RSA Cipher

Alice chooses two large prime numbers p and q. She finds their product, m=pq which is public. She also finds n= (p-1)(q-1) which is private. She chooses e which is a number relatively prime to n and finds d= the inverse of e (mod n). The number e is public and the number d is private. When Bob wants to send a message x (a number

Differentiation : Radius of Convergence for Power Series

Consider the differnetial equation y'(x) + xy(x) = 0 with y(0) = 0 Look for a solution of this problem of the form y(x) = A + B + Ce^-x + De^-1/2x^2 Use the fact that y must satisfy the equation and the initial conditions to identify the constants A,B,C and D. By setting u = -x^2/2 in the power series for f(u) = exp{u},

Please see the attached file for full problem description Find ten real numbers in the closed interval [0,1] such that for each value m from 2 to 10, the numbers lie so that there is one of them in each of the open intervals [Note that these conditions for m = 1,2......,10 all have to hold simultaneously for your

Proving that an equality is false.

I have two sets of 64 numbers (1.1 to 7.4). Both number sets are created using the same equation for values of i from 0 to 63. m = 1.1 + ( i * 0.1 ) n = 1.1 + ( i * 0.1 ) I am trying to understand if the following equality is false in all cases except when the terms in each expression are equal (e.g. m^-12 = n^-12 and
