I have a HUGE number, that is random and big. What do I need to study/look at to create a formula that will generate just it?

In summary, the conversation discusses finding an equation to generate a specific large number that has no patterns or known origin. The individual mentions using programs like Matlab or Wolfram Mathematica for curve fitting and manipulating numerical data. They also mention searching for the number within an infinite set of numbers, but there is no guarantee that the number exists in the set. The difficulty of finding future values of equations that generate infinite numbers is also mentioned.

What do you want ?

Make equations and find this number ?

That is what I was looking for to start. I do not want to approximate though, I have fit curves before, but I need and equation that would give the EXACT answer.

To answer some of the others questions, I do not care how it was created and no patterns exist in the number.

I am also talking about numbers that

Honestly, I have this massive number, and I want to search inside an infinite generated number (set?) and find that number inside of it. Now I know that there is nothing to guarantee that my set even exists in this infinite number. If I remember correctly, is it not incredibly difficult to find future values of equations that generate infinite numbers...I thought though some examples exist.

If you have an infinite set of numbers, what makes you think you will find the number you're looking for in a finite amount of time?WebDawg said:Honestly, I have this massive number, and I want to search inside an infinite generated number (set?) and find that number inside of it.

This doesn't make sense. "Infinite number" - are you talking about a set with an infinite number of elements (numbers) in it?WebDawg said:Now I know that there is nothing to guarantee that my set even exists in this infinite number.

Your terminology is off here. There are sequences (a sequence is a type of function) that are defined recursively, but they don't generate "infinite numbers."WebDawg said:If I remember correctly, is it not incredibly difficult to find future values of equations that generate infinite numbers...

As an example:

a

a

This sequence is {1, 2, 3, 4, ...}. IOW, all of the positive integers.

The formula for fitting a very large random number is determined through mathematical analysis and statistical methods. This involves examining the patterns and characteristics of the random number and using mathematical principles to identify a formula that best represents the data.

No, it is not possible for a single formula to accurately fit all large random numbers. Each random number has its own unique characteristics and may require a different formula for a good fit.

The accuracy of a formula for fitting a large random number can be validated through various methods such as comparing the predicted values from the formula to actual values, conducting statistical tests, and using cross-validation techniques.

It depends on the purpose of the analysis. If the goal is to simply describe the data, a formula may not be necessary. However, if the goal is to make predictions or gain a better understanding of the data, a formula can be useful.

There are certain limitations to using a formula for fitting a very large random number. These include the assumption that the data follows a specific distribution, the presence of outliers, and the complexity of the data. Additionally, a formula may not accurately predict the behavior of the random number in all scenarios.
