Weekend Wiki Party 3 - Number Theory

Thanks to all of our previous wiki contiributors!

For the last two weeks, we've had a "Weekend Wiki Party" and asked if anyone would be willing to help develop the wikis on Brilliant. We've had great results and have added many pages of content to the wiki. Over 1000 people have benefited from these pages already!

Since there's still some areas of the wiki that need further development, we thought we'd ask again for your help and contributions. This week's theme: NUMBER THEORY.

Our goal this weekend is to fill out and improve some of our Number Theory wikis. With everyone’s help, we can make these pages something that the community is proud of. To participate, feel free to jump in and write something helpful on one of the following (currently empty) pages:

If you'd rather improve an existing page, the following pages would benefit from additional explanation and more examples:

When you have made an edit that you are proud of, please make a comment and let us know!

Write a comment or ask a question...: please anytime i type an answer to a question, it always show " THIS FIELD IS REQUIRED" . So what does it means and what should i do about it? Benjamin Ononogbu · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Benjamin Ononogbu Can you send me a screenshot so that I can understand what is happening? Also let me know if you're using a desktop / mobile / app, and what version / OS you are on. Thanks.

It seems like your entries are not being recorded by the system, which is why it thinks the answer field is empty hence produces the error message of "This field is required." Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 9 months ago

Here is a long wiki on Propositional Calculus Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Agnishom Chattopadhyay This is similar to mathematical deduction ,isn't it? Gautam Sharma · 1 year, 9 months ago

Log in to reply

@Gautam Sharma In a way. But note that there are also other derivation systems. E.g, Predicate Logic Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 1 year, 9 months ago

Where is my comment ?Has any mod deleted it? Anyways @Calvin Lin I have contributed Converting to diff bases Gautam Sharma · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Gautam Sharma Thanks! This is a good start. I like the algorithms given, and I think that it could be supported with a general example.

It could use some proofreading by the community. E.g. In the second example, it should be \( 1.4_8 \) instead of \( 1.8_8 \).

Something useful to add would be to explain how to go from base 2 to base 8 (and vice versa) without going to base 10. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Calvin Lin Actually i m going to add more topics and explanations so it is not yet complete.I am thinking of some shortcuts,BDC, Infinite representations, and may be little negative base explanation. Thanks for spotting typo. Gautam Sharma · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Gautam Sharma Thanks for your contribution to the wiki.

I had deleted your comment because I did not think it is the right place to ask about reports. Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 1 year, 10 months ago

Sir , has this note become a sticky note or something ? It's always there in my feed .

It's not that I don't want it to be there , in fact this is a great addition to Brilliant arsenal of features !

I like this sticky note feature :) Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Azhaghu Roopesh M Yes, this is a sticky note for those in Number Theory level 3+, till Monday (or so). Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

Sir shouldn't it be "Party" instead of "Part" in the name of this Note ?

Sorry sir , this time I won't be able to help out owing to my JEE Mains exams on the 4th of April . I'll surely help out after that . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 10 months ago

Good luck with your exams! Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago
