Summation of peaking sequences

  1. Nov 11, 2009 #1
    well, peaking is just a term I gave to a sequence that progresses normally, but when it gets to the point of regression, the pattern changes. this is a bad explanation so here is an example:

    take the sequence as follows:
    2+4+6+7+6+4+2
    now look at this sequence
    2+4+6+4+2
    whats the difference? 7+6
    so, that sequence plus the ( peak + (peak- (delta-1)))
    if this is so then we can reduce the equation to a progressive to regressive sequence.

    so the equation would turn out to be
    [tex]\frac{(Rp-1)^{2}}{2}+ (2Rp-1)[/tex] (in the occasion at least, you can write it to accommodate all)

    so
    2+4+6+7+6+4+2=31

    and
    [tex]\frac{(6)^{2}}{2}+ (7+6)=31[/tex]

    I believe this is correct for a peak of -1. as for a peak equal to delta... it is just:
    [tex]Rp^{2}+2Rp-1[/tex]

    This is as far as I have come, if anyone is willing to add one of there long algebraic explanations to this topic that explains this I would be very happy (hwmaltby!!) :).

    Once I learn how to do them (remind you I have not done anything that I am currently doing independently in school) I will do this without help more. And I must come here because my teachers are on the same level of thought as I am lol.
