Experimental Mathematics Seminar

Coordination Sequences, Planing Numbers, and Other Recent Sequences 

 Neil Sloane, The OEIS Foundation and Rutgers University 

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 15 November 2018 at 5:00PM - 5:48PM

Abstract:   Take a periodic tiling of the plane and consider its associated graph. The coordination sequence with respect to a node P gives the number of nodes that are n edges away from P. Chaim Goodman-Strauss and I have a new and simple method for obtaining generating functions for such sequences, which will be illustrated with several examples. There are a number of interesting open questions. I will also discuss Lenormand's operation that planes down numbers (e.g., 231 becomes 27).
