i have been searching for a formula for this but i could only find one for the sum of the first n integers squared which was now i have been producing a formula that can calculate the sum of integers squared no matter where you start or the difference between the integers. i became: so for example if you want to calculate you have to do: is this anything special or anything new that might be usefull. please comment.

If the sum of the squares of the first n positive integers is f(n), then the sum of the squares of k+1, k+2, ..., n is f(n)  f(k). Concretely: (2n^3 + 3n^2 + n  2k^3  3k^2  k)/6

http://www.ssma.org/publications Read this link carefully and look at previous issues and problem proposal publications. If you can write up an article, maybe Mr. Eisenberg will publish it, although i suspect it is harder to publish articles, you may need credentials, but almost anyone can propose a problem. Here is a possible approach, you send Ted Eisenberg your formula along with a numerical example, if you have a proof, send that too, you ask him to put it in the problem section of the journal, something like 'prove the following formula for the sum of n consecutive squares of integers with common difference starting at any integer square' or you may have a better title. Ted puts it in the journal, along with your name as proposer. Mathematicians all over the world see it and work on it, send in solutions. A few months after proposal, Ted publishes the best solution and mentions every name that sent in correct solutions. I don't know how many mathematicians read this journal but it's got to be at least thousands of professionals worldwide so you will get some glory which you can use in a resume. Like i said, i don't know how important your formula is, so i don't know if i'm giving you sound advice, you have to decide for yourself. In my opinion, Ted Eisenberg will put it in the journal.

Does the email link on the site work for you? If it does then click on it and send him an email. I tried it but it's non functioning, but i'm using PS3 to surf the net, PS3 has limitations so when a link doesn't work for me i don't know if the problem is on my end or the other end. You can write up your problem proposal and fax it to him, +97286477648, (not sure about the + for faxes but you need it for international phone calls) Put your phone number, ask him to respond, ask him for his phone number so you can talk to him. Make sure you put in the fax it's a problem proposal for SSMA journal. He's a professor at BenGurion University in BeerSheva Israel and has an office there, the number is public knowledge so i think i can post it here, +97286477800 Try calling him. You may have to figure out time zones since he's in Israel. If all else fails, you can send it to him by regular mail, his address is at the first link i gave in my first post. Here is BenGurion University website http://www.math.bgu.ac.il/ Here is faculty directory with his info (13th from top) http://www.math.bgu.ac.il/people/faculty.html Let me know if you have other questions and how it all turns out. [EDIT]* I haven't made an international phone call in 20 years so i don't know about + signs [ENDEDIT]

I've sent a huge email to him now I will let you know if he replies something.
