I thought any combination of mixed colours is possible with Rubix cubes.
Am I wrong?

Square Primes

If a square prime is defined to be a positive integer with no square factors other than 1 , how does the frequency of occurring square primes vary as the integers get larger? Using this to indicate square primes with: #include <iostream> #include <iomanip> #include <cstring> #include <cstdlib> #incl...

Re: "Overstimulated" Discussion

This won't work. It's true (and not hard to prove) that the harmonic series of natural numbers diverges (your second formula). However, this doesn't necessarily imply that the harmonic series of any subset of the natural numbers diverges. For instance, \sum_{i=1}^\infty \frac{1}{n^2} converges. You...

Re: "Overstimulated" Discussion

Comic implies that:
[math]\lim_{n \to \infty}\sum_{i=0}^n\frac{1}{P_i}=\infty[/math]
where [imath]P_i[/imath] is a function that generates prime numbers.

Seems straight forward to me as:

[math]\lim_{n \to \infty}\sum_{i\geq1}^n\frac{1}{i}=\infty[/math]
is also true.
