$\sum_{n=0}^\infty e^{nix}$ is Cesàro Summable
Back when I was a Ph.D. student, a friend of mine (he was a Ph.D. student in physics studying laser optics) asked me if the series $\sum_{n=0}^\infty e^{nix}$ converges. I vaguely remember that his advisor needed to have a finite … Continue reading

$1+2+3+4+\cdots=\frac{1}{12}$?
No, folks! I am not drunk nor I am potheaded. Yet, I am about to discuss the crazy identity $$1+2+3+4+\cdots=\frac{1}{12}.$$ No, I am not joking either. This is actually pretty serious mathematics and is also pretty serious stuff even to … Continue reading

Real Structure, Fundamental Symmetry and Quantum Mechanics
In the standard Hermitian quantum mechanics, the space of states of a quantum mechanical system forms a complex Hilbert space in general. But often the space of states becomes a real vector space. When the space of states is a … Continue reading
