Kaprekar Series

Ha! Finally I published the pages I had created on the Kaprekar routine/series/numbers; also made the code/software for Kaprekar series generation available for public download. Check it out at Kaprekar Series Generator.

Graphs in Playing with Numbers

Before plotting the graphs in the Playing with Numbers and before even gathering the data required for them, I listed out some of the possible graphs that I could plot. Some of these graphs did show up in that article. Some are yet to be plotted and some I did plot, but didn't like the output.

Here's the list:

1. Plot Number of patterns (y-axis) against #digits (x-axis).
2. # of series of apttern size (y-axis) against #digits (x-axis) - a graph for each pattern size plotted in the same sheet.
3. Max number of iterations (y-axis) against #digits (x-axis).
4. # of numbers (y-axis) against #digits (x-axis) with a graph for each #iterations in the same sheet.
5. For a given #digits #numbers (y-axis) against series (x-axis).
6. For a given #digits Series (y-axis) against number (x-axis).
7. For a given number iteration number (y-axis) against number at a given iteration (x-axis).
8. For a given number, over iterations, min number (y-axis) against max number (x-axis). [and various other combinations].

Bread Crumb Trail.

I've been thinking of adding a Bread crumb trail on the site. Still debating if this trail should be dynamic (i.e. a true trail of the pages that the user accessed) or a static one (hard-coded on the page itself).
