Hi MaplePrimes,

another_recursive_sequence.mw

another_recursive_sequence.pdf

These two files have the same content.  One is a .pdf and the other is a Maple Worksheet.  I explore integer sequences of the form - 

a(r) = c*a(r-1)+d*a(r-2) with a(1) and a(2) given.

Some of these sequences are in (the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences) OEIS.org and some are not.  If we restrict c to 1 and assume that a(1)=1 and a(2) = 2 we have the parameter d remaining.  See additional webpage -

Let me know if you like the code.

Regards,

Matt

 

Hi everybody,

The Collatz conjecture can be used to give students a taste of a topic in Number Theory.  See the Wikipedia article for a good explaination.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collatz_conjecture

Also, a conjecture is something that is probrably true.  Enjoy my little Maple procedure.  (in .mw and .pdf forms)

Comments are appreciated.

HI MaplePrimes.com and other watchers,

Please enjoy the attaced files about combinatorics.
You may already know what '4 choose 3' is.

Hopefully this can be useful to the casual mathematical observer.

Hi MaplePrimes,

This YouTube video has a nice puzzle. 

It is titled "Can you solve the locker riddle". 
My first blush was to consider modular arithmatic

Here is a maple page -

Have a very fine rest of the day.

Hi Mapleprimes,

I have made this little procedure with Maple. 

check_g_conjecture_10.pdf

similar to this next one check_g_conjecture_10.mw

This may be worth a look.

Regards,

Matthew

P.S.   see  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldbach%27s_conjecture

In My Humble Opinion, Wikipedia is a good crowd sourced resource.
