QuoteOriginally posted by: exCBOEPlease, no offense, but you are wasting your time trying to come up with a clever simple proof. This is a very hard, deep problem, studied by the best mathematicians of the twentieth century.You are an idiot.1) You call it a "deep" problem. What does that mean? It means nothing. It is just an indication you have no idea what you are talking about.2) You say it was studied by the best mathematicians. You have no evidence of the actual time spent on it by each mathematician, nor any way to measure the relative qualifications of those who spent time. All you know is that some mathematicians studied it, but whatever they tried didn't work.3) I never tried to come up with a "simple proof." But nevertheless to me it is obvious the information properties of the series. As to how you would prove it using number theory, you probably cannot.4) I also think your suggestion that a "clever" proof is wrong, implying that hard work is necessary, is idiotic. People have put in hard work and failed. Obviously they are digging in the wrong spot. Instead of spending their lives digging, they should step back and look for a different place to dig, a clever place.5) How much time have I spent on it? If anybody wasted his time, it was these idiot mathematicians.
