The "new" number nullity. A great discovery? Hey guys, I just ran across this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/berkshire/conte..._feature.shtml [Broken] It's being hailed as a great discovery in some circles but I fail to see the newness of the concept of a number or symbol representing nothing (we've had that ever since I've been into higher math). On the other hand I also fail to se the use of equating 0^0 with 0/0. Seems like circular reasoning to me and not solving anything. What do you guys think?
