Earlier today, I proved 1=0!
Think about it... it kind of tickles the brain in a weird way
Are you gonna post how you did it? I'd like to see.
The irony is about waist-high in this thread.
Yes, but can you prove that 2 + 2 [itex] \neq [/itex] 4!
I can't see it.
I used a well-known, yet under-appreciated, definition.
mattmns, I'm working on it, but it may take a while.
But I have shown 2=2!
I meant, are you gonna post the details of the proof.
1=0! by definition.
2=2! by definition too.
Like Mickey said, are you saying 'zero factorial' or are you screaming 'ZERO' at the top of your lungs?
The Bohr-Mollerup Theorem could be used to show that the gamma function is the unique analytic continuation of the factorial to the complex plane less the non-positive integers that is log-convex and assumes real values for real arguements... and show that [tex]\Gamma (1) = 0! =1[/tex], but that might be kinda lame...
We have a winner! (<--- that's an exclamation mark, not a factorial).
It had been possible that an inconsistency in mathematics was discovered. How disappointing.
Yay. Bring on the cute math babes.
