Dear Mr. Cass:
The name as written was 'divisor products', but if there are any other
names, please do tell me! All I saw was a basic beauty and simplicity
worth sharing in all respects.
But now that I have you engaged and you clearly a mind to visualize
these sorts of things, here's a leap!
Given this first set of 'Divisor Products' given (first paragraph
Is indeed it true to be the case clearly before our eyes that:
( Pd(n) is the product of all positive divisors of n.)?
(and if so, then can we continue?)
N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
And then could we take this set (the first
one and compare it to)?:
'Proper Divisor Products':
( Pd(n) is the product of all positive divisors of n but n.)
I guess what I am saying is I see a way to take ten numbers and twenty-
six letters and boil it down to something by which we are able to
compare as two things?
(Perhaps, out of my earnest, and overzealot naivie, I have rushed to
judgment on the importancde of boilding down things into sets of two,
but it seems to me this is especially of importance in number theory
as it relates to the computer science area?
Expound, amaze me, I have to admit you did when you saw what you saw
without a detailed or lengthy diatribe necessary to spot it.
Is it not promising, the design is inherent, so much so you spotted it
wouth but two words!
