Recalling the definitions of § 1, we write for , and for . Consider first how one would compute
these quantities using an approximation to the real number . If an approximation
to is used which has , then the error in
the corresponding approximation to is about . Thus, for
large n it will be impossible to compute correctly. In addition, even for small
n, it would be impossible to decide whether or not for some .
