# Topic: Divisor

 The Prime Glossary: divisor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) The divisors (or factors) of a positive integer are the integers that evenly divide it. The proper divisors of 27 are 1, 3 and 9. There is another use of the word divisor: when we divide an integer a by a non-zero integer b, to get a quotient and remainder (see the division algorithm), b is the divisor and a is the dividend. primes.utm.edu /glossary/page.php?sort=Divisor   (160 words)

 Greatest common divisor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In mathematics, the greatest common divisor (gcd), sometimes known as the greatest common factor (gcf) or highest common factor (hcf) of two integers which are not both zero is the largest integer that divides both numbers. The greatest common divisor is useful for reducing vulgar fractions to be in lowest terms. If d is a common divisor of a and b, and every common divisor of a and b divides d, then d is called a greatest common divisor of a and b. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Greatest_common_divisor   (764 words)

 Divisor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) In mathematics, a divisor of an integer n, also called a factor of n, is an integer which evenly divides n without leaving a remainder. The positive divisors of 42 are {1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42}. Divisors are a generalization of subvarieties of algebraic varieties; two different generalizations are in common use, Cartier divisors and Weil divisors. www.theezine.net /d/divisor.html   (587 words)

 Harmonic divisor number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A harmonic divisor number, or Ore number, is a number whose divisors, averaged in a harmonic mean, results in an integer. Three of these listed are also perfect numbers, and like perfect numbers, harmonic divisor numbers tend to be even numbers, at least in the range observed. For example, 496 is a harmonic divisor number because 10, its number of divisors, divided by the sum of the reciprocals of its divisors, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, 248 and 496, (the harmonic mean), yields an integer, 5 in this case. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Harmonic_divisor_number   (160 words)

 Greatest common divisor In mathematics, the greatest common divisor (abbreviated GCD), or highest common factor (HCF) of two integers which are not both zero is the largest integer that divides both numbers. The greatest common divisor of a and b (not both zero) may be defined alternatively and equivalently as follows: it is the smallest positive integer d which can be written in the form ap+bq where p and q are integers. If c is a common divisor of a and b, and every common divisor of a and b divides c, then c is called a greatest common divisor of a and b. www.wordlookup.net /gr/greatest-common-divisor.html   (655 words)

 PlanetMath: divisor This is version 3 of divisor, born on 2001-12-12, modified 2002-09-23. The definition of (Weil) Divisor seems a bit too specialized here, at least from an algebraic geometer's point of view. I think the more general definition of a divisor as an element of the free abelian group generated by the prime divisors would be preferable here (a la Hartshorne). planetmath.org /encyclopedia/DivisorOnACurve.html   (96 words)

 Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math Repeat the process using the divisor as the new dividend and the remainder as the new divisor: 198 = 3*54 + 36 54 = 1*36 + 18 36 = 2*18 + 0 When we get 0 as the remainder, the last divisor, here 18, is the GCF of the given integers. This shows that any common divisor of the first two numbers must also divide the last divisor, by working down the chain of equations one at a time. This shows that any factor of the last divisor, including that last divisor itself, also divides both of the first numbers, by working up the chain of equations one step at a time. mathforum.org /library/drmath/view/51897.html   (438 words)

 The Anti-Divisor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) The anti-divisor, or unbiased non-divisor, is a concept related very closely to the concept of prime numbers, and the concept of a divisor. A divisor is a combination of these factors, for example 63 has the divisors 1,3,7,9,21 and 63, as 63 divided by any of these numbers yields an integer. It logically follows from this that any number that is not a divisor of an integer is a non-divisor. www.users.globalnet.co.uk /~perry/maths/antidivisor.htm   (804 words)

 "Golden" mirror-symmetrical digit-to-analog converter (DAC) It is well known that the resistive divisors with the "binary" ratios are the basis of design of the classical "binary" DAC.

 Divisors Given a function field F/k and a divisor D belonging to F/k, return a vector space V and a k-linear mapping h: V longrightarrow F such that V is isomorphic to the Riemann-Roch space (L)(D) subset F under h. Return the complementary divisor D^# of D. The function field F/k of D must be a finite extension of a rational function field k(x). The group of divisor classes is isomorphic to the product of a copy of Z and the group of divisors classes of degree zero which is a finite abelian group. www.math.niu.edu /help/math/magmahelp/text710.html   (2569 words)

 Two properties of Greatest Common Divisor Greatest Common Divisor is one of the best known arithmetic notions. In other words, r, an integer smaller than g, would also be representable as a linear combination of a and b which would contradict our assumption that g is the least such integer. Note that as + bt = gcd(a,b) implies that any common divisor of a and b also divide gcd(a,b). www.cut-the-knot.org /Generalization/gcd.shtml   (330 words)

 The Anti-Divisor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) any number not a divisor or an anti-divisor, is called a k-biased divisor. A k-biased divisor is offset around a number by k.

 Divisors Testing equality of divisors is often made simpler by having a ``normal form'' for divisors. A divisor \$D\$ is principal iff \$L(D)\$ has dimension one, and the zero locus of its generator is the empty set. We wish to compute homomorphisms from the canonical module into \$S_X\$, and take the divisor whose first ideal is the image of a homomorphism of non-negative degree, and whose second ideal is an arbitrary nonzero element of \$S_X\$ whose degree is equal to the degree of the homomorphism. www.math.umn.edu /systems_guide/Macaulay2/html/0585.html   (2642 words)

 Computing primes (jun 99) I'm establishing a lexical local variable for this loop, initializing it to 2, and incrementing it by one until it hits 10,000. After the prime number '2', there are no further prime numbers that are even, and there is also no reason to try any divisors that are even. Similarly, the inner loop tries all odd numbers starting with 3 as potential divisors, but still stopping when the square of the divisor exceeds the candidate prime. www.stonehenge.com /merlyn/UnixReview/col26.html   (1473 words)

 Dogs of the Dow - Dow Divisor To keep historical continuity and allow for a comparison to be made to past Dow values, the editors of the Wall Street Journal modify the index with a Dow divisor. The Dow divisor is simply a number which takes stock splits and other market changes into account. So in order to calculate the current value of the Dow, one must add up the stock prices of each of the 30 Dow components and divide by 30 and then divide by the Dow divisor. www.dogsofthedow.com /Dow_Divisor.htm   (230 words)

 Example: Testing for Primality Since ancient times, mathematicians have been fascinated by problems concerning prime numbers, and many people have worked on the problem of determining ways to test if numbers are prime. One way to test if a number is prime is to find the number's divisors. This means that the algorithm need only test divisors between 1 and mitpress.mit.edu /sicp/chapter1/node17.html   (1830 words)

 HW#2 Greatest Common Divisor System Design   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) Assuming we have 4 pairs of unsigned numbers stored in 8 memory cells(addressed 0-7), upon system_start signal, the GCD system compute the greatest common divisor for each pair of the numbers and store the result back into the second cell. After all 4 pairs are calculated, the system_done signal are raised high to imform that the computation is done.(just for practice.) The 3-bit address are connected to the memory which will decode the address to select a memory cell, and when Q0, Q1 Q2 are high, addr_full will be raised high and fed to the control unit. www.ee.pdx.edu /~xiang/ee510vh/code/report/prj2rep.html   (432 words)

 Determining the Actual Sample Rate of an Acquisition in NI-DAQmx - KnowledgeBase - Support - National Instruments The SamplClk.TimebaseDiv property provides the divisor used to divide down one of the timebase frequencies to achieve your desired sample clock rate. For example lets assume the divisor is a 16 bit integer. This allows the 20 MHz timebase to be used for all frequencies above 305.18 Hz because a 16-bit integer can yield a divisor of 65,535. digital.ni.com /public.nsf/allkb/4BBE1409700F6CE686256E9200652F6B   (232 words)

 Finding All Prime Factors of a Positive Integer In the above, if Divisor cannot evenly divide Input or Input is 1, we exit the loop. The former condition states that Divisor is not a factor of Input, while the latter means Input is 1 and does not have any other factor. Since 2 is the only even prime number, we'd better remove all factors of 2 before starting any other work. www.cs.mtu.edu /~shene/COURSES/cs201/NOTES/chap04/factor.html   (1015 words)
