algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueLets say i have a value 545388669453 i need to use a algorithm to convert the value to a 6 digit value. then i enter the 6 digit value on the other application. the other application will use the same algorithm to get back the value of 545388669453. #2 20130727 15:53:34
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueYou have posted a number which contains 12 digits which I presume are from the set {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} Last edited by SteveB (20130727 16:07:43) #3 20130727 16:27:44
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valuei forgot to add that the value is actually a encrypted value which is not in fixed length, and the position of the digit cannot be sorted as i will lose information. #4 20130727 17:03:01
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueHow many possible values of the 12 digit number could there be ? Last edited by SteveB (20130727 17:13:46) #5 20130727 17:12:12
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueHi zxcvbnm123; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20130727 17:16:25
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueIf it does have to be secure then it would not be possible for zxcvbnm123 to post the details so we could have a problem here ! #7 20130727 17:26:16
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueHi SteveB; The base 36 digit number only requires 8 digits in its base. Higher bases would give the required 6 digits (character ) answer. That is, if he will allow that?! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #8 20130727 17:37:27
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueYes I think my answer was essentially a "base 100" system that I had in mind. I don't really consider it possible otherwise. #9 20130727 18:06:21
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valuei am using rsa encryption formula to get the values Last edited by zxcvbnm123 (20130727 19:28:51) #10 20130727 18:24:22
Re: algorithm to reduce long list of value to fix length valueIf you have 26 letters of the alphabet then each of these has 26 possible values. Last edited by SteveB (20130727 18:31:43)
