About the open university library services

I am still happy with studying polygonal numbers and representations of numbers as $n$ $n-$gonal numbers. I understand Langrange's proof of the four square theorem.

I did a Google search related to square representations and came across this JSTOR page. It is a 7 page PDF but downloading it would have cost me $12.--. The Open University Library Services came to the rescue. I searched within the category of mathematics for all documents with the title 'On the partition of numbers into squares'. This query returned zero results. A search for that same title in the JSTOR collection however did return a result. I could access the document for no charge at the OU Library.

I find it encouraging that I can read and understand this number theory article. ( From the American Mathematical Monthly, 1948 ).

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
