Dr. John Bonomo, Westminster College Professor of Computer Science, published a paper in the January 2014 issue of The College Mathematics Journal, a publication of the Mathematical Association of America. The article is entitled "Not All Numbers Can Be Created Equally."
Abstract: We take a well-known problem-which numbers can or cannot be written as a sum of consecutive integers-and generalize it for summations involving any arithmetic sequence. Various general and specific theorems involving these summations are proven.
