## Latest Activity "Even if X's >= 0,in case it is constant, equal to -c, and X not in [0,2], then c  < -2, and Z ill defined. If X is in [0,2], then  the definition of Z seems plausible.  The point of my comment is that in a seemingly…"
Oct 28, 2019 "May I clarify a couple of points? - is it true that the sequence of 2,000 winning numbers provided above is generated with a seed (a,b) consisting of a pair of positive integers less than 1,000 (after running the dynamics for over 30 million…"
Apr 23, 2019 "I have a question about the statement "Then you known for sure that your next number will be a winning one." If y(0) > 4 x(0) + 2 ( which is larger than 2 x(0) + 1/2), then y(t) > 4 x(t) + 2 for all t, and so x(t) - 256 x(t-8) = 255…"
Apr 19, 2019 "From the public algorithm, the transition from x(t) to x(t+1) has 2 cases (one when 4x + 1 < 2y, and the other when not), so either x(t+1) = 2x(t) + 0, or x(t+1) = 2x(1) + 1."
Apr 17, 2019 "Hi Vincent. As often, your abstraction from numerical experiments is correct. We have x(t+1) = 2 x(t) + r(t), with r(t)=0 or 1 depending on y(t), therefore: x(t+8) = 2^8 x(t) + [2^7 r(t) + 2^6 r(t+1) + ...+ r(t+7)]. From here, x(t+8) - 256 x(t) is…"
Apr 16, 2019 "If the value of the winning numbers are of the form x(t) - 256 x(t-8) for some suitable iteration t, how is it that the result is a number between 0 and 255? Are these integers or integers mod 256? "

I read your answer very quickly, not sure if you answered it positively (meaning I was right) or negatively (meaning I was wrong.) Either way, it is a great answer, and I will check with my business partner if we can offer you the award for your answer. We are getting more and more contributions from smart FinTech people, I also invite you to download my new book Applied Stochastic Processes, Chaos Modeling, and Probabilistic Properties of Numeration Systems, available at https://www.datasciencecentral.com/profiles/blogs/fee-book-applied-stochastic-processes

Thank you for taking time looking into this problem.

Best regards,
