Connecting the Digital Root and Trigg Operator

Panel H: Academic Building HC 110

Abstract: The purpose of this talk will be to look into the digital root of a number and the Trigg Operator and to explore any connections between the two. The Trigg Operator being the operation on the four-digit positive integer, n, where n=abcd and a≥b≥c≥d with a and d not equal, defined as T(n)=badc-cdab. While the digital root of a number, denoted as dr(n), is the process of repeatedly adding the digits of a number and the resulting sum, until the sum is a single digit. We will use different topics in Number Theory and Abstract Algebra to better understand how these two topics and their relationship.
