Numbers whose powers are almost integers

Here's a question that just occurred to me. I suspect that a complete answer might be difficult, but maybe I'm wrong!

Consider the powers of the golden ratio Ο = (1+sqrt(5))/2:

Ο^1 = 1.618

Ο^2 = 2.618

...

Ο^8 = 46.979

Ο^9 = 76.013

...

Ο^15 = 1364.0007

Ο^16 = 2206.9996

As the power n increases, Ο^n gets closer and closer to an integer value.

The same thing is true for various other numbers. For example, if a = 1+sqrt(3) then:

a^1 = 2.73

a^2 = 7.46

...

a^8 = 3103.92

a^9 = 8480.06

...

a^15 = 3526400.009

a^16 = 9634303.993

In both cases the reason is the same. Define the conjugate of Ο to be Ο* = (1-sqrt(5))/2, and the conjugate of a to be a* = 1-sqrt(3). Then it can be shown that Ο^n + (Ο*)^n is always an integer, and similarly a^n + (a*)^n is always an integer. Since |Ο*| < 1 and |a*| < 1, this means that Ο^n and a^n get closer and closer to integer values as n increases.

This argument works for any quadratic integer whose conjugate has absolute value less than 1.

Question: Besides such quadratic integers, are there any other non-integers |a| > 1 such that |a^n - Z| -> 0 as n -> infinity? If so, what are they?

This 96-byte program parses a string to an integer, beat it!

It can be very nicely ran and visualised at Brainfuck (minond.xyz) , which automatically null-terminates the input.

The actual conversion is done in ~60 bytes, there is extra code for input and cleanup. The program uses N+3 cells (0 to N+2), where N is the length of the input string, including the null terminator. Even though I learnt brainfuck yesterday, I am pretty proud of this one and I want to know if it can be improved.

Now, these are the requirements:

• The program accepts an arbitrarily long null-terminated ASCII string of digits (base 10) and leaves the converted unsigned integer, together with the pointer, at the first cell. Also make sure to clean up all used cells to 0.
• No error handling has to be done, you can assume that the input string is always a null-terminated string of characters 0-9, otherwise the behaviour can be undefined.
• It can be assumed that there is no cell size limit.

If there are changes that don't satisfy the requirements but improve the program significantly, feel free to also submit those (but mention it).

If someone is interested in an explanation for my program, I can try my best to explain it in the comments.

Extract integer from string

I need to extract a number from a string of text and turn it into an integer, but can't figure out a way to do this with numbers higher than 9.

My current code grabs the char at position 4 of the string text:

char stringNum = text.charAt(3);


and converts it from a char to an int:

 int num = stringNum - '0';


I check if the text sent is a command, and commands always look like this: /<COMMAND> <SPACE> <NUMBER> so for example /m 2, so I can always expect the number to be at position 3 ( zero indexing ) of the string, but since numbers higher than 9 take up 2 chars, I can't figure out how to do this.

Any help appriciated!

EDIT: I've found a solution!

I store both the numbers apart in a char:

char numA = testString.charAt(3);
char numB = testString.charAt(4);


then make that into a string charNum:

charNum += numA;
charNum += numB;


then, lastly, I use the toInt() function to convert that string into an integer:

num = charNum.toInt();

Are there rational non-integer roots to integer numbers?

So, I'm sure there must be, right? Whenever people talk about non-transcendental irrational numbers, they talk about the square-root of 2. sqrt(2) is far and away not the only non-transcendental irrational number, I know that. But, are there rational numbers that are not integers but are the solution of an integer root being taken of an integer number?

So, like, sqrt(4) = 2, which is an integer, so that doesn't fit.

sqrt(1/4) = 1/2, but the number we're taking the root of isn't an integer, so that's not an example either.

So, my question boils down to, I suppose, this formula:

n^^th root of m = p/q

where n, m, p, and q are integers greater than 0 (n, m, and q must be greater than 1) and p is not a multiple of q.

I know enough about math just about to know to ask this question, but not enough to know any proofs or examples to answer it. And looking it up online, I keep getting results for the rational root theorem or people just asking what rational non-integer numbers are.

For positive integers, are there always n-tuples where, if you take all of them and raise them to the power of n and them sum, you get another power of n? [Probably very hard math]

Let's start with Pythagoras's Theorem. There are an infinite number of triples satisfying a^(2)+b^(2)=c^(2), among them 3^(2)+4^(2)=5^(2) and 5^(2)+12^(2)=13^(2).

There are also solutions to a^(3)+b^(3)+c^(3)=d^(3), such as 3^(3)+4^(3)+5^(3)=6^(3) and 3^(3)+10^(3)+18^(3)=19^(3). I suspect, but haven't had the time to yet try to prove, that there are an infinite number of such triples.

I have been unable to find any integer solutions to a^(4)+b^(4)+c^(4)+d^(4)=e^(4) where e is smaller than 250. My strategy has been a very complicated excel spreadsheet, however, because I don't know enough coding, and I know enough about diophantine equations to know that even the smallest solution can be absolutely massive. That said, the other cases I've looked at seem to have noticeably smaller solutions.

I have been able to find a solution to the degree 5 case, which is 19^(5)+43^(5)+46^(5)+47^(5)+67^(5)=72^(5), but frankly I was using an obscenely large spreadsheet by that point.

Does this continue? Is there always a solution to [;\Sigma_{i=1}^{n}a_{i}^{n}=b^{n};] for [;a_{i},b\in\mathbb{N};]? Do I need to restrict it to prime powers as I suspect I might? Is this all just a weird artefact of only looking at relatively small numbers, and the pattern breaks down eventually? If so, where?

Why does health or mana have to have non-negative real numbers / integers as values? Some more exotic choices...

The most obvious choice would be to allow negative amounts of health or mana. Negative health might have something to do with undeath, a weird perverse state of being where healing potions bring you closer to death (defined as zero health) and damage from enemies makes you stronger. Maybe a world with living and undead beings side by side, with a matter-antimatter sort of relationship - the undead can harm the undead by attacking, the living can harm the living, but perversely, when either tries to attack the other, they heal instead.

More weirdly, you might try using values in a cyclic group - the most obvious choice being the circle group - which for non-mathy people is "pretend that 0=1 and the number line rolls up into a circle". Then full health = no health (i.e. death), and healing too much would actually damage you - but if an enemy tried some sort of overkill attack, it would actually heal you instead by wrapping your health around "below zero" to a high number close to 1! This could be the outcome of an eldritch ritual that makes you a creature beyond standard laws of nature.

Another choice would be a two-dimensional health bar. (Health square? Health circle?) The origin, or a small circle centered on it, would be death, and every other point would be a distinct health state. Attacks or healings would be vectors added to your health, with attacks tending to move it closer to origin, and healing tending to move it further away, but by some sort of "life force rotation" mechanic you might shield yourself, diverting an attack and turning it into something that heals you - but of course, your enemies can too. Or, if they can manipulate your life field, an enemy could curse you to take "damage" from a health potion this way. That said, you could "spiral around the drain" indefinitely without actually reaching death at the origin, if you're very careful!

Weirdest of all, perhaps, might be health (note, any of these could apply to mana, currency, or any other value also, of course) that takes values on a tree - such as the free group on two generators. (Set of all expressions with two types of symbols that look like "2a+3b-a+2b" etc.) Reaching zero / death (the empty string) would require going backwards on the tree, retracing every step your health bar has taken all the way to zero, which would require the enemy to know your history - but of course, the same thing goes for damaging them. I can't even imagine how to describe that in terms of worldbuil

Integer subtraction is subtracting wrong amount.

This is for a life expectancy calculator, with several other variables, and every step above this works. It is only this one I believe thatβs giving issues. Not gonna put a ton of code because itβs like 500 lines long, but take my word the rest works.

For females, if age > 60, +4 to it. If weight = 1, -1 from that. If smoke = y, -5 from that. If drink = y, -5 again.

if ((userSex == βfβ) &amp;&amp; (userAge &gt; 60) &amp;&amp; (userWeight == 1) &amp;&amp; (userSmokes == βyβ)  (userDrinks == βyβ)) {
startLifeExpect = (userAge + 4);
startLifeExpect = (startLifeExpect - 5);
}


Not really sure why this is going wrong, because the userSmokes question above this works totally fine and itβs structured the same. I tried added another -5 line under the current one, didnβt work.

In this given line, for input 70, the output should be 63. Its returning 64 instead.

What is it called when I use an integer to describe multiple options?

I have no clue how to describe that search engine friendly. What I am referring to is something I found with permissions on Linux on my workstation and also in one of the old Quake3 server settings. What is that *thing* called, and if it doesn't have a proper name, how would I go about implementing this is pseudocode?

(The examples below got longer than expected so my second question right away here: My guess is that this makes it a lot faster for low level languages to check an 'array of booleans'. Is that assumption correct?)

The *thing*:

Lets say I want to invite my friends to a party after Covid (lets just pretend I had enough friends to make this example (: )

My (imaginary) friends:

(2) Alan
(3) John
(4) Charles
(5) Tim
(6) Donald

If I want my program to send out invites but I am also pretty lazy, I could give it an integer which is the sum of the 2^(number) for all my options. As I understand, I can imagine a byte and simply put a 1 for the peeps I want to hang out with a 0 for the ones I want to avoid:

Ada, Alan and John: [00000111] -> integer: 7 (=1+2+4)
John and Tim: [00010100] -> int: 20 (=4+16)

On linux I saw this being done with permissions:

(1) exec
(2) write

So to give permissions you can use

0 -> nothing
1 -> exec
2 -> write
3 -> exec + write

Trackball "Classic": Setting OPT_SCALE to a non-integer value?

By default, OPT_SCALE is set to 1. I found this a bit slow, so I adjusted it to 2 in my Keymap's config.h file.

However, that's a little too fast. Ideally, I'd want to have a value somewhere between the two.

If I set it to something like 1.5 though, all hell breaks loose. I can scroll up very slowly, but scrolling down causes the active window to jump to the very top.

I've tried debugging the relevant area in trackball.c but I haven't been able to figure out what exactly is happening to cause this. The value being sent to process_wheel_user() is being cast to an int, so it shouldn't care if OPT_SCALE is a double, right? OPT_SCALE doesn't have a type declaration, so I imagine 1.5 should be valid as well.

Any ideas, or has anyone else been able to solve this? I figure ultimately I may need to override process_wheel_user() in my keymap.c to get this kind of functionality, but I wanted to be able to just set OPT_SCALE instead if at all possible as that appears to be what it is meant to do.

Unsure how to find the solution: Creating an integer offset on a random-roll table for DnD

TL;DR: in people terms, trying to find the formula that says βAdd one to the value from the cell above, and if the value is over 100, subtract 100.β

I'm relatively new to the formulas game and I'm afraid I'm just informed enough to be fairly sure this solution is possible, but lacking the knowledge of how to research the right function. There is an ocean of functions and I don't know how to make a targeted search for the single droplet that is this solution.

THE PROBLEM:

My crew and I are building a randomization table for a DnD campaign (a wild magic beer brewing table, for those interested). We want to add an optional offset value to further randomize the table so we don't get used to the values while we roll. Specifically, we want to use the value of one cell to create an offset integer for the rest of the table.

Currently, if the offset integer is zero, the table will be unchanged - the first entry will be 1 and the last will be 100. However, if the offset value is 1, the first entry will be 2 and the last entry will be 101. The function I don't know is this: How do I subtract 100 from values greater than 100, allowing the table to wrap around correctly?

Sure, we could just use our basic mental math to solve for this, but I'm more interested in how to build knowledge of functions.

(Edit 1: added TL;DR) (Edit 2: SOLVED by LpSven3186.)

SOLUTION: If A2 is your starting cell, in A3 put: =IF(A2+1<101,A2+1,(A2+1)-100)

Suppose an event has a probability of success p and we take n observations. Let m be a fixed integer less than n. Show that the limit as n tends to infinity of the probability of having at least m successes in 1.

This basically like "prove that if you keep rolling a 1000-sided die, you'll eventually roll a 1 at least 5 times". This is a stats question and I find it really weird to try to prove, as no matter what you do there is always a possibility that you get fewer than m successes. So I don't see any way of rigorously proving this. I tried using the PMF of the binomial distribution but that didn't lead anywhere. Am I missing something obvious?
