This site map covers content present at www.vincico.com regarding elementary number theory. The working title of this segment of the Vinci LLC website is the “Transdecimal Observatory”, dedicated to the study of the mechanics of number bases, especially those larger than decimal. The superior highly composite numbers, primorials, and the range of integers 2 < r <= 120 are of greatest interest. The relationship between digits of r, any n such that 0 < n <= r (where 0 is used to signify congruence with r) is of great interest. Composition of r and n, their relationship, and the number-theoretical aspects of n as it relates to practical applications of some base r are the subject of study. The “lingua franca” number base used in the Observatory is pure sexagesimal, as it is a five-smooth superior highly composite number. Pure sexagesimal is expressed using Michael De Vlieger’s “argam” numerals. Other commonly used bases are 12, 120, 360, and 2520, the last of these expressed as a mixed radix, base 42 on base 60.
Currently the Transdecimal Observatory contains PDF versions of work and is limited to this format. The Observatory is a work in progress. Visit again soon!
