    it would be better as sum(2..inf) of 1 / (heart ^ k), because then the sum of all love would be unity.  

    • Oskar says:

      Of course, if heart>1, then that sum diverges, so there’s infinite love in the world. 

      (on the other hand, if heart<1, then it's 1/(1-heart))

    Next stop: Math Girls Gone Wild?

  3. The fanfic practically writes itself!

    Yalp! Our poor little server… We’re currently upgrading our slice, which will hopefully get the server back up off its knees. Apologies for our lameness. And thank you, Sohagan for the submission!

    Looks like we’re back up. Apologies for the delay.
    Loving the equation suggestions… We’re looking for new equations to use for the rest of the series. =)

    I love that the book appears to be typeset in math-textbook style, and maybe even with a Computer Modern font?  (I’m no expert but a couple spot-checks look like a match.)

    Now if only there were snarky asides in the margins like “Concrete Mathematics”…

    Thanks to @dgakane:twitter for tweeting me about it! Looking forward to the book.

    I’ve read the first volume of the manga, awesome! Imagine that Martin Gardner was reincarnated as a cute tsundere manga girl. That’s what it’s like.

    Isn’t rule 1 of marketing “never compare your product to something as awful as glee“?

      but… but… it’s Glee with *math*! ;-)

      I dunno, I saw an episode of Glee once.  It was bland, but not really “bad,” I thought.  Plus they were doing Tom Jones and Cole Porter songs; if it gives the kiddies an entry point into the American songbook pre-1996, I’d say it’s doing a good thing.
