Abstract:
In mathematics and sciences, we may
encounter a useful sequence whose 100th (or much
later) term we need to know. Often, the sequence is
calculable one-after-another, which can lead to a
possibly laborious voyage. Is there a way to `teleport’?
To calculate the 100th term of a sequence without
calculating the first 99 terms? In this talk, we explore a
wonderful mathematical method for doing so that we
don’t normally meet in our existing math courses.
