I am a software engineer with an interest in mathematics. My particular area of interest is the Goldbach conjecture. I am also interested in the twin prime conjecture. I hope to learn more about modular arithmetic and set theory in the near future.

comment Is there a way to solve this problem
From a less technical viewpoint, it is easy to see from trial and error that the function has a maximum value of about 0.53 where n is about 0.5

A082467 is certainly of interest if only for confirmation of some of the numbers in my series.

comment Longest Odd/Even Sequence in Composite Patterns
Thanks Charles. I haven't established quite how relevant this is yet, but I can see that it is not totally unconnected at least. I will mark this up if I get nothing better, but I'm not sure if it's too late to award you the bounty.

comment Is this geometry statement incomplete?
They look perfectly parallel to me. Try measuring the distance between them at different points along their length. It might be an optical illusion.

@Brian M.Scott In addition to the L and T shapes aren't there also some S-like shapes?

@Gerry Myerson I would appreciate it if you could have another look now that I've made it clearer what column 15 means. There's also a numerical example demonstrating its significance. Please.

Virtually a complete rewrite - due to the poor and degrading quality of my first attempt.
