Differences in seed vigor of four genotypes of maize (Zea mays L.), brittle-1 (bt1), shrunken-2 (sh2), sugary (su), and normal, in an isogenic background, were investigated. Excised whole embryos andâ€¦ (More)

We show that the equation Â±ax Â± b = c has at most two solutions (x, y) for given integers a and b both greater than one and c greater than zero, except for listed specific cases. For any prime a > 5â€¦ (More)

Elementary treatment of p a Â± p b + 1 = x Abstract: We give a shorter simpler proof of a result of Szalay on the equation 2 a + 2 b + 1 = x 2. We give an elementary proof of a result of Luca on theâ€¦ (More)

A happy number N is defined by the condition S(N ) = 1 for some number n of iterations of the function S, where S(N ) is the sum of the squares of the digits of N . Up to 10, the longest known stringâ€¦ (More)

Bennett has proven: If a, b, and c are positive integers with a, b â‰¥ 2, then the equation a âˆ’ b = c has at most two solutions in positive integers x and y. Here we generalize this by allowing a, b,â€¦ (More)

We review the past three years of our experience and results from the Villanova PIVOTS Science & Theatre Magic Program, a 3-week academic summer program where students and faculty work with teams ofâ€¦ (More)
