Abstract

Bounding a Sum on a Sleepless Evening (with apologies to Robert Frost) R. J. Wolfe Whose proofs these are, I think I know He assigned the work a week ago. The answers I have written here Will make him jump and holler ‘‘No!’’ Our careful prof will think it queer The derivation stops right here. I may have made a small mistake But all the rest was very clear. More time a better proof would make But my brain is about to break. And soon I shall but stop and weep Because a final grade’s at stake. My love of math is not so deep This proof can take a flying leap. And I go get myself some sleep And I go get myself some sleep.
