I believe that the author gave more explanation on his formula to his P(N). Right now to me it seems to have been just plucked out of thin air.

Anyways, intelligent nitpicks should be left for the more qualified.

As far as I can tell, the only thing he's done is to observe that there are three distinct numbers of the form:

[tex]\cos 2\pi(\frac{j}{3} + (N - 3)) + i \sin 2\pi(\frac{j}{3} + (N-3))[/tex]

and two distinct numbers of the form

[tex]\cos 2\pi(\frac{j}{2} + (N+1 - 3)) + i \sin 2\pi(\frac{j}{2} + (N+1-3))[/tex]

when j and N are integers.

This is at least a year old, does arxiv ever take out the trash?

If they do take him seriously, they must think he's a mathematical god. On arxiv, he's also "proven" the Euler-Masceroni constant is irrational.

The only point of that paper is to impress the math-illiterate with fancy-looking equations.
