asked Does the fact that a tiling is tile-uniform always guarantee that it is also vertex-uniform?

I have rephrased my question, to hopefully clarify what I'm trying to ask.

I haven't yet worked out the prime factors of this number. In fact, it could be divisible by any prime $\leq \sqrt{567788}$... So, actually, I'd be interested in learning methods of determining prime factors of large numbers too.

comment Representing Recursion and Primitive Recursion diagrammatically
Thanks for your excellent description of the difference between how primitive recursive and recursive functions behave. I can now see that the difference lies in the nature of the loops. Depicting this will be an interesting project- I'll have to post it on here, as and when I come up with something! Your book looks really interesting- I shall have to track it down.

Thanks so much for your answer. I think I can see the thinking behind this now- well, I get how the algebra works anyway, and mostly get the rest of it... In answer to your questions- I am referring to f in the context of inferring the parity of n, i.e. $\chi_E$ This is what I meant by f and g doing the same thing. The overall topic in the textbook that I'm reading is 'characteristic functions'. Just one more thought- presumably $\chi_E$ would only be valid for the two cases 'n even' and 'n odd'?

Ah, I did indeed miss out the 'n's! I see that f and g obviously don't do the same thing, but it is presumably no coincidence that g has been written in the way that it has. I think I'll sleep on that and take another look at it tomorrow(!)
