Hi Everyone!

I have been enjoying math ever since high school. I love primes and consider any composite number like a molecule composed of distinct prime factors. I like to represent numbers a couple dozen or hundred digits long by simple expressions and consider it like "exploring space with a telescope". Discovering weird sequences fascinate me; right now I am enjoying the Smarandache Reverse Power Summation numbers. I've got a BSc in math and a MSc in agricultural math modelling from Dalhousie. I slavishly use Wolfram|Alpha for spontaneous calculations and occasionally program with R.

I just discovered this website so I have no clue what the focus or interests of others are yet. Math IS fun!!

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.

Hi pellerinb;

Welcome to the forum!

hi pellerinb

Welcome to the forum.

I have no clue what the focus or interests of others are yet. Math IS fun!!

But that's it. The focus is Math is fun. You've worked it out already!

And I proved it a while back. I'll try to track down the thread.

Thanks for that, Bob! That's pretty neat.

Hi pellerinb

Welcome to the forum!

It is great meeting other math enthusiasts!
