Mathematician who is going deep into collaborations with commercial sector businesses. They have me working on different technologies and throw really interesting problems at me.

Love thinking too deeply about almost anything; sea turtle speed. Maybe I will manage to outrace the sail fish! lol

comment Understanding why the public exponent $e$ is chosen the way it is in RSA
can you explain why it is wrong for there to be an element in G where $x^r=1$ would there not be such occurances if $r$ was not a multiple?

so if $e$ was a factor of $n$, then a multiple of it would produce a mapping from x+1 to 1 using the modulus operator and then it would be known how to find the other multiple and then find the inverse?

@Anreas Caranti, could you possibly make it a bit more accessible to a layman? I am unable to work out why $x^r =1$ when $r$ divides $e$.

comment What is the equation for the average path length in a random graph?
@DPoole, sure, that sounds good. The asymptotic distribution for the distance between any two vertices in the network looks close enough to what I am asking. I want to have a prior on the number of steps of a random walker in the network.

@DPoole, yes, this is the uniform basic random graph case, $G(n,m)$, a type of ER graph.

@AlexR. random graphs with high degree of community structure. Sparsely connected random graphs
