## Count by meaningful numbers

### Count by meaningful numbers

I'll give two examples because it's easier to demonstrate than just explain.

Sweet 16

Count upward by numbers with which you associate some meaning. It can be a personal meaning for you, too. And it can take a sentence or so to explain if needed.

You can skip numbers, but try not to skip too far at once, and give people some time to respond before you add a post where you're skipping. You can also post non-integers if you have one.

No back-tracking. You can only post a number higher than the previous post.

For the two examples I gave above, you can use my examples because I kind of ruined them.

### Re: Count by meaningful numbers

Not part of the game now, and I see there are many meaningful numbers that can go before it.

It is interesting because it is the diagonal of a square side one. It is irrational, meaning that if you graph y=x*√2, the only graph point the line passes through is 0,0. I remember this graph because it was illustrated by a square standing up diagonally at x=1, with its top corner giving the point for the graph line at y=√2.

It's used in ISO 216 paper sizes, meaning the aspect ratio stays the same when the paper is cut in half.

Can you briefly explain what's interesting about it, or even just give a link? The spirit of the game/activity is sort of that everyone should understand why a number is on the list.

1.059463094359295264561825294946

Which is the twelfth root of two (that is, if you multiply it by itself 12 times you get 2.)

It's the proportion between the frequencies of adjacent semitones in the equal temperament scale.

It's important because without it we wouldn't be able to tune the difference in the musical notes of virtual instruments (for real instruments we can do it by ear - with this number we can pick any kind of sound, and make a virtual instrument out of it by just separating every note by a factor of 1.059463094359295264561825294946.)

I don't know if this is legal, but I don't see in the rules mentioning that it's illegal to count when someone else has posted after you if they didn't keep counting.

1.060660171779821286601266543157

Which is the Square Root of 2 multiplied by 3 and divided by 4.

Why is it interesting:

Imagine a cube that has all the sides being length 1. Now, imagine that there's another cube that passes through this cube and makes a hole through it. It turns out, that if the new cube is too big, the old cube is destroyed. So there's a cube with a size that is the biggest one that can pass through the old cube without destroying it. The biggest cube is called a Prince Rupert's Cube, and has all the sides being length 1.060660171779821286601266543157.

After the hole is made the cube of length one looks like this:

It's the first palindrome.

Or, if you are a pedant, it's the first palindrome that isn't stupid (like 0.0 or 1) or messed up by the decimal point or negative sign (like .505 or -1.1) or what have you.

Oh dammit I missed 2 because I was letting you get all your deep math things out. I'm getting 3 before someone gets in ahead of me, and then I think I know what will come next.

3 is a number that has a School House Rock song about it. It is also significant for the structural integrity of triangles.

### Re: Count by meaningful numbers

I still don't get why people use that symbol for pi when there's a much better one available (𝜋.) Seriously, every time people have to use a symbol they use π. I'd certainly would never use π if I had to draw pi on a blackboard.

Back to topic:

3.162277660168379331998893544433

This is the square root of 10.

It's the result of the square root of 2 multiplied by the square root of 5 (the area of a rectangle with those sides.)

The length of the diagonal of a rectangle of sides 1 and 3.

The length of the diagonal of a rectangle of sides 2 and the square root of 6.

The length of the diagonal of a rectangle of sides square root of 3 and the square root of 7.

And the length of the diagonal of a square with sides square root of 5.

It's cool because this is like the pi of 4 sided shapes!

Wait, what? Do you see a box with numbers or a question mark instead of pi there?

Anyway, continuing:

γ

AKA 3.275822918721811159787681882 (Lévy's constant)

Which is e (Euler's Constant as mentioned by bachaddict) multiplied by itself 1.1865691104 times.

1.1865691104 is 𝜋 squared and divided by 12*0.693147181

0.693147181 is ln 2.

ln 2 means "the natural logarithm of 2".

What is a natural logarithm? Well, to understand them you have to understand numeric bases.

In this thread we all use base 10, base 10 means, that we use 10 symbols to represent numbers, those symbols are:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

And once you run out of symbols, you use again your first and second symbol to represent the next value:

10

And so on.

There's also base 1:

1 11 111 1111 11111...

Binary, the language of computers:

0000 0001 0010 0011 0100 0101 0110 0111 1000 1001 1010 1011 1100 1101 1110 1111...

Hexadecimal, used by computers to group binary numbers:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D F

The dozenal system, superior to the decimal system that we use, because it has very nice looking values for which decimal has the crappy 0.333repeating/0.666repeating stuff:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 𝓧 Ɛ

Anyway, a natural logarithm is that number written in base e (Euler's Constant as mentioned by bachaddict), or a number base with e symbols.

γ is important because that's to where all (except finitely many) real numbers arrive if you take the limit of (xn)^1/n as n approaches infinity.

- It's used in Bose–Einstein statistics and Fermi–Dirac statistics, which in quantum statistics, is one of two possible ways in which a collection of non-interacting indistinguishable particles may occupy a set of available discrete energy states, at thermodynamic equilibrium, and describes a distribution of particles in certain systems comprising many identical particles that obey the Pauli exclusion principle, respectively.
- Occurs in the results of delay differential equations, in which the derivative of the unknown function at a certain time is given in terms of the values of the function at previous times.
- In the Michaelis–Menten kinetics of enzyme kinetics of biochemistry, describes a closed-form solution for the time course kinetics analysis.

9.

It's meaningful because nine of an object can be arranged into a 3x3 grid with the same aspect ratio as the original object. Works best with squares.

It's the highest digit in base 10. When working with computers you get used to numbering things from 0-9 rather than 1-10.

Personally meaningful because it features twice in my birth year

### Re: Count by meaningful numbers

^But, if you check the video I posted before, that's only because the French made it so, and it's their fault we have to use 2 hands to count to 10 (when 1 hand is enough to count to 12). We might be a better mathematical world if it weren't for the French Revolution (specifically, many people "are bad at math" due to the difficulty added by the decimal system, so we'd have more people being good at it if we taught children a different system that is easier to use).

But why am I ranting here? o_O Er, back to topic. Good to see you contributing 12obin.

L

This is Landau's constant L, a number that we really don't know exactly, but it's a value between

10 < L*20 < 10.88

That is, it could be, for all we know, 10.000...big number of 0s...0001 (when multiplied by 20.)

Why is it important?

Well, let's go back to the complex plane. You know that when we talk about the number 1, we can imagine a line that goes from to 0 to 1:

Well, on the imaginary numbers, we can draw a line that goes from 0 to i.

So what happens when you draw a circle, that touches these points, and has 0 at its center? We have what is called an "unit disk." A disk that is plotted which has radius 1, and from its center, the outline of the circle is at distance 1 from the center.

This is easy for the complex plane because it's a 2D object and you can only take a direction in 360 degrees or its fractions. But what happens when you take other kind of planes that are stretched or squeezed out? Imagine that you have an elastic page of paper, and that you stretch and squeeze it in some way, and then, you draw on it, the complex plane, and you draw a circle of length 1 as described above.

Once you let it go, you'd have a very deformed circle on your deformed plane, and now the distances from the outline of your circle to the center of the plane would vary.

Holomorphic functions are used to differentiate and analyze the many ways in where, say, you could stretch the elastic page and the many planes that you could have in it.

A biholomorphic function is a function that allows you to translate an image that you draw in some plane to another plane.

What Landau did was defining F to be the set of all holomorphic functions for which a given function on the unit disk gives you 1 with an input of 0, L_f would be the radius of the largest disk in f, and B_f would be the radius of the largest disk in a biholomorphic image of a subset of a unit disk (that is, a piece of the disk that can be translated into the function to give a value of 1 with an input of 0.)

Finally, we have to talk about infimums and supremums in mathematics.

Suppose you have a set that has, I don't know, all the positive numbers that are even and below 100, these would be:

2, 4, 6...96, 98

So in this set, you can create a new subset, composed of numbers multiple of 4. And you have this new set:

4, 8, 12...92, 96.

So in this set, the infimum is the lowest value (4), and the supremum is the highest value (96)

What Landau found out was that the infimum of the set of all possible values in L_f or B_f were his three constants:

8.66 + (20x10^-14) < B*20 < 9.44

10 < A*20 < 15.706

And our little friend.

10 < L*20 < 10.88

Code: Select all

`.-------.`

0 1

Well, on the imaginary numbers, we can draw a line that goes from 0 to i.

Code: Select all

`.i`

¦

¦

¦

.0

So what happens when you draw a circle, that touches these points, and has 0 at its center? We have what is called an "unit disk." A disk that is plotted which has radius 1, and from its center, the outline of the circle is at distance 1 from the center.

This is easy for the complex plane because it's a 2D object and you can only take a direction in 360 degrees or its fractions. But what happens when you take other kind of planes that are stretched or squeezed out? Imagine that you have an elastic page of paper, and that you stretch and squeeze it in some way, and then, you draw on it, the complex plane, and you draw a circle of length 1 as described above.

Once you let it go, you'd have a very deformed circle on your deformed plane, and now the distances from the outline of your circle to the center of the plane would vary.

Holomorphic functions are used to differentiate and analyze the many ways in where, say, you could stretch the elastic page and the many planes that you could have in it.

A biholomorphic function is a function that allows you to translate an image that you draw in some plane to another plane.

What Landau did was defining F to be the set of all holomorphic functions for which a given function on the unit disk gives you 1 with an input of 0, L_f would be the radius of the largest disk in f, and B_f would be the radius of the largest disk in a biholomorphic image of a subset of a unit disk (that is, a piece of the disk that can be translated into the function to give a value of 1 with an input of 0.)

Finally, we have to talk about infimums and supremums in mathematics.

Suppose you have a set that has, I don't know, all the positive numbers that are even and below 100, these would be:

2, 4, 6...96, 98

So in this set, you can create a new subset, composed of numbers multiple of 4. And you have this new set:

4, 8, 12...92, 96.

So in this set, the infimum is the lowest value (4), and the supremum is the highest value (96)

What Landau found out was that the infimum of the set of all possible values in L_f or B_f were his three constants:

8.66 + (20x10^-14) < B*20 < 9.44

10 < A*20 < 15.706

And our little friend.

10 < L*20 < 10.88

11 is the age I was the first time I menstruated, but then it went away again until like two years later.

11.0001...

No, huh, I kinda like, can't do this this time around, images of 12obin I can't get out of my head, too distracting...

So, instead, I'll go with:

12

It is meaningful because it's the two first digits of the name of the creator of this thread, who menstruated for the first time when E* was 11, but then it went away again until like two years later.

*) E, the ultimate gender neutral pronoun I just made up, not to be confused by Euler's Constant as mentioned by bachaddict.

(I think the 1 is unnecessary, would work the same for me if it was just 2obin:

Or something)

2edundant

### Re: Count by meaningful numbers

(Tru. But I also use twelveobin in other places. Which I like better than twoobin.)

This is e

It's interesting because if one plots a graph of x^y=y^x, for non-negative real values of x and y, two lines will appear. A straight line where x=y, and a curved line passing through points such as (4,2) and (2,4). The two lines cross at the point (e,e).

15.284473071784413259813974625

This is the Landau–Ramanujan constant (multiplied by 20)

Suppose you have a big number, called x. They found out that there's a number of integers less than x which are the sum of two square numbers.

The number of integers can be found by the formula:

x divided by square root of natural logarithm of x.

The constant appears when you define N(x) as the number of positive integers less than x that are the sum of two squares. Then you see what you get when you plug it into the formula:

(N(x) multiplied by square root of natural logarithm of x) divided by x

And see its limit as x approaches infinity.

You get:

15.284473071784413259813974625 divided by 20.

This is meaningful because what this means is, if you want to know how many integers there are below some number n that are the sum of two squares, all you need to do is multiply your number by 15.284473071784413259813974625 and divide by 20, and you'll get an approximation (the approximation will get better the bigger your number.)

16.

2^4

4^2. very cool little property. the only value where i can get it two different ways with x^y and x != y.
