So /sci/, what is your favorite number? My favorite number is 581442729886633902054768000. If you know what's special about it without looking it up, then you're cool.

1, 2, or 42
42 mainly because that was the channel number for Discovery back when they were good and I used to watch everything they put out as a kid. 1 and 2 because typically whenever I get those prominently in a solution it's either a massive relief or the question gets really intense.
>>
>>7773784

That's right, this number has no meaning.
>>
>>7774116
Oh... good. I was a little worried that you picked the number 42 because it's a reference to that stupid book that features the number at one point. But you've provided a tolerable reason to pick 42 as one of your favorite numbers, so good job.

Most masculine numbers are 4, 8, multiples of 8 and numbers that end in 4 or 8.

24 is hypermasculine. 128 is hypermasculine.
>>
>>7774205
>>7777701
Ok I'm going to explain why 2 is the most amazing number:

2 is the minimal arity of a first-order relation such that a theory over a language with that relation (e.g. set theory) is capable of encoding all of mathematics.
>>
>>7781244
8 looks like a sideways pair of balls, but what's so masculine about 4?
>>
>>7781058
It doesn't, but ZF+GCH can prove that statement, while ordinary ZFC can't. Plus GCH implies AC, so you don't even have to increase the number of axioms in your system.
>>
>>7773152
0 because ({0},•) and ({0},+) are Abelian groups

>inb4 muh trivial group
Fuck off, faggot.
>>
>>7781547
But that's really only one group written two different ways, and it's no different than ({1},•). Clearly 1 and 0 are equally good.
>>
>>7781551
True, but they're pretty autistically considered different because they aren't extended the same way. With the group under addition, you can extend the set from {0} to the integers and have a group with the same identity element, but you can't with multiplication.
>>

88005553535
>>
Mine is -1/12.
>>
>>7773152
0 is the best number

usually a zero showing up in your work means things get a lot simpler to work with

group together something to sum to zero? it disappears
product is zero? whole term disappears
something equals zero? you're free to start dividing and multiplying by shit without it getting any more complicated

it's a nice number
>>
>>7781228
Your face is retarded.
>>
>>7781670
This is a really nice thing about zero, once you get a zero in there it all gets a lot easier.
Thanks anon, you've brightened my night with thoughts about zero
>>
>>7781546
>GCH implies AC
No it doesn't. If you're familiar with the proof of the independence of AC, you can construct a model that satisfies GCH but not AC.
>>
>>7773152
1 cuz you can't have any other numbers without one.
>>
>>7782195
Not sure where you're getting that, but it's not true. CH is independent of AC, but GCH implies both of those. Here's a paper that talks about it if you're interested: http://www.jstor.org/stable/2695444?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
>>
>>7774260
(You)
>>
>>7782224
Oh, odd. I didn't expect that. I guess the cohen forcing over a model of GHC that adds countably many reals changes some powerset's cardinality after all. Some singular cardinal of cofinality [math]\omega[/math].

Hardy once was going to see Ramanujam when he was ill at Putney. He had ridden in taxi cab number 14 and remarked that the number seemed to him rather a dull one, and that he hoped it was not an unfavorable omen. "No," Ramanujam replied, "it is a very interesting number; it is the smallest number expressible as a product of 2 and 7 in two different ways."
>>
>>7782224
Wait, actually that's easy to see.

In fact, if the continuum function is from ORD to ORD, doesn't that imply AC by some kind of easy induction on well-ordering the [math]V_\alpha[/math]'s?
