Smarandache Reverse Power Summation (SRPS) numbersI read an article about SRPS numbers and thought it would be neat to explore this sequence a little more. The article is available on the Free Online Library titled as above by Jason Earls. Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms. Composites are two or more primes held together by multiplication. In biology, we use math like we know what we are talking about. Sad isn't it. #2 20121227 04:56:46
Re: Smarandache Reverse Power Summation (SRPS) numbersHi pellerinb; 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 20121227 05:02:16
Re: Smarandache Reverse Power Summation (SRPS) numbersI cannot post a download link because I am not an "established" member yet. However, google "smarandache reverse power summation numbers the free library" and it should be the first hit. Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms.

Re: Smarandache Reverse Power Summation (SRPS) numbersAbsolutely. 20 / 100 implies that 20 out of the first 100 numbers are divisible by 5, etc. It's apparently a repeating pattern too, so the next 100 numbers are divisible by 5 as were the first. Entering "[Table[sum from k = 1 to T (Tk+1)^k, {T,1,200}]] mod 5" in WolframAlpha shows the residues modulo 5 for the first 200 SRPS numbers.
