## The Enneagram

The Enneagram is a figure that has been appropriated to model all sorts of things – a personality model, a body type model, and as a form for nine-facet systems within the larger topic of Systematics.

Various mathematical topics, three of which hold particular interest to me – base 3, n-grams, dimensionalities

In my last post I described N-Grams as “a collection of diagrams formed using the same mathematical / diagrammatic rules / conventions as the Enneagram, but applied to varying number bases and divisors.” Here are the N-Grams for base ten … Continued

Late last century I wrote about three mathematical ideas that hold particular interest for me. (See an earlier Math posting for a web link.) All have to do with the basics of number and structure. I went into some detail … Continued

The original contents of this post were used as a draft for that now has its own page on this site. I’m keeping this post here to allow comments and discussion by others. In brief, ternary (base 3) numbers are … Continued

[This post is (eventually: was) from http://www.solbakkn.com/math/ngramdetail.htm .] N-Grams are derived from the mathematical and graphical properties of the enneagram. The enneagram is a “paired” N-Gram, that is, composed of two “atomic” N-Grams which complement each other. (A pair of … Continued

[ What’s below is from old web content about N-Grams. To conserve the old content, I’m going to move it to a few posts here. This post is (eventually: was) from http://www.solbakkn.com/math/ngramintro.htm .] N-Grams is my term for a geometric … Continued
