Advertisements An incidental quirk i noticed in jumpfactor.pl outputs led me to scurry to program a jumpfact2.pl based thereon, but which produced a speedup in only one out of the fifty test numbers (10 to 12 digits) of my discrete semiprime data suite. What that exciting/disappointing work caused me to pause has resumed: a more…

Integer Factorization, Determinism, and Time’s Arrow
Advertisements A positive integer m greater than 1 has a representation as the product of powers of distinct prime numbers that is unique except for the order in the representation of m’s prime factors. One can establish uniqueness by requiring that the prime factors, regardless of their exponents, appear in ascending numerical order. If m…

Some Physics Arithmetic to Ponder
Advertisements A space/time physics thought experiment, of sorts, which I imagined today, along with questions that make it an experiment and an interesting one, in my view, goes as follows. A pair of advanced and durable satellites, built to communicate with each other across vast distances while exploring space, EXO1 and EXO2, head for respective…

Advertisements I wonder if the acceleration of information and technology and the interactions of both on the human mind affect the ways we perceive and experience time, both at the seconds level and at the years level. It might have to do with changes in the lengths and qualities of our relationships. And it may…
