Re: Challenging math... (Sulpicius)

Go to any good search engine, AltaVista, Lycos, etc. and put in the following as search criterion.

"Banach Tarski"
"Axiom of Choice"
"Poincare Group"
"Lorentz Invariant"

Or ...
E=mc^2 is actually not Einstein's formula. It is a simplification created in an attempt to educate the general public. The actual formula Einstein wrote was E^2 - (pc)^2 = m^2*C^4. Explore the meaning and derivation of the real formula and understand quite a bit more about the universe in which we live.

Or ... explore the following:
Pi is not a fundamental number. It is generated by a harmonic series. The configuration of space-time in which circles and spheres exist is also generated by the same basic underlying harmonic series and thus incorporates Pi.

Or ... derive a proof of the following true statement:
(e raised to the power (pi * i) + 1 = 0
Yes ... it really is ... exactly 0.

If you need more let me know. Also considering locating the following at a local college or university:

Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications
Cambridge University Press. There are at least 24 volumes in the series.

Finally ... keep answer the following question:
Does a polar bear,
under an appropriate coordinate transformation
become a rectangular bear?
