Cauchy's Inequalities finally clicked!

I mean, yeah, so it's a rather simple thing, really, when you understand Cauchy's Integral Formula for Derivatives, but I didn't really understand that either. Now I at least grasp it enough to be able to see the derivation for the Inequalities!

And, of course, I'm slapping my forhead for not seeing it before. It's friggin' plain as day! Oh well, I've never been accused of being the most cluefull person around. :)

shop as usual, and avoid panic buying

In other news, got iTunes installed, I don't like the way it runs two services in the background that are rather resource intensive. grr.. The system plays better now that I've gotten rid of the Explorer shell and I'm running a far lighter one (iShell, for those of you who are interested). So at least things can run rather smoothly while I re-download some of the more enjoyable tunez (can't get all of 'em as this poor laptop's HDD is *FAR* smaller than the iBook's).

And when the bullshit happy choir
Greets another grim day
When the angels swim to our aid
Well, here comes another cliche

. . . of course SNOG was among the first tunez downloaded. :)

Isn't the Cauchy Inequality wonderful? I'm the same way--I swear I spent half of my Mathematical Physics class trying to figure out just how that damn thing worked and why it worked, just blindly using it whenever it seemed applicable. But at some point (probably shortly before the exam) everything clicked and I do remember having that Eureka sensation, too. It made me want to take a Complex Analysis course afterward, but by then I was too late in the degree to do it. Sadly, it's all faded since then and I'd have to learn it from scratch to appreciate it, but still! Yeah, I like Cauchy. :)

Re: Yay!

heh.. Yeah, Cauchy gets mad props from me. It seems like just about every important theorem we've had to study so far was Cauchy's something or another. I swear, that man practically BUILT Complex Analysis on his own!

As for the application of the Inequality, I'm still somewhat hazy on when it would ever be needed. But I can prove it and I understand it, and that's good enough for now! :)
