Searching many formulas to one limit
 
Hi guys!
This is formula for nth r-gonal pyramidal number
[TEX]P_n^r= \frac{3n^2 + n^3(r-2) - n(r-5)}{6}[/TEX]
I have , for example 2<r<1000.
And i want to search all this numbers to one constant border(for example 10[SUP]15[/SUP])
How i can find such n's in C++?
Pre-thanks

And i forget about searching from some minimal border.
How to find n[SUB]min[/SUB] without computing previous [TEX]P_n^r[/TEX]?
Pre-thx

What exactly are you searching for?

Im searching for numbers that n-gonal pyramidal number and n-angular number. Cannonball problem for different bases

For a given r, an r-gonal number is of the form

[tex]p_r^{n} \;=\; n((r-2)*n-(r-4))/2[/tex]

Multiplying by 1/2*(r - 2) and adding 1/16*r^2 - 1/2*r + 1 gives a square y^2.

(Note that when r = 4 you multiply by 1 and add 0).

Thus, for a given r you can write

[tex](r - 2)P_r^{n}/2 \; + \; \frac{r^{2}}{16}\;-\;\frac{r}{2}\;+\;1\;=\;y^{2}[/tex]

where the P is the n[sup]th[/sup] r-pyramidal number, which is cubic in n. For any given r, this is an elliptic curve. This gives a mighty bludgeon to use on the problem.

For r = 4, there are elementary proofs that n = 70 is the only n > 1 giving a square value for the cannonball problem.
