0

     

Zero is the integer denoted 0 that, when used as a counting number, means that no objects are present. It is the only integer (and, in fact, the only real number) that is neither negative nor positive. A number which is not zero is said khổng lồ be nonzero. A root of a function

*
is also sometimes known as "a zero of
*
."

The Schoolhouse Rock segment "My Hero, Zero" (Multiplication Rock, Season 1, Episode 2, 1973) extols the virtues of zero with such praises as, "My hero, zero Such a funny little hero But till you came along We counted on our fingers and toes Now you"re here to lớn stay and nobody really knows How wonderful you are Why we could never reach a star Without you, zero, my nhân vật How wonderful you are."

Zero is commonly taken lớn have the factorization

*
(e.g., in the conhantaohpg.com Language"s FactorInteger command). On the other hand, the divisors and divisor function
*
are generally taken khổng lồ be undefined, since by convention,
*
(i.e.,
*
divides 0) for every
*
except zero.

Because the number of permutations of 0 elements is 1,

*
(zero factorial) is defined as 1 (Wells 1986, p.31). This definition is useful in expressing many mathematical identities in simple form.

A number other than 0 taken lớn the power nguồn 0 is definedto be 1, which follows from the limit

This fact is illustrated by the convergence of curves at

for
*
, 0.4, ..., 2.0. It can also be seen more intuitively by noting that repeatedly taking the square root of a number
*
1" /> gives smaller & smaller numbers that approach one from above, while doing the same with a number between 0 và 1 gives larger & larger numbers that approach one from below. For
*
square roots, the total power nguồn taken is
*
, which approaches 0 as

is large, giving
*
in the limit that
*
is large.

*
itself is undefined. The lack of a well-defined meaning for this quantity follows from the mutually contradictory facts that
*
is always 1, so
*
should equal 1, but
*
is always 0 (for
*
0" />), so
*
should equal 0. It could be argued that
*
is a natural definition since


*
0)n^n=lim_(n->0^+)n^n=lim_(n->0^-)n^n=1. " />

However, the limit does not exist for general complex values of

. Therefore, the choice of definition for

is usually defined khổng lồ be indeterminate.

However, defining

allows some formulas khổng lồ be expressed simply (Knuth 1992; Knuth 1997, p.57), an example of which is the beautiful analytical formula for the integral of the generalized sinc function

Richardson"s theorem is a fundamental result in decidability theory which establishes that the determination of whether even simple expressions are identically equal to lớn zero is undecidable in principle, let alone in practice.

The following table gives the first few numbers

such that the decimal expansion of

for which

While it has not been proven that the numbers listed above are the only ones without zeros for a given base, the probability that any additional ones exist is vanishingly small. Under this assumption, the sequence of largest
