Re: Bafflers of the Bulge, the Beginning.

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?

Re: Bafflers of the Bulge, the Beginning.

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

Re: Bafflers of the Bulge, the Beginning.

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

See you later..
