Re: A nice diophantine equation.Check the post above you. That one works!!!!! Shortest one yet! But if you use knowledge of landau notation you can see how we could derived it from my answer! 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. #52 20121227 07:20:06
Re: A nice diophantine equation.Ah, I know what my mistake was! I calculated Gamma(3) to be 6!!! 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 #53 20121227 07:21:09
Re: A nice diophantine equation.Do you see how we could have gotten it from mine? The n^2/60 term is dominant for large n. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: A nice diophantine equation.Yes, the answer is awesome.
