Mathematical induction is said to be one of the fundamental pattern of mathematical reasoning, which can reach infinity through the finite. But what does this mean and work exactly? The thrusts of this post are: 1) to show how it works by using an simple example, 2) to explain the essential meaning and procedure of mathematical induction, and 3) to indicate a precondition of it.
Let’s begin with an simple example. 繼續閱讀
