You've all been indoctrinated into accepting that you cannot divide by zero. Find out about the beautiful mathematics that results when you do it anyway in calculus. Featuring some of the most notorious "forbidden" expressions like 0/0 and 1^∞ as well as Apple's Siri and Sir Isaac Newton.

In his book “Yearning for the impossible” one my favourite authors John Stillwell says “…mathematics is a story of close encounters with the impossible and all its great discoveries are close encounters with the impossible.” What we talk about in this video and quite a few other Mathologer videos are great examples of these sort of close encounters.

Thank you very much to Danil Dmitriev the official Mathologer translator for Russian for his subtitles.

Enjoy :)
