Mathematical Poem 1 by TheBeautyofViolence Mathematical Poem 1 by TheBeautyofViolence
=)
I'm really happy with the way this turned out.

I'm considering doing a whole series of poems like this, depending on public response to this one.

Next would be a "Guide to mathematical poetry" which would give examples of mathematical analogues to poetic techniques

The amazing thing is you could possibly make a series of mathematical operations like Planckation (the 10^-35 operation), Yoctation (the 10^-24 operation), Zeptation (the 10^-21 operation), Autation (the 10^-18 operation), Femptation (the 10^-15 operation), Pication (the -1,000,000,000,000 operation), Nanation (the -1,000,000,000 operation), Micration (the -1,000,000 operation), Millation (the -1,000 operation), Centation (the -100 operation), Negative Decation (the -10 operation), Noventation (the -9 operation), Negative Octation (the -8 operation), Septation (the -7 operation), Sexation (the -6 operation), Quintation (the -5 operation), Quadation or Negative Tetration (the -4 operation), Negative Exponentiation (the -3 operation), Division (the -2 operation), Substraction (the -1 operation), Zeration (the 0 operation), Addition (the 1 operation), Multiplication (the 2 operation), Exponentiation (the 3 operation), Tetration (This is the 4 operation, Tetration is repeated Exponentiation and the next level higher than that, while Exponentiation would simply be 10^60, Tetration would be for example 10 Tetrated to 7 being 10^10^10^10^10^10^10, 1,000,000 Tetrated to 5 being 1,000,000^1,000,000^1,000,000^1,000,000^1,000,000 or 10,000 Tetrated to 11 being 10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000^10,000, something like this.), Pentation (The next level after Tetration and that much higher, the 5 operation), Hexation (the 6 operation), Heptation (the 7 operation), Octation (the 8 operation), Nonation (the 9 operation), Decation (the 10 operation), Hectation (Even though this is a hundreth, each new number you add is still the next operation up and is the same technical distance between Exponentiation and Tetration so the 101st operation is still the next up from the 100th operation, Hectation is the 100 operation.), Kilation (the 1,000 operation), Megation (the 1,000,000 operation), Gigation (the 1,000,000,000 operation), Terration (the 1,000,000,000,000 operation), Petation (the 10^15 operation), Exation (the 10^18 operation), Zettation (the 10^21 operation), Yattation (the 10^24 operation) even Xonation (the 10^27 operation). Because there are positive and negative operations even a zero point you could make almost an x axis for the oeprations and make coordinates. Thank you for this.

Umm, I'm not really sure what prompted this? I don't really have any of these higher-order operations referred to in this poem.

But yes, as a Maths geek I find this sort of thing quite interesting. I always liked to think of Addition/Subtraction as the first level of operations, Multiplication/Division as the next and then Exponentiation as the third, then I looked into the next level and learned of Tetration. But I think going much further than this has little practical value, in truth the numbers are so big (or small) when you go higher than Tetration that we're unlikely to encounter them in any field of Maths or Science.

I think I'm attaching a copy of this (with credit to you) to my Calc 2 final. In hopes my teacher will be put in a good mood while grading said final because this is just amazing.

I was also confused about the integral from -death to death of I when I was odd, but I understand now that you explained it above.

wouldn't the integral from -death to death of I would give something like 2 death I ?

That's only if "I" was a constant in 't'.
But if you think of I as a function in t, then you have to find it's primitive and so on.

e.g. int(sin(t)) from -a->a = [-cos(t)] sub(-a)->sup(a)
=> (-cos(a)--(cos(a))=-cos(-a)+cos(a)=-cos(a)+cos(a)=0 (because cos is even)

So, that's an example of why an odd function gives a 0 integral over a symmetric interval.

But, it's easy to see through a diagram, too. Because if it's odd, then for every positive section of the curve, there's a negative section of the same area on the other side, and vice-versa. So all the areas cancel out and give 0.

So all of this is due to the fact that "I am odd" =P.

A more rigourous mathematician might've proved my 'oddness' first, but I think it's evident from the fact that I wrote a poem using Calculus!!! xP

briliant! simply briliant!
it actually made me like poetry and literature a little bit more!

I'm enough of a geek to understan it aswell (so proud haha).

I hope to see more poems like this one!
this one is definitely a hit! my fave for the moment!

great work! :heart:
