Narcissistic numbers!!!check out this link:http://mathworld.wolfram.com/NarcissisticNumber.html The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #2 20110914 03:00:42
Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!Hi anonimnystefy; 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. #3 20110914 04:39:33
Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!you're welcome.i find those interesting,and wonder why mathematicians don't care about them at all.

Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!Because mathematicians are usually not interested in anything but topology. And now that you mentioned it, they will probably make those numbers disappear.

Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!ok most are.but the ones whose main focus is the number theory?

Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!Now? Primes are the reason there is number theory. The ancient greeks did number theory. Nowadays the computational boys are taking over that field and it makes mathematicians queesy. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!
Apart from topology (why?), maybe it's that these numbers are dependent on the decimal base system which is arbitrary. Last edited by Alex23 (20120203 07:13:28) #8 20120203 07:36:42

Re: Narcissistic numbers!!!1. Yes, it won't happen any time soon, but knowing the facts helps things toward that direction. 12 is perfect in that it's not to far from 10 but has more and "better" factors. Last edited by Alex23 (20120203 08:45:48) #10 20120203 08:45:09
