Shocking Mathematical Formula!

6 posts in this topic

As I was researching maths, I came across an amazing mathematical formula that defies common sense:

1+2+3+4+...=-1/12 

Does anyone have any metaphysical explanations for this formula. You certainly can't rationalise this! There's no way you could picture this in your head!

It's because they make the "mistake" to take a divergent series and assume that it's value is 1/2. Total nonsense. Skipped the video when I saw this.

I'd have to see the proof. But higher level mathematics is pretty sweet! Calculus, probability, it's interesting stuff.

LOL, just finished watching the video for proof.

It's an accepted fact by mathematicians and physicists and is taught in universities. I think we have to assume the proof is correct.

Please give me a link to a math lecture script of any university that proves your claim.
