    The project has problems?
    In the project small activity of users. Weak user activity on the message board. The administration doesn't publish any news of the project. IMHO, this is the wrong attitude to the users.
    We want to know for what purpose we are counting? What is the use of our voluntary distributed?

    Sorry for my bad English :(

      I am in the progress to get some new information about the Binsys project from the mathematicians. Please give me a few more days and it is coming! :)

        Thanks! Personally, I haven't had any computation-related problems for a long time -- the forum is always busiest when tasks are failing, taking too long, or being rejected by the validator -- but it would be nice to hear more about the research: goals, results, and publications. We don't even seem to have the throughput graphs any more ...

        Regards to /Ad/am (if he's still there!) and the rest of the team.

        (P.S. There's something wrong with the text encoding ... again. My message previewed OK as originally typed, but I had to replace all the non-ASCII characters for it to display after posting.)

          We are waiting and do not lose hope. :)

            I received a few information about the project status. There is a short description and the results we have already achieved.

            The usual decimal system can be generalized in several ways, GNS (generalized number systems) being one of them. In these systems the decimal base 10 is replaced by a square matrix and the digits 0-9 are replaced by a suitable set of vectors, also called digits. In some cases, every vector in the space can be represented by a finite sum of powers of the base each multiplied by one of the digits, the same way as for example 256 is the sum of 100 times 2, 10 times 5 and 1 times 6. In these cases the vectors of the space can be mapped to finite sequences of digits and vice versa - suggesting potential applications in coding or cryptography. These applications explain why these systems are of interest for informatics.

            Unfortunately, the exact conditions on the base and the vector that ensure that such a representation exists and is unique are currently unknown, making the problem also interesting for mathematicians. The aim of the application is to provide a complete list of GNS in a few special cases. Although there are an infinite number of systems, if we fix the size of the problem, that is the size and number of the vectors and impose an additional condition of using the so-called canonical digit set, then this number is finite and computer methods for traversing the search space exist. Obtaining the complete lists for the special cases will hopefully support the better mathematical understanding of the structure of GNS. Some partial results are already obtained in Burcsi, P., Kovács, A.: Exhaustive search methods for CNS polynomials, Monatshefte für Mathematik, 155, 421-430, 2008

            Currently we know all canonical binary number systems up to dimension 13 (the former record was 8), and many ternary number systems. The research also led to the invention of the concept of semi-number-systems.

                How can take in real life, your researches?

                  It's very hard to predict how results from 'pure' or theoretical mathematics will find application. Non-Euclidean geometries were pretty well just a weird curiosity until it turned out that certain versions model Einsteinian (Minkowskian) space-time very well, providing a mathematical framework for the General Theory of Relativity ...

                  I would guess that for discrete mathematics, the general field of this project, the most likely areas of application are cryptography and information theory -- but you never can tell.
