Someone different

Math is great field - I love doing math in my spare time amongst other things. I got quite good at it after a while with the gift I have, not being a professional math person, it's not easy to get recognition for your work.
Thanks from greg1313

Welcome.

All monikers aside, what do you hope to achieve while you are a member of this forum? Also, do you plan to add some clarification to your first post here? The meaning of it is not immediately apparent, at least to me.

My psychic gift is access to universal knowledge, the first posting I felt had value in math the real clarification comes with art image that came with it which is not easy to express in words, as the saying goes "a picture is worth 1000 words", my objective here is to present new math finds

I'm sure you will join the long list of illustrious posters here who have shared their new math finds.

Et ludos incipere.
Thanks from skeeter, Denis, Joppy and 1 others

This feat is simply baffling:

I emailed this to someone (years ago) who wanted opinions on the
stupidity of these mathematicians who keep calculating PI forever and
ever. (at bottom is a little true anecdote between me and a wise older
friend, Mason Johnson).
.................................................. ...............................................

Hi. Well, they remind me of the guy who spent years sticking together
over a million matches to come up with a miniature 'London Bridge':
got queer looks, some respect for his tenacity...but only 5 bucks at
the corner pawnshop....

This stupidity seems to have started in England (where else!) in the
early 1900's. A British mathematician William Shanks worked it out to
707 decimal places doing calculations by hand...over 20 years. POOR
BILL: an error in the 528th place was discovered in 1945...wonder if
they changed the inscription on his tombstone.

In Aug/89,YASUMASA KANEDA carried PI to 536,870,000 places, filling
110,000 pages of computer paper taking 67 hours and 13 minutes on
Japan's fastest supercomputer. ...gee, I would have bet my 20 against
your 10 that some Chineese fellow would have done this...doesn't the
rumor say they're the best...like, every respectable computer store
has one constantly working on a computer keyboard, all visible from
the front store window.

Did a search on PI the other day: they're proudly announcing the
crashing of the 2 billion mark...WOW-WEE.

MY SOLUTION
============
Purpose: make Pi=3.14 even.
First, let's use a circle of diameter 12 inches.
Next, let's use 3.14159 as 'the going' PI.
Then:
3.14159 x 12 = 37.699 inches.
3.14000 x 12 = 37.680 inches.
Difference: .019 of an inch (about thickness of 4 sheets of paper).

So, after drawing your 1-foot-diameter-circle, all you need to do is
make 4 little nicks of .00475 inch (.019/4)(thickness of one page) at
each 90 degree and no one will ever know....
WHO CAN I SUGGEST THIS TO IN THE PI KINGDOM??

DENIS AND MASON (a keep-it-simple wise elderly friend)
========================================
DENIS: Hey Mason, just decided to take this amazing course.
MASON: Ya? What's it called?
DENIS: The Sylva Method of Mind Control.
MASON: Hmmm...what will you learn there, Denis?
DENIS: Amazing things, Mason; I'll be able to control my own mind and
make it do all sorts of things.
MASON: Well...can you give me a couple of examples?
DENIS: Sure. At the demonstration, they told me I'd be able to figure
out what my dog is thinking; also, when I get a letter in the
mail, I'll hold it at both ends with my fingertips, concentrate,
and I'll be able to tell what is in the letter...imagine that!
MASON: Gee. Tell me, Denis, how much is this course costing you?
DENIS: Only 325 bucks, Mason.
MASON: Well, why don't you buy yourself a plastic letter opener instead:
only 79 cents at K-Mart....

NOTE: Fortunately, refunds were allowed before the 1st official lesson!!

What about a definite equation for pi expressed as function integers or e^pi as well or maybe counter example for the million prize for the Beal conjecture or a solution to a polynomial equation of any order you never know do you what do you know?
