comment Particular case of Beal's Conjecture
Thanks. I guess I could now ask the question for exponents (3,4,5), which seems to be the new leading unproven candidate, but don't want to give @quid an ulcer!

@quid The order is important. This case is different:(3,4,3) or equivalently (4,3,3).

@quid Where is it "on the site linked to"? I don't think the Wikipedia page has any conclusion for this case, which is why I asked the question.

yes, you understand it correctly

comment All Integers from the Smallest Digit Stream with a Window Filter
I didn't know about DeBruijin. The answer is therefore yes, and, even more amazing, a contiguous window can always be used. So, that begs the question, can a stream be found for any given window? By your comment, I guess you extended my question to this already. Thanks.

comment All Integers from the Smallest Digit Stream with a Window Filter
This might be confusing because my digits in the example ranged from 1 to 3. It's more normal to use a range from 0 to 2, so subtract one from all digits if that makes it more intuitive.

comment coin reversal puzzle with one hand and two stacks
@Zack In similar words, I want to reverse one LIFO queue (i.e., a stack) using two other LIFO queues, but the reversed data needs to be in the original LIFO queue and the other two queues cannot feed each other directly. I'll give mathematicians a chance first because I think this is quite difficult and perhaps no algorithm is even known.

comment Consecutive Primes mod 3
@quid As Greg said there, that effect goes to zero for large primes, so it wouldn't apply here (I'm looking for effects that stay finite in the asymptotic limit).

comment Consecutive Primes mod 3
Just considering consecutive pairs, has anyone proven that there is no asymptotic correlation? For example, is it impossible to have "21" and "12" each occur with a 30% rate, and "11" and "22" each occur with a 20% rate?

comment Consecutive Primes mod 3
Is Shiu's result based on hypothesis or pure theory? I can't find the reference from Google and want to try to understand if this is proven with no assumptions.
