I'm a lecturer in statistics at Berkeley. I earned my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania, working in combinatorics and probability. In particular I'm interested in what large random structures look like. I think generating functions are awesome, which is probably pretty clearly reflected in the questions I answer.

comment Numbers with all N-digit prefixes divisible by N
I like this heuristic, but it seems to miss some essential feature of the problem - the number of good orders for all the bases looked at is less than $n - 1$.

comment Distribution of digits of $pq$-adic idempotents (aka “automorphic numbers”)
Out of curiosity, since you have the code to do this: does the distribution appear to be uniform for some of the other all small cases, when, say, pq = 6, or 14, or 15?

comment Sequences with integral means
I would just like to confirm that I've calculated this sequence and got the same result.
