The Divergent Integral Speaks

April 3, 2009

You may try to contain me

Alas, my friend, it cannot be done

In the quest to define me as a numerical limit,

no mathematician has ever won

I have swept past every real integer, positive and negative alike

If you were to try and trace my path, you’d be on an infinitely long hike

I’ve even sailed by rationals and irrationals in both directions

Still want to try and calculate my limit?

Most wouldn’t, but use your discretion.

If you think I am unduly rude or defiant, this is mathematics; you might as well get used to it.

Quite a lot of other functions you encounter

Will not have what you consider a “proper fit.”
