+The Egglepple Company

The Egglepple Company (or just Egglepple) is the pseudonym given to what is now known as Egglepple (kindergarten). It was an incorporated@ business entity in various states throughout the United States of America prior to its deprecation, reorganization, and later inclusion into LES. Historically, Egglepple was the very first establishment to be a standalone/independent recreational mathematics+ enterprise (+:=contract-based, sometimes ghostwriting for academe from 10/2000 - 02/2001).Reference: Ohio Secretary of State's Office (also of interest The Stewart Ellis Company - Gobotech, #305)

Note (+): pm:=pure mathematics, am:=applied mathematics. (see Funshine/Toonlight)





"Egglepple" is the middle name of Link Egglepple Starbureiy, after whom the company is called, and by whom the entity was created. It spawned from the unincorporated/unorganized Egglepple Portfolio (for toy [puzzle] design, circa 1991).

Note (+): Nowadays, the 'company' portion is assumed to be my roster (of characters/personalities +gallery) and the yots.

Back at The Ohio State University, I put in my time roving the halls of the mathematics, physics/astronomy, and chemistry departments. I was fairly new in that world ("publish or perish") and really wasn't familiar with LaTeX and that publishing scheme back then (the departments certainly didn't make it easy for non-staff to have access to the system), so I did what I did best when it came to visual expression, I drew stuff up/wrote stuff down on napkins (yes, at times with wax crayons🖍️ or colored pencils✏️).

The astronomy department was awesome in the regard that they treated people who came through their doors respectfully. The math department, however, was the total opposite. There was so much ego (mine included) polluting the building that it was almost laughable, yet frustrating. Anyway, there would be these 'challenge' problems/help requests from the community (ie. intra-departmental) often posted on bulletins, offering modest bounties💵 (very short-term contracts) for their solutions. The opportunist in me would peel these from the boards, take them home, and come back shortly thereafter with my answer(s) written on (paperclipped🖇️) napkins. I remember just vagabonding off of those purses (yes, I was a 'bounty hunter') for periods at a time (sometimes in conjunction with all-levels math tutoring/coaching gigs). I guess that - in addition to responding to Michio Kaku's earlier proposition - was me (being the person responsible for) turning math into my version of a sport (, and thus, solidifying my interest in ctfs🏁).

+mathematics

Mathematics is the design language for proving ideal behaviors of the (so-called) abstract.

Note (+): An 'open story of counting', it must be said that mathematical methodology is a cumulative effort (ie. built atop previous checks).



As a library for manipulating+synthesizing variables, mathematicians use its subfields* and models to solve puzzles+formulate theories/theorems/identities.We acknowledge the so-called 'Big Five (5)' active areas in mathematics to be: algebra, analysis, arithmetic, geometry, and music. As far as I am concerned, the basis of math is juking. (see also mathemusic, mathletics, recreational mathematics, mathematical model, Mathilda, 📓So, you want to be a mathematician?, The Mathemagician, Solve, physics, information science, cryptosport)
"The essence of mathematics is not proof, but conjecture." - Link Starbureiy

Notes (+): +There are three (3) classes of mathematics: pure, applied, and recreational (pure,applied ∈ recreational). This definition covers all three (3), and may be referred to as polymathematics. Someone who advances the field can be called a mathematician.

+In my line of work, I think of so-called 'recreational mathematics' as a type of (among other considerations) reverse engineering, where we I am re-creating known structures/models for study and understanding. As an example, in puzzle solving, I may take a known and solved (from means other than juking) macromolecule (eg. protein), and juke that fibor so that it can databased. (see also Pajamas)

+Mathematics is a type of low-technology, as well as being its own industry.

+mathemusic

Formulator: Link Starbureiy
Mathemusic is the functional conflation (via the loopstring) of mathematics and music (defined as 'an incorporation of keys and timing') whose resultant is a y-proof. This tends more towards being a supermathematical exercise grounded in the principles of music theory. However, it is practically expressing (with libretti) statistics in the framework of music (even sans sonically). Cryptologically, it is the algorithmic direction of variation*. When we speak of mathemusic, we are generally doing so in the context of The Origamic Symphony (and not to exclude Egglepple).Solutions have melodic texture. (see also ¢ent, mathletics, lnq's Starting Five, 3-rex, fibor, UUe, juke notation)

Note (+): Contemporary mathemusic was originally formulated by Link Starbureiy.🤓
