consider the statement:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"every positive integer can be written in a unique way as the sum of powers of 2"

I like to "play" and look for patterns like these. What are of math is occupied with these sorts of patterns. I am looking for a book that would talk more about these kinds of patterns. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks
