Natural numbers show "Stretching Similarity"!

Well we think that we have found a nice property of natural numbers which we are unable to explain in all details. So we published it without having any idea why it holds true. You can look at Figure 4 and related description given in the following paper:

If you find any hint, let me know in the comments.

Cheers :)

This is pretty awesome. It's going to take me a while to digest this paper. I don't normally study network theory, but I'm beginning to see how this sort of thing could be of value in some other branches of theoretical physics. Do I have any hint as to why this property of numbers seems to be true? You're kidding, right? I'll get back to you on that.

Sure.. contrary to my expectations, nobody thought that this was an interesting note! :D

Snehal, there's a difference between "not being interested", and "being glassy-eyed". It's a difficult read! It will take ME quite some time to grasp the subject.
