An integer is said to be a palindrome if it reads the same forwards and backwards. For example,

12321 is a palindromic number. It is easy to prove that the density of the palindromes is zero in

the set of positive integers.

Gregory [1] studies the Generalized Smarandache Palindrome(GSP) which is any integer of the

form

where all a1, a2, a3, . . . an are integers having one or more digits. For example,

and the segments are pairwise identical across the middle of the number.

As a point of clarification, we remove the possibility of the trivial case of enclosing the entire

number

which would make every number a GSP. This possibility is eliminated by requiring that each

number be split into at least two segments if it is not a regular palindrome.

(10)(06)(10)

Obviously, since each regular palindrome is also a GSP and there are GSPs that are not regular

palindromes, there are more GSPs than there are regular palindromes. Therefore, the density of

GSPs is greater than or equal to zero and we consider the following question.

Theorem: The density of GSPs in the positive integers is greater than 0.1.

anan-1 . . . a2a1a0

(k)an-1 . . . a1(k)

are GSPs, and there are nine different choices for k. For each of these choices, one tenth of the

values of the trailing digit would match it. Therefore, the density of GSPs is at least one tenth.

The simple proof of the previous theorem illustrates the basic idea that if the initial and terminal

segments of the number are equal, then the number is a generalized palindrome and the values of

the interior digits are irrelevant. This leads us to our general theorem.

anan-1 . . . a2a1a0

If the first and last digits are equal and nonzero, then the number is a generalized palindrome. As

was demonstrated in the previous theorem, the likelihood of this is 0.10.

If an = a1 and an-1 = a0, then the number is a GSP. Since the GSPs where an = a0 have already been

counted in the previous step, the conditions are

The situation is equivalent to choosing a nonzero digit for an, and decimal digits for an-1 and a0

that satisfy these conditions. This probability of this is easy to compute and is 0.009.

If an = a2, an-1 = a1 and an-2 = a0, then the number is a GSP. To determine the probability here, we

need to choose six digits, where an is nonzero and the digits do not also satisfy the conditions of

the two previous cases. This is also easily computed, and the value is 0.0009.

The case where an = a3, an-1 = a2, an-2 = a1 and an-3 = a0 is the next one, and the probability of

satisfying this case after failing in the three previous cases is 0.0000891.

The sum of these probabilities is 0.10 + 0.009 + 0.0009 + 0.0000891, which is 0.1099891.

This process could be continued for initial and terminal segments longer and longer, but the

probabilities would not be enough to make the sum 0.11.
