Arithmetic Polygons and Sums of Consecutive Integers – Amy Woodall

In this talk, we introduce and study a notion of arithmetic polygons. We will then connect this to triples of square pyramidal numbers that lie in arithmetic progression. We prove that, for every odd n >= 3, there exists at least one arithmetic polygon with n sides. We also show that there are infinitely many arithmetic polygons with an even number of sides.
