Mathematics is kept alive by the appearance of new, unsolved problems. This book provides a steady supply of easily understood, if not easily solved, problems that can be considered in varying depths by mathematicians at all levels of mathematical maturity. This new edition features lists of references to OEIS, Neal Sloane 's Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences, at the end of several of. A table of binomial coefficients is required to determine the binomial coefficient for any value m and x. Problem Analysis: The binomial coefficient can be recursively calculated as follows – further, That is the binomial coefficient is one when either x is zero or m is zero. The program prints the table of binomial coefficients for.

In mathematics, binomial coefficients are a family of positive integers that occur as coefficients in the binomial theorem. C(n,k) denotes the number of ways of choosing k objects from n different objects. However when n and k are too large, we often save them after modulo operation by a prime number P. The proof is by the method of discrete Taylor series: binomial coefficients are integer-valued polynomials, and conversely, the discrete difference of an integer series is an integer series, so the discrete Taylor series of an integer series generated by a polynomial has integer coefficients (and is a finite series).

In mathematics, a square-free integer (or squarefree integer) is an integer which is divisible by no perfect square other than 1. That is, its prime factorization has exactly one factor for each prime that appears in it. For example, 10 = 2 ⋅ 5 is square-free, but 18 = 2 ⋅ 3 ⋅ 3 is not, because 18 is divisible by 9 = 3 smallest positive square-free numbers are.

Divisors of binomial coefficients: Geometric distribution and number of distinct prime divisors are studied. We give a numerical result on a conjecture by Erdôs on square divisors of binomial coefficients. Introduction. In , a method for obtaining the expansion into primes of binomial coefficients was given.

In this way, some problems about binomial coefficients can be examined. Geometric Distribution of Prime Divisors of Binomial Coefficients. To get an idea about the distribution of prime divisors of binomial coefficients, for a given n, we draw a graph with p- and k-axes: For each p (prime) and each k, (p, k) is plotted if and only if p divides (k).

Figure 1 shows the pattern for n = On prime divisors of the binomial coefficient. ON THE NUMBER OF PRIME DIVISORS OF A BINOMIAL COEFFICIENT ERNST S. SELMER 1. It must have been observed independently by many people that a binomial coefficient (J) can never be a prime power except in the trivial cases with k = 1 or k = n — 1.

Strangely enough, the first proof of this fact was apparently not. Prime power divisors of binomial coefficients By /. Sander at Hannover 1.

It is known that for sufficiently large n and m and any r the binomial coefficient (n m) which is close to the middle coefficient is divisible by p r where p is a ‘large’ prime.

This paper deals with the problems of the upper and lower orders of growth of the ratios of the divisor functions of “adjacent” binomial coefficients, i.e., of the numbers of combinations of the form C n k and C n k+1 or C n k and C n Cited by: 3.

Is () divisible by the square of a prime for all. This problem looked to me much simpler than a divisibility problem that I found on MO (look here), but then again, I guess in number theory, the simpler the problems looks, the harder it usually is.

The nice form. It is quite easy to show that for every prime p and 0 p divides the binomial coefficient (p i); one simply notes that in p.

(p − i). the numerator is divisible by p whereas the denominator is not (since it is a product of numbers smaller than p. We prove that for any integer d multinomial coefficients satisfying some conditions are exactly divisible by p d for many large primes p.

The binomial coefficients are called Central Binomial Coefficients, where is the Floor Function, although the subset of coefficients is sometimes also given this name.

Erdös and Graham (, p. 71) conjectured that the Central Binomial Coefficient is never Squarefree for, and this is sometimes known as the Erdös Squarefree Conjecture. In mathematics, binomial coefficients are a family of positive integers that occur as coefficients in the binomial are indexed by two nonnegative integers; the binomial coefficient indexed by n and k is usually written, and it is the coefficient of the x k term in the polynomial expansion of the binomial power (1 + x) ing binomial coefficients into rows for successive.

The distribution of squarefree binomial coefficients. For many years, Paul Erdős has asked intriguing questions concerning the prime divisors of binomial coefficients, and the powers to which they appear.
