1 - 1/2 + 1/3 - 1/4 + ... = log 2

1 - 1/2 - 1/4 + 1/3 - 1/6 - 1/8 + ... = (log 2)/2

I find that I tend to act "like a physicist" in my more experimental work. Often I'm dealing with the coefficients of some complicated power series (usually a generating function) which I can

*compute*(with computer assistance) and don't understand too well. Most of the time the things that "look true" are. This work is, in some ways, experimental, which is why it's tempting to act like a physicist.

Oh, yeah, I graduated today.
