More on NERDY Numbers:

I took some heat about using the word "NERDY".

I am a Nerd and I'm proud of it. Geeks are a different story. My understanding of the difference between a Nerd and a Geek has to do with expertise. A Nerd know his/her stuff. They are experts. They have skills. Geeks however are not experts. They like to talk like a Nerd, but you can always tell the difference when you listen to what they are saying. So I don't think the term "Nerd" is an insult in any way.

I reserve the right to call this category of number by any name I please. There is a law in math and science that discoveries are never named after the people that discovered them. I forget the name of the law, but remember - the person they named it after did not discover this law. I did not discover this class of numbers. I did not find any name for them in my research. So I reserve the right to call them "Mr. B's Super-Dupper-Fantiscic, Magically Mystical and Wonderfully Mathematically Sequence Numbers". Unfortunately, this name has not caught on, but I think "NERDY numbers" will.

Today I want to share some special NERDY
number that do more than just count or multiply. These numbers produce sequences that we have
names for: Like the “Fibonacci Sequence”, and a few other Fibonacci like
sequences including my daughter’s favorite – the “Tridecanacci Sequence”.

I am having some difficulties copying some tables to my blog. Please be patient while I consult my book of mathematical and computer technology prayers.
