Elaboration of the Recursive Pattern in Developing the Primes
In earlier posts, for example this one: http://www.petequinnramblings.wordpress.com/2011/12/13/amoreefficientimplementationoferatosthenessieve/ (sorry I can’t figure out how to insert hyperlinks) I have described a recursive pattern that captures the mechanics of the sieve of Eratosthenes in apparently much simpler form, leading to a … Continue reading

On the Error between my estimate for pi(Pn^2) and Pn^2/ln(Pn^2)
I’m rather excited about a minibreakthrough, although I can’t yet make a definitive claim about its significance. I’ve previously provided an estimate for the number of primes less than Pn^2 as: PQ(Pn^2) = Pn^2 x (product for i=1 to n … Continue reading

Binary Representations of Inverted Primes – Continued
I’ve generated the binary representations of a few more inverted primes, from 37 to 67, to investigate whether the observed patterns continue. In the following, I’ve used superscripts to represent multiple 1’s or 0’s, as illustrated for 1/37: I’ve noted … Continue reading

Binary Representations of Inverted Primes
I have been reading a book by Manfred Schroeder called “Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws” and in it he uses binary numbers to explore a variety of patterns, including some involving the Fibonacci numbers, the golden mean, etc. This got me … Continue reading
