Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersI thought the champion back then was Dase, whom Gauss used as a human computer. He could multiply two one hundred digit numbers in his head in less than 6 hours! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #78 20130426 23:23:07
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersI don't know anything about either of those two. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #79 20130426 23:32:54
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersHmmm, maybe he can only do the 13th root?! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #80 20130427 02:11:38
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersI believe he simply learnt by heart the 13th roots of all the numbers from 8,192 to 99,999,999,999,999,743,031,952,041,096,987,073,685,867,014,387,525,794,216,027,198,214,444,23

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersSo he was a phony idiot savant. I hate that. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #82 20130427 09:57:13
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersLemaire was quoted as saying in November 2007:
Well, in view of what I said in my previous post, the last digit for the 10/12/2007 test would have been very easy!

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersI am convinced. When do we go find him and beat the snot out of him. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #84 20130427 10:18:00
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersIn umpteen years time, after I've done enough 13th power memory exercises. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #85 20130427 10:19:23

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersYou are correct about that number he got the 13th root to. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #87 20130427 19:48:59
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersSorry about that new post I deleted just now, but I got it wrong and replaced it with this one. I hope I was quick enough and that you haven't read it.

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersThe first in the range is the 13th power of the smallest integer greater than 1, and the last in the range is the largest 200digit 13th power of an integer.

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersSo, he only had to memorize less then 200 numbers? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #91 20130427 20:17:33
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersYes. Easily done, for the 13th power of each of the 393,544,396,177,593 numbers in the range 2,030,917,620,904,736 to 24,244,620,17082,328 of the competition.

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersSorry, it is late and I am not at all sharp. Were you being sarcastic about him being able to do it? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #93 20130427 20:55:08
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersWould they be able to get the 13th root of nonperfect 13th power? Or they simply knows how to calculate integers? Our brains are capable of doing many things wonderful and complex but why bother if you can use calculator or computer:) #94 20130427 21:17:37

Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersI feel a rant coming on. Nope, I suppressed it. The viewpoint in modern mathematics is so prevalent that numerical work is garbage compared to the ability to juggle axioms that little serious study is done. The feeling is that this ability among others is unimportant even trivial. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #97 20130427 21:44:06
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersIn most things you need a sound working knowledge of the basics to progress successfully. That knowledge comes with study and application. Why should maths be any different? "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #98 20130427 21:48:49
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersIf I have understood your reply I can only say because mathematicians are a snobby, stuck up lot that only believe their particular specialty is mathematics. They ridicule and even persecute those who are doing something other than their type mathematics. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #99 20130427 22:41:41
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersYou're not generalising just the teeeensiest, weeeensiest, little bit, are you? "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #100 20130427 22:46:03
Re: My New Twin Prime NumbersHeck, I would never call you a mathematician, unless I hated you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
