Could I get a demonstration of why they are the same? I have the two equations which the two theorems reduce to in two dimensions, and it's pretty tantalizing because they are virtually the same, but differ in a nice symmetrical way. But I can't for the life of me show that they are the same (I take that to mean that they state the same fact). Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
