Abstract
Objective: Accumulating evidence indicates that zero divided by zero equal one. Still it is not clear what number theory is saying about this.
Methods: To explore relationship between the problem of the division of zero by zero and number theory, a systematic approach is used while analyzing the relationship between number theory and independence.
Result: The theorems developed in this publication support the thesis that zero divided by zero equals one. It is possible to define the law of independence under conditions of number theory.
Conclusion: The findings of this study suggest that zero divided by zero equals one.

The first such P is the first palindromic abundant number 66 (with corresponding [q, n] = [5, 42], [7, 18]. Another such palindromic abundant numbers are 222, 252, 282, 414, 444, 474, 606, 636, 666.

We prove that a partial sum of zeta(2)-1=z is not given by any single decimal in a number base given by a denominator of its terms. This result, applied to all partials, shows that there are an infinite number of partial sums in one interval of the form [.(x-1),.x] where .x is single decimal in a number base of the denominators of the terms of z. We show that z is contained in an open interval inside [.(x-1),.x]. As all possible rational values of z are in these intervals, z must be irrational.

In this paper I make the following observation: the number n = p – q, where p and q are Poulet numbers, needs very few iterations of “reverse and add” to reach a palindrome. For instance, taking q = 1729 and p = 999986341201, it can be seen that only 3 iterations are needed to reach a palindrome: n = 999986341201 – 1729 = 999986339472 and we have: 999986339472 + 274933689999 = 1274920029471; 1274920029471 + 1749200294721 = 3024120324192 and 3024120324192 + 2914230214203 = 5938350538395, a palindromic number. So, relying on this, I conjecture that there exist an infinity of n, even considering q and p successive, that need just one such iteration to reach a palindrome (see sequence A015976 in OEIS for these numbers) and I also conjecture that there is no a difference between two Poulet numbers to be a Lychrel number.

For instance, taking q = 563 and p = 104723, it can be seen that only 3 iterations are needed to reach a palindrome: n = 104723^2 – 563^6 = 10966589760 and we have: 10966589760 + 6798566901 = 17765156661; 17765156661 + 16665156771 = 34430313432 and 34430313432 + 23431303443 = 57861616875, a palindromic number.

: In this paper the author gives a simplest elementary mathematics method to solve the

this equation become a one unknown number equation, in order to solve this equation the author invented a method called “Order reducing method for equations” where the second order root compares to one order root and with some
necessary techniques the author su
ccessfully proved that there are
no positive integer solutions for x^n+y^n=z^n
which means FLT has been proved by elementary mathematics.

This paper develops a modified an old and well-known expression for calculating and obtaining all prime numbers greater than three and composite numbers divisible by numbers greater than 3. The key for this formula to work correctly is in the equalities and inequalities. These equalities and inequalities are created from the uncovering of the patterns of the composite numbers. The composite numbers follow very clear and determining patterns, making it possible to find them through a formula.

We investigate Riemann's Zeta function, as $(s-1)\zeta(s)$, under the M{\"o}bius transformation $s = \frac{1}{1-z}$ which maps the half plane right to the critical strip to the unit disk. Application of a generalized Poisson-Jensen formula (due to Nevanlinna) shows that the investigated function has only a finite number of zeros in the interior of the unit disk. We show, that the Li coefficients $\lambda_n = \sum_\rho (1-(1-1/\rho)^n)$ are positive for $n> 10^{24}$, and discuss consequences.

In this paper, we reveal a new binomial formula that expresses the sum of, or difference between two powers, a^x \pm b^y, as a binomial expansion of a single power, z. Like the standard binomial formula it includes the normal binomial coefficients, factors and indices, but includes an additional non-standard factor. The new formula (with an upper index z) mimics a standard binomial formula (to the power z) without the value of the binomial expansion changing even when z itself changes. This has exciting implications for certain diophantine equations. This short paper simply highlights its existence.

In psychology, the Chameleon Effect describes how an animal's behaviour can adapt to, or mimic, its environment through non-conscious mimicry. In the first part of this paper, we show how $a^x - b^y$ can be expressed as a binomial expansion (with an upper index, $z$) that, like a chameleon, mimics a standard binomial formula (to the power $z$) without its own value changing even when $z$ itself changes. In the second part we will show how this leads to a proof for the Beal Conjecture. We finish by outlining how this method can be applied to a more generalised form of the equation.

Positive integers which are able to be operated to 1 by the leftwards operational rule and generating positive integers which start with 1 to operate by the rightwards operational rule are one-to-one correspondence and the same. So, we refer to the bunch of integers’ chains to apply the mathematical induction, next classify positive integers to get comparable results via operations, such that finally summarize out a proof at substep according to beforehand prepared two theorems as judgmental criteria.

Multi-dimensional identity refers to the many labels which describe any ‘Thing’ as it exists, meaning both its describable states of existence and whatever processes generate, connect and count across those states. It develops through and out of a base2 pattern that becomes a multi-layered function which generates, relates and counts base10 numbers.

In this small paper, I have argued very simply that "Twin Prime Conjecture" is quite obvious and there is nothing to prove. In fact, it reduces to the hypothesis that prime numbers are infinite in number if we accept the quite random pattern of occurrences of of prime numbers on number line.

In this paper I make the following two conjectures: (I) There exist an infinity of squares of odd numbers n^2 such that n^2 + R(n^2), where R(n^2) is the number obtained reversing the digits of n^2, is a palindromic number; (II) There is no a square of an odd number to be as well Lychrel number. Note that a Lychrel number is a natural number that cannot form a palindrome through the iterative process of repeatedly reversing its digits and adding the resulting numbers (process sometimes called the 196-algorithm, 196 being the smallest such number) – see the sequence A023108 in OEIS.

After that I made some corrections in my another article; but still there were some mistakes. Even so, I can say it easily that here I brought exact solutions for them out by new methods back to the drawing board.

This is a formula that conducts often to primes and composites with very few prime factors; for instance, taking a = 5 and b = 11 are obtained seventeen primes for c and d both less than 100 (for c = 17, n is prime for six values of d up to 100: 17, 29, 35, 59, 71, 77)! Also note that for [a, b, c, d] = [59, 65, 71, 53] (all four less than or equal to 71) is obtained a prime with 59 digits!

Ivan Niven's proof of the irrationality of pi is often cited because it is brief and uses only calculus. However it is not well motivated. Using the concept that a quadratic function with the same symmetric properties as sine should when multiplied by sine and integrated obey upper and lower bounds for the integral, a contradiction is generated for rational candidate values of pi. This simplifying concept yields a more motivated proof of the irrationality of pi and pi squared.

In this paper I make the following conjecture: Any square of a prime p^2, where p > 3, can be written as p + q + (n*q – n + 1) or as p + q + (n*q - n – 1), where q and n*q – n + 1 respectively n*q - n – 1 are primes and n positive integer. Examples: 11^2 = 121 = 11 + 37 + (2*37 – 1), where 37 and 2*37 – 1 = 73 are primes; 13^2 = 169 = 13 + 53 + (2*53 – 3), where 53 and 2*53 – 3 = 103 are primes. An equivalent formulation of the conjecture is that for any prime p, p > 3, there exist n positive integer such that one of the numbers q = (p^2 – p + n – 1)/(n + 1) or q = p^2 – p + n + 1)/(n + 1) is prime satisfying also the condition that p^2 – p – q is prime.

Playing with Carmichael numbers, a set of numbers I’ve always been fond of (I’ve “discovered” Fermat’s “Little” Theorem and the first few Carmichael numbers before I know they had already been discovered), I noticed that the formula C + 81*2^(4*d), where C is a Carmichael number and d one of its prime factors, gives often primes or products of very few primes. For instance, for C = 1493812621027441 are obtained in this manner three primes: 2918779690625137, 6729216728661136606577017055290271857 and 644530914387083488233375393598279808770191171433362641802841314053534708129737067311868017 (a 90-digit prime!), respectively for d = 11, d = 29 and d = 73.

In this paper I make the following conjecture on Poulet numbers: There exist an infinity of Poulet numbers P2 obtained from Poulet numbers P1 in the following way: let d1 and dn be the least respectively the largest prime factors of the number P1, where P1 is a Poulet number; than there exist an infinity of Poulet numbers P2 of the form P1 + |P1 – dn^2|*d1, where |P1 – dn^2| is the absolute value of P1 – dn^2. Example: for Poulet number P1 = 1729 = 7*13*19 is obtained through this operation Poulet number P2 = 11305 (1729 – 19^2 = 1368 and 1729 + 1368*7 = 11305). Note that from 11 from the first 30 Poulet numbers (P1) were obtained through this method Poulet numbers (P2).

In [http://vixra.org/abs/1708.0177] there were many tables, figures, definitions, examples and explanations, which created difficulties in the perception of the material. Taking this into account, in this paper we give a shortened version of the proof of the Collatz conjecture.

A sentence to test is if known zeroes imply other zeroes. This effectively tests if a location of zeroes (trivial based on even numbers) and a location of zeroes (non trivial based on odd numbers) imply possibly another location of zeroes as a tautology, because the question is "Are there possibly other zeroes".

In this paper I make the following conjecture: The square of any odd prime can be obtained from the numbers of the form 360*k + 72 in the following way: let d1, d2, ..., dn be the (not distinct) prime factors of the number 360*k + 72; than for any square of a prime p^2 there exist k such that (d1 - 1)*(d2 - 1)*...*(dn - 1) + 1 = p^2. Example: for p^2 = 13^2 = 169 there exist k = 17 such that from 360*17 + 72 = 6192 = 2^4*3^2*43 is obtained 1^4*2^2*42 + 1 = 169. I also conjecture that any absolute Fermat pseudoprime (Carmichael number) can be obtained through the presented formula, which attests again the special relation that I have often highlighted between the nature of Carmichael numbers and the nature of squares of primes.

In this article, we first classify A, B and C according to their respective odevity, and thereby get rid of two kinds which belong not to AX+BY=CZ. Then, affirm AX+BY=CZ in which case A, B and C have at least a common prime factor by several concrete equalities. After that, prove AX+BY≠CZ in which case A, B and C have not any common prime factor by mathematical induction with the aid of the symmetric law of odd numbers whereby even number 2W-1HZ as symmetric center after divide the inequality in four. Finally, reach a conclusion that the Beal’s conjecture holds water via the comparison between AX+BY=CZ and AX+BY≠CZ under the given requirements.

This article proposes a synthesized classification of some Goldbach-like conjectures, including those which are "stronger" than the Binary Goldbach's Conjecture (BGC) and launches a new generalization of BGC briefly called "the Vertical Binary Goldbach's Conjecture" (VBGC), which is essentially a meta-conjecture, as VBGC states an infinite number of conjectures stronger than BGC, which all apply on "iterative" primes with recursive prime indexes (i-primeths). VBGC was discovered by the author of this paper in 2007 and perfected (by computational verifications) until 2017 by using the arrays of matrices of Goldbach index-partitions, which are a useful tool in studying BGC by focusing on prime indexes. VBGC distinguishes as a very important conjecture of primes, with potential importance in the optimization of the BGC experimental verification (including other possible theoretical and practical applications in mathematics and physics) and a very special self-similar property of the primes set.

This submission is more or less an amateur exposition on a specific elliptic curve, discussing counting points over finite fields as well as constructing an associated $L$-function and pinning down the affiliated special value $L(E, 1)$ for the elliptic curve $E$ primarily discussed throughout this piece. The techniques and tools presented can be carried over to infinitely many elliptic curves partitioned into two sets depending on 'twists' of two specific curves; one of which happens to be the curve previously, and vaguely, mentioned.

In mathematical literature it is asked for a computable function or efficient algorithm to find all, or at least a large subset, of the prime numbers. This paper shows that all primes can be characerised by their reciprocal period length *L* and its figure value *R*. These parameters are given for each prime after inversion to an infinitely repeated period and are used to group all primes into disjoint sets that arise as a function of a geometric progression. This theory suggests new ways to enumerate and find large primes.

Also, it is proved another asymptotic relationship between the sum of the first prime numbers up to the integer part of the square root of a given natural number and the prime counting function.

Theorem of prime pair distribution

The integer 2 satisfies the divisibility definition of a prime number: it is only divisible by itself and 1. The integer 1 also satisfies this definition, and yet, mathematicians generally do not consider 1 a prime. Rather 1 merits a class of its own, belonging neither to the prime nor composite class. In divisibility theory, 2 does occupy a special subclass within the class of prime numbers: it is the only even prime. This paper introduces a theory of numbers called the Prime Set Representation Theory. This theory utilizes the odd primes and does not rely on the primeness of 2. In Prime Set Representation Theory, the odd primes are building blocks of the theory; all integers, including 2, have representations in terms of them. The import of the theory is not to dislodge the integer 2 from its solitary, even-prime status. The theory's efficacy is a better understanding of the distribution of primes, twin primes, and primes of the form x^2 + 1. A natural extension of the theory yields valid and strikingly direct approximation formulas for these prime classifications. The same theory furnishes a new and improved approximation to the number of Goldbach pairs associated with general even number 2n (the improvement is relative to Sylvester's formula for Goldbach pairs, but the formula performs well vis-à-vis the Hardy-Littlewood formulas in the ranges tested).

Regarding Benford's law, many believe that the statistical data sources follow a Benford's law probability density function(1/xLn(10))when, in actuality, it follows a Lognormal probability density function. The only data that strictly follows a Benford's law probability density function is an exponential function i.e. a number (base) raised to a power x. The other sets of data conform to a Lognormal distribution and, as the standard deviation approaches infinity, approximates a true Benford distribution.
Also, the so called Summation theorem whereby the sum of the values with respect to the first digits is a uniform distribution only applies to an exponential function. The data derived from the aforementioned Lognormal distribution is more likely to conform to a Benford like distribution as the data seems to indicate.

We first classify all integers ≥2 into eight kinds, and that formulate each of seven kinds therein into a sum of three unit fractions. For remainder one kind, we classify it into three genera, and that formulate each of two genera therein into a sum of three unit fractions. For remainder one genus, we classify it into five sorts, and that formulate each of three sorts therein into a sum of three unit fractions. For remainder two sorts i.e. 4/(49+120c) and 4/(121+120c) with c≥0, we prove them by logical inference. But miss out 3587 concrete fractions to await computer programming to solve the problem that express each of them into a sum of three unit fractions.

An attempt is made to derive the probability density function of the sum of prime numbers, which is x/Ln(x). This does appear to be quite accurate in predicting the sum of prime numbers less than 100,000( within 0.124%). Given this assertion, an attempt is made to derive the probability density function of the distribution of the prime numbers themselves.

a composite number equal to the sum of two other numbers, suggesting
that s is always to be considered as an integer. Other new information is added

Twin Primes Conjecture: “There are infinitely many primes p such that (p + 2) is also prime”.
In this document I have used the prime numbers theorem enunciated by Carl Friedrich Gauss and the prime numbers theorem in arithmetic progressions. These two theorems applied to a combination of two arithmetic progressions of module 30 that contain prime numbers, allows us to develop a nonprobability general formula to calculate, approximately, the number of prime pairs, p and (p + 2), that are lesser than a number x.
This research is based on a approach designed solely to demonstrate the Twin Prime Conjecture and the Binary Goldbach Conjecture.

Abstract In 1963, a game show called Lets Make A Deal began in the United States. On the show, the host - Monty Hall - would present contestants with the choice of 3 doors, behind only 1 of which was a car. A contestant would pick a door such as No. 1, and Monty, who knew what was behind the doors, would open another door, say No. 2, revealing a goat. Monty would then ask the contestant if they wanted to change their selection to door No. 3. It is widely accepted that the contestant should change doors on the basis that the chances of the car being behind door 3 are 2/3, whereas the chances of the car being behind door 1 are only 1/3. But by appeal to congruities that exist between this seemingly innocuous and simple problem and variety of deeper and less tractable problems, the Monty Hall Problem is revealed as the tip of a great intellectual iceberg.

In 1986 AndrewWiles published a ground-breaking proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. But in spite of the rarity and the significance of the achievement, the underlying reasoning is so convoluted that it would be be extremely difficult -if not impossible- for any but a tiny minority of specialists to understand it. Most must simply take the word of Wiles and his fellow experts that Fermat's Last Theorem has been proved. But the conjecture itself -that no 3 positive integers can satisfy the equation x^n + y^n = z^n for any positive-integer value of n greater than 2- is so simple that a school child could understand it, and Fermat himself claimed that he possessed a proof, one that -if it existed- must have been expressed in the language of 17th century mathematics, and the language of 21st century high school mathematics. Ye there can be no such proof: this note outlines a complimentary but alternative argument to that employed by Wiles that shows why no 17th century proof of the theorem is possible.

A quadratic equation for prime numbers is assumed to be true that satisfy the following four rules. Some prime numbers violate these rules. Whereas some non prime numbers satisfy the four rules. They are not prime, therefore to make them violate the fourth rule we need to study how to choose the value of m and n so as make the quadratic equation as the primes generating formula.

For any given positive integral value of n, we devise an algebraic identity that holds for positive integral Fermat triples equal to (z,y,x) for which z^n-y^n=x^n holds. This identity does not hold for positive integral Fermat triples when the value of n is greater or equal to three. Consequently, our argument constitutes a direct proof that z^n-y^n=x^n does not hold for positive integral values of (z,y,x) when the value of n is greater or equal to three.

We prove that a partial sum of $\zeta(2)-1=z_2$ is not given by any single decimal in a number base given by a denominator of its terms. This result, applied to all partials, shows that there are an infinite number of partial sums in one interval of the form $X_{k^2}=[.(x-1),.x]$ where $.x$ is a single, non-zero decimal in a number base of the denominators of the terms of $z_2$, here $k^2$. Using this property we show that $z_2$ is contained in an open interval inside $X_{k^2}$. As all possible rational values of $z_2$ are the endpoints of these $X_k$ intervals, $z_2$ must be irrational.

For any given positive integral n, we devise an algebraic identity that we show as holding for positive integral Fermat triples equal to (x,y,z) for which x^n+y^n=z^n holds (per our assumption). However, our algebraic identity does not hold for values of n greater or equal to three, thereby contradicting this assumption. Consequently, no positive integral (x,y,z) exists when n has values greater or equal to three.

In this paper, we prove the positivity of Li coefficients for n>10^24. We investigate the Riemann Zeta function, in the form (s-1)zeta(s), under the transformation s = 1/(1-z). We apply a generalised Poisson-Jensen formula to show that Riemann Zeta function has only a finite number of zeros not lying the critical line, and that the Li coefficients are positive for n>10^24. This implicitly proves the validity of Riemann Hypothesis.

Ivan Niven's proof of the irrationality of pi is often cited because it is brief and uses only calculus. However it is not well motivated. Using the concept that a quadratic function with the same symmetric properties as sine should when multiplied by sine and integrated obey upper and lower bounds for the integral, a contradiction is generated for rational candidate values of pi. This simplifying concept yields a more motivated proof of the irrationality of pi and pi squared.

In this article we prove Beal’s conjecture by deductive reasoning by means of elementary algebraic methods. The main assertion in the proof stands upon that the LHS of Beal’s conjecture represents the sum of two monomials of like terms. The monomial on the RHS of Beal’s conjecture can be built by combining the two monomials on the LHS. By representing any number in exponential form of single power as having a unique base-unit it is to be proved that any number in exponential form to be added to it to yield a sum in exponential form of single power must have the same base-unit by virtue of the two numbers having a “block-form” with a building block of their common base-unit. By conversion of the addition process of the two exponential numbers to multiplication, the GCF of the two terms on the LHS of Beal’s conjecture can be factored. Upon factorization of the GCF and making use of power rules, it must be combined with the sum of the two coefficients of the two terms to yield the monomial on the RHS of the conjecture, confirming the proposition that they must have a common and unique base-unit to successfully combine.

In this article we prove Beal’s conjecture by deductive reasoning by means of elementary algebraic methods. The main assertion in the proof stands upon that the LHS of Beal’s equation represents the sum of two monomial functions with common variable. The monomial function on the RHS of Beal’s equation can be built from the sum of the two monomials on the LHS. The Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms on the LHS of the equation is a number in exponential form of single power whose base is the common variable of the two monomials. Upon factorization of the GCF, it must be combined with the sum of the two coefficients of the terms to yield the monomial on the RHS of the equation.

In this paper we give a brief proof of the Collatz conjecture. It is shown that it is more efficient to start calculating the Collatz function C (n) from odd numbers 6m ± 1. It is further proved that if we calculate by the formula ((6n ± 1)·2^q -1) / 3 on the basis of a sequence of numbers 6n ± 1, increasing the exponent of two by 1 at each iteration, then to each number of the form 6n ± 1 there will correspond a set whose elements are numbers of the form 3t, 6m-1 and 6m + 1. Moreover, all sets are disjoint. Then it is shown that if we construct micro graphs of numbers by combining the numbers 6n ± 1 with their elements of the set 3t, 6m-1 and 6m + 1, then combine the micro graphs by combining equal numbers 6n ± 1 and 6m ± 1, then a tree-like fractal graph of numbers. A tree-like fractal graph of numbers, each vertex of which corresponds to numbers of the form 6m ± 1, is a proof of the Collatz conjecture, since any of its vertices is connected with a finite vertex connected with unity.

**Comments:** 17 Pages. Replaces use of Cantor's Diagonal Method with a set topological proof.

A number system is developed to visualize the terms and partials of zeta(n>1). This number system consists of radii that generate sectors. The sectors have areas corresponing to all rational numbers and can be added via a tail to head vector addition. Dots on the circles give an un-ambiguous cross reference to decimal systems in all bases. We show, in the proof section of this paper, first that all partials require decimal bases greater than the last denominator used in the partial, then that this can be used to make a sequence of nested intervals with rational endpoints. Using Cantor's Nested Interval theorem this gives the convergence point of zeta series and disallows rational values, thus proving the irrationality of zeta(n>1).

The sectors have areas corresponing to all rational numbers and can be added via a tail to head vector addition. Dots on the circles give an un-ambiguous cross reference to decimal systems in all bases. We show, in the proof section of this paper, using a modification of Cantor's diagonal method, all zeta(n>1) require a infinite decimal in all bases. This establishes the result.
