Mathematical Induction

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Prove It: The Art of Mathematical Argument

Mathematical Induction

Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

In the first of three lectures on mathematical induction, try out this powerful tool for proving theorems about the positive integers. See how an inductive proof is like knocking over a row of dominos: Once the base case pushes over a second case, then by induction all cases fall.
