    I was wondering if there was an elegant proof for the relation shown in this image.

    I think I formulated the expression correctly however I failed to prove it.

    Thanks.

    I am but I use my irl name so I can't tell anyone :ninja: Stack exchange is great and I go there for all my coding/programming problems but it's a lot more focused (which can be good for some and not so good for others).

    I use Quora cause of the randomness of the feed which lets me learn a lot more about areas outside of my interests

    Ah, okay.

    Stackexchange has that thing on the sidebars, I can't tell you the number of times I've ended up learning about aviation, childcare tips, cycling safety, academia, etc... :lol:

    Childcare tips/cycling safety :rofl:

    I love seeing the professors and PhDs at crazy places like MIT just writing casually and explaining physics to everyone. They're amazing at breaking it down for the laymen

    I think the answer to that - and one you'll hear from many active researchers - is that reflecting on the simple basic facts of science and trying to communicate these to non-experts is extraordinarily fertile for helping think through the really hard stuff. If you can cut to what really matters, then you can cut out all the distracting junk to get to the heart of an unsolved problem.

    Good point, thanks for the inside perspective.
