Begining in its fourth year, each calf produces one calf at the begining of each year. How many cows are there altogether after, for example, 17 years? While you are working on that, let us give you a musical demonstration.

Slide26:  Archimedes cattle problem Archimedes :  Archimedes The cattle problem of Archimedes asks to determine the size of the herd of the God Sun. This problem amounts to find two integers x and y such that the square of x minus a suitable multiple of the square of y is 1 x2 - 410 286 423 278 424 y2 =1 Archimedes cattle problem :  Archimedes cattle problem There are infinitely many solutions. The smallest one has x with 206 545 digits. This problem was almost solved by a german mathematician, A. Amthor, in 1880, who commented: «  Assume that the size of each animal is less than the size of the smallest bacteria. Take a sphere of the same diameter as the size of the milked way, which the light takes ten thousand years to cross. Then this sphere would contain only a tiny proportion of the herd of the God Sun. » Number of atoms in the known finite universe :  Number of atoms in the known finite universe When I was young: 1060 atoms A few years later (long back): 1070 Nowadays: ?

The Da Vinci Code Five enigmas to be solved :  The Da Vinci Code Five enigmas to be solved 1 The first enigma asks for putting in the right order the integers of the sequence 1 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 1 - 1 - 1 - 8 - 5. This reordering will provide the key of the bank account. 2 An english anagram O DRACONIAN DEVIL, OH LAME SAINT 3 A french anagram SA CROIX GRAVE L’HEURE In the book written by Dan Brown in 2003 one finds some (weak) crypto techniques.

Answer for 5: SOPHIA (Sophie Neveu) The Da Vinci Code the bank account key involving eight numbers:  The Da Vinci Code the bank account key involving eight numbers These are the eight first integers of the Fibonacci sequence. The goal is to find the right order at the first attempt. The right answer is given by selecting the natural ordering: 1 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 8 - 1 3 - 2 1 The total number of solutions is 20 160 The eight numbers of the key of the bank account are: 1 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 1 - 1 - 1 - 8 - 5 Primitive languages:  Primitive languages With 3 letters a,b,c : select the first letter (3 choices), once it is selected, complete with the 2 words involving the 2 remaining letters. Hence the number of words is 3 ·2 ·1=6, namely abc, acb, bac, bca, cab, cba. Given some letters, how many words does one obtain if one uses each letter exactly once? With 1 letter a, there is just one word: a. With 2 letters a,b, there are 2 words, namely ab, ba. Slide42:  Three letters: a, b, c Six words 3 ·2 ·1=6 abc acb bac bca cab cba 3 2 1 First letter Second Third Word Slide43:  a b c d b c a c d a b d a b c d c d b d b c c d a d b d a d a b b c a c a b a c d c d b c b d c d a c a d b d a b a c b c a b a abcd abdc acbd acdb adbc adcb bacd badc bcad bcda bdac bdca cabd cadb cbad cbda cdab cdba dabc dacb dbac dbca dcab dcba Four letters: a, b, c, d The sequence 1 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 1 - 1 - 1 - 8 - 5:  The sequence 1 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 1 - 1 - 1 - 8 - 5 In the same way, with 8 letters, the number of words is 8· 7 ·6 ·5 ·4 ·3 ·2 ·1= 40 320. Here the digit 1 occurs twice, this is why the number of orderings is only half: 20 160 The Da Vinci Code:  The Da Vinci Code 2 An english anagram DRACONIAN DEVIL, OH LAME SAINT THE MONA LISA LEONARDO DA VINCI 3 A french anagram SA CROIX GRAVE L’HEURE LA VIERGE AUX ROCHERS The Da Vinci Code (continued):  The Da Vinci Code (continued) dans un vieux mot de sagesse est la clé qui réunit sa famille éclatée la tête bénie par les Templiers avec Atbash vous sera révélée 4 A french poem to decode: élc al tse essegasedtom xueiv nu snad eétalcé ellimaf as tinuér iuq sreilpmet sel rap éinéb etêt al eélévér ares suov hsabta ceva « utiliser un miroir pour déchiffrer le code » « use a mirror for decoding» Exponential sequence :  Exponential sequence Second month Third month Fourth month Number of pairs: 1, 2, 4, 8, … Number of Fibonacci rabbits after 60 months: 1 548 008 755 920 (13 digits):  Number of Fibonacci rabbits after 60 months: 1 548 008 755 920 (13 digits) Beetle larvas Bacteria Economy Exponential growth Number of pairs of mice after 60 months: 1 152 921 504 606 846 976 (19 digits) Size of Narayana’s herd after 60 years: 11 990 037 126 (11 digits) How many ancesters do we have? :  How many ancesters do we have?
