You mean Wunderbar!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Hi bobbym,

Partition problems were hard even for Hardy-Ramanujan,

Did you know there is no analytical answer for anything more then a spread of 2?

I could not find a known solution for k>2. There is one for J(n,k) when k = 2

Me neither. "concrete mathematics" has one for k=2.
It's bit difficult to find a mathematical solution.

See you later..
