comment Mathematical functions that can't be computed
Hm, you are right, it is misleading - I remove it. The "busy beaver function" is a better example, like Qiaochu Yuan answered.

comment Mathematical functions that can't be computed
Your explanation has flaws: 1) Either programs can print the number π like this: "π" or "Pi". Or they cannot even print some rational numbers like 1/3 because of their infinite number of digits after the dot. 2) There do not exist numbers which definitely need an infinite description, because otherwise only undefinable infinite long formulas would be possible to evaluate to those numbers. 3) The Question is about functions and programs, not numbers and formulas that define numbers.

Jep, did think about that last night. I'll fix this...

comment Pigeon Hole Principle
they just need to be connected somehow: 5+3=8 devices, that need not more than 8-1=7 connections. do you want to specify any extra conditions?

comment Isomorphism between [0,1] to (0,1)
@user3224: an Isomorphism is a special Homomorphism, which is a structure-preserving map between two algebraic structures. so, what is the structure on those sets? or do you only want any bijective map?
