Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Yikes! What question are you asking? You can not expect a closed form for that recurrence.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Hm, maybe we can watch how the binary representation changes?

I am not following you. The binary representation of the output sequence?

Yes. a_n's in binary.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Okay, give me some time to enter the recurrence and compute some numbers.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Is there an M command for binary to decimal and decimal to binary conversion?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

What are the initial conditions for the difference equation?

Go into the pull down menu for help,

Virtual Book > Mathematics and Algorithms > Numbers > Digits in Numbers

there is all the information you need.

a_1=1.

I will look at that later.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

I have probably misunderstood something so let me check each part. In post #25, does that replace the Xor as well as the binary representation ?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

It does not replace the xor. Just the binary stuff.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

So this expression

is xored with a[n-1]?

You haven't copied it correctly.

But, yes. We xor that with a[n-1].

Great! What now?

By the way, I just read Heinlein's "And he built a crooked house".

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

That is true. I do not know how to get a general form from those.

Have you tried FindSequenceFunction on the terms?

That was the second thing I did.

In chained notation:

M = Newton -> Euler -> Fermat
