Thanks for the catch, you were right about that subscript n I'd omitted on the Liouville-Neumann series article. It's fixed now. Bryan 23:32, 24 Oct 2003 (UTC)



Hello, I noticed that you corrected the definition on computable number. Thanks! I thought this was the original definition by Turing, but probabably not... Cheers, AxelBoldt 17:21, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

It turns out that Turing did define computability of a number as computability of the digit sequence. I added a paragraph to that effect to computable number. Could you read it over? AxelBoldt 15:07, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)
I do agree that your recent changes have improved computable number. I wanted to make one further change, to state that the two definitions were [[???|classically]] but not [[constructively|Intuitionistic logic]] equivalent; but I couldn't find a place to link for "classically". Shouldn't there be one? (I see that Intuitionistic logic uses "classic" and its derivatives many times, but none of them are links.) Cwitty 03:23, 4 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Enchanted Chocolate Pot[edit]

You wrote on my talk page:

In an edit summary for Patricia Wrede, you say: "if you bother to check the author's website you will discover that the entire series is named after the subtitle of the first book". Where do I find this? I didn't see anything like this in a quick skim of the "official site" link from Patricia Wrede. There is a Caroline Stevermer web page, where the web page as a whole is named "The Enchanted Chocolate Pot"; but I don't really see an indication that that's supposed to be the name of the series (after all, A College of Magics and A Scholar of Magics are discussed on the same page).

It is now the end of a very hot, sticky (July, finally!) and annoying day at work (bloody solicitors), and I am incapable of thinking straight, so I'm going to go home, cool down, and return in the morning, when I hope I will be in a condition to address your question in the polite manner it deserves. In the meantime, I'm positive I'm correct in some way however small and insignificant, I just hope that I will be able to prove it to the satisfaction of both of us ;-) Actually I've just remembered that I received an email from Pat Wrede thanking me for my efforts (which might or might not mean she's read the article :-) so I'll drop her a line asking her for a definitive answer.

No, I owe you an apology. I've received a reply from Pat Wrede stating It's the subtitle for the first book. We haven't figured out a title for the series yet. So you were indeed correct and I have updated the article accordingly. Although to be fair to me, CS does refer on her website to "The new Enchanted Chocolate Pot book, The Magician's Ward!" (sic) which is probably where I picked it up. --Phil | Talk 17:08, Aug 5, 2004 (UTC)
