Project Euler Problem Solvers.

Hi All PE Problem Solvers, I have created a "Project Euler Problem Solvers" Google Group. This is group is not for sharing answers, it is for collaboratively solving PE problems.

Re: Problem 656

Fine then, I will wait until 100 solvers have solved the problem. We had a thread on collaborative problem solving a while ago, I do not recall the thread to place a link here. If the admins/moderators are against solvers collaborating on this forum, maybe you need to add another section where peopl...

Re: Problem 656

Instead of posting the partial result on the forum, I probably should have asked someone to verify via PM.

Can I PM someone to verify my result for the 21st term in the sequence given in the example for square_root(31)?

Thanks,
Vamsi

Problem 656

Can someone verify that the 21st value of n which gives a palindromic sub-sequence for alpha = square_root(31) is <removed by moderator> ? The value is too large, otherwise I would have tried to brute-force it somehow. EDIT: I was actually able to brute-force the 21st value of n for which we have a ...

Re: Solving PE problems multiple times.

I created another account and solved 103 of the least difficult PE problems as best as I can in the following languages: Rust, Scala, Kotlin, C#, Swift, C++17. It was a lot of fun. While making my third iteration through PE, I learnt sieving methods and deterministic Miller-rabin the hard way. This ...

Re: Suggest me a book

I have looked at a few of the Elementary Number Theory books available at LibGen. For some like me, just starting out on Number Theory, Burton's 7th edition is a great introduction. I have worked through the first two chapters. I would definitely recommend it to any PE enthusiast. It would have been...

Re: Problem 245

I get the same number both with my naive brute-force and a segmented-sieve brute-force.

Re: Ressources and courses for solving project euler problems

I started solving PE problems about 2 and 1/2 years ago. I am also a programmer, not a mathematician, so I could with my current math skills solve about 365 problems. I feel like I have max'd out and any left over problems are beyond my current skill. So I started looking for ways to improve my skil...

I hope this is not a spoiler, but has anyone solved PE 638 without using <snipped by moderator>? I would be very interested in knowing if there are any alternate solution methods for this problem. My point being, if you have no clue what <snipped by moderator> are, how would you even know to look fo...

Swift Arrays

I am a little bit of a programming languages enthusiast. I try to solve PE problems (same problems multiple times) in different languages to get a feel for the languages. I have used Haskell, C++, Java, Scala, Kotlin, Rust to solve PE problems. My personal experience is that Kotlin and Rust stand ou...

Problem 637

Just want to check my understanding of the problem. Given n = 99999 (base 10), then (assuming this is the shortest path)

99999 (base 10) -> (9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 9) (base 10) = 45 (base 10) -> (4 + 5) (base 10) = 9 (base 10).

So, f(99999, 10) = 2. Am I correct?

Project Euler problem proposal rejects.

This post is directed at the PE Admins. I made about 5 to 10 problem proposals to Project Euler, none of which got accepted so far, which is fine I guess. Others might have submitted problems too that got rejected. So, I was thinking maybe there might be people out there who are interested in taking...

Re: Problem 259

Thanks for your comment. I will know whether my number is correct or not in a few days when I am done implementing my algorithm. In my expression count, two different expressions could possibly result in the same reachable number, so I would expect my number to be higher. EDIT: The number I came up ...

Re: Problem 259

My problem is that I get the solution but it takes nearly 15 minutes. I took some measurements and I am evaluating 3,392,923,553 expressions, about 3,951,693 per second, which actually seems quite fast. I just don't see how it can be done in 1 minute. An approximate calculation for the number of ex...

Is 123456789 a valid reachable number? I am thinking yes, but, just want to confirm.

Thanks.
