Although my publishing cycle at Decoded Science has been delayed by "bespoke" work for other clients, I've carved out some time for another Mathematics article in the series about Prime Numbers: "Four Personalized Prime Number Formulae".

Here I continue my practice of pre-publishing the images that I personally create here in my Blog of Writing, prior to submitting the article to Decoded Science.
"Fermat Numbers" by Mike DeHaan
Merely a spreadsheet with a few Fermat numbers, nonetheless it illustrates a point in the article.

"Pierpont Numbers" by Mike DeHaan
Likewise, may I present a spreadsheet with a selection of Pierpont numbers.

Here is my usual reference to DeHaan Services ("A Tangled Tale of Four Personalized Prime Numbers") and a writing tip.

Writing Tip

Today's writing tip is to remain open to the possibilities when researching and writing your article.

When I began this particular article about prime numbers, I simply wanted to list a few more "personalized" sets of primes. This would balance a prior article, "The Complex Tale of Eisenstein Prime Numbers". Otherwise it would seem that Eisenstein was unique for having some primes named after him.

Instead, I found these four mathematicians were entangled because of their very personalized primes.

Always look for unexpected relationships; in my view, these can make for the most interesting stories.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
