• ## The Odd Integers 3 Through 129

Advertisements Arranged as Red Squares on a Square Grid Artistically Arranged According to Their Differences-of-Squares Expression Based on Their Ceiling Squares

• ## More Visualization

Advertisements Here are icons for the odd integers from 3 to 65, based on the differences of each with their ceiling squares (the smallest perfect square greater than their value). The integer corresponding to an icon is the number of red 1×1 squares in that icon.

• ## Today’s Mathematical Visualization

Advertisements This is an artistically arranged grid-based drawing of the first 24 odd integers greater than 1, expressed as differences of squares – to include the first odd positive integer to have two different “non-trivial” factorizations, and thus two different square-difference representations.

• ## Adjusted Scatter Plot for Integer Factorization Study

Advertisements The plot below is similar to the one I put in my previous post. However, the data points are, I think, a better set for exposing properties, since I am using the concept of Adjusted Ceiling Square as follows: Let m be an odd positive integer. Define the Adjusted Ceiling Square of m as…

• ## My Integer Factorization Study: Hahaha!!

Advertisements I am laughing at the sheer trickiness, almost by design, of the mathematical relationships I am uncovering in my number study, and the most recent one in particular. I shared yesterday the VERY SMOOT GRAPH, suggesting to me a parabola, charting out the plot of odd integer m vs. the difference between (m+1)/2 and…

• ## Integer Factorization: Update, 10/12/2022

Advertisements Lately, I’ve just been switching back and forth between a kind of macrovision and microvision in examining properties related to my factorization study. I’ve gone back to my table of large (but not very large) discrete semiprimes, and I’ve also looked at, and added information to, my table of the smallest discrete semiprimes, all…

• ## Integer Factorization: Reestablishing Some Basic Steps

Advertisements I wrote this in an effort to restate some recent basic observations plainly. I am confident that this is no newly-discovered set of mathematical truths, but I am enjoying making these derivations piece by piece and seeing what may follow from each successive one. Perhaps someday I will end up somewhere new. Right now,…

• ## Mathematical Explorations: Maximally Composite

Advertisements It’s time for some fun and games with some square-free “maximally composite” odd numbers and all their representations as the difference of perfect squares. It’s kind of like following a growing pristine wave with patterns I didn’t expect to encounter, until it smashes into foam and chaos against a rocky shore.

• ## Integer Factorization: Quick Observation

Advertisements Examining the series of real values of x for which f(x)=x2+2cx+r is a perfect square, when m=c2-r is the number we wish to factor, c is the Ceiling Root, and r is the difference between m and the Ceiling Square, is not evidently any better – and is in fact a slower and unenlightening…
