sequence a_n = 1 and plug it into the expression above, then you get the series \sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n = \sum_{n=0}^\infty 1 = 1 + 1 + 1 \dots . Or consider the...
