On Mathematics - Kind request for double checkers


I hesitated tagging this under "Weird Stuff" (as it's a sort of weird request) or "Current Events / Science + Technology" but I figured it wouldn't be quite specific enough re: the former or quite faithful enough for the latter (as there's no real "current event" beyond my request proper).

I was wondering, and am looking for, if there are any active mathematicians in the Liberty defenders who use dear Michael's Daily Paul.

As a software engineer, I do have some significant maths remnants, but I'd love to hear from profiles who are much more current than I am with the field, e.g., making a living out of it in engineering or conventional academia (pure research or teaching). Thus, I'm looking for someone competent who'd kindly give me a "helping hand" (i.e., brain ;) to double check some recent curiosities(?) of mine - that I stumbled upon as part of my hobby researches.

The more precise, specific sub-field at hands is generally referred to as "Number Theory". Especially re: prime numbers and the various results surrounding the prime counting function, the prime number theorem, the Bertrand's postulate (actually a theorem), Goldbach's conjecture, etc.

If you do have such a specialization - or active, fairly frequent practice as part of other works, which may or may not involve cryptography, btw, no requirement there - I'd love to hear from you if you're interested in looking for errors / needs for improvements in my, say, last speculations (there's at least one of those, for sure).

(And Thank you in advance for your own curiosity, then :)



Oh, and why such a request on the DP and not any random online math forums ? Well, isn't it obvious ? My rationale is as simple as this, of course : if there are indeed competent persons around here to voluntarily help me, then I can afford a much better a priori to have about them re: both their intellectual honesty and morality, rather than going "in the wild" for this sort of activity and domain of interest. Also, said candidly, they'd feel somehow less "strangers" to me (and reciprocally, I assume :)

Thus linked below, a publicly disclosed binary "stamp" which I generated from unique data of (so far) undisclosed personal info — in two steps**, and which can be used to resolve discovery disputes (if any); its usage protocol to be communicated later over a secure channel (e.g., postal mail or etc.) :

I have some results in that

I have some results in that area going back 20 years that I've never published. I'd hate to check your stuff and get it mixed with mine though - but just wanted to say hi, and you're not the only one on the forums.

Thank you for the encouragement. May I send you just one formula

Thank you for the encouragement.

May I send you just one formula out of the bunch I have (and I haven't seen anywhere else so far, but I might have missed, granted) along with a starting clue on how to get at it ?

Then you feel free to let me know about your first impression if it's worth pursuing or not. Maybe ?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
