I retired in 2006 and bought Mathematica and a stack of math books with the goal to teach myself to become a world-class mathematician. I am on pace to achieve that goal sometime shortly after the next Ice Age.

I consider myself a Mathematical Mutt (no papers) who occasionally ventures off the back porch to play in the yard with the big dogs.

I donate regularly to the The OEIS Foundation.

When I look at the patterns, I can hear the wheels turning. When I look at the math, I find out the hamsters have died.

@belisarius, I have posted the image. It's close to what we should get.

@belisarius, When triangle 1-2-3 is graphed we get a triangle with uniform edges. If we make the edges equal to the differences, the triangle loses its shape and becomes a straight line 1-2-3 with an edge back from 3-1.
