 Tommy's conjecture : every positive integer is the sum of at most 8 pentatope numbers tommy1729 Ultimate Fellow Posts: 1,491 Threads: 355 Joined: Feb 2009 08/17/2014, 09:01 PM (This post was last modified: 03/29/2015, 07:08 PM by tommy1729.) NUMBER THEORY : Tommy's conjecture : every positive integer is the sum of at most 8 pentatope numbers. For those unfamiliar with " pentatope numbers " : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentatope_number This is a natural generalization of Fermat's polygonal number theorem , Pollock's tetrahedral numbers conjecture and Pollock's octahedral numbers conjecture. There exist stronger versions of this conjecture such that Fermat and Pollock's ideas are included. But the pentatope numbers are key in how to generalize correctly. Im not aware of an example that requires more then 7 pentatope numbers , then again I have not used a computer nor paper and I did not really search hard. Or maybe I forgot about that example , it has been many years since I considered this for the first time. regards tommy1729 « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
