Rangan's Theory of Cycles

Stage: 4 and 5
Abhay sent us this investigation and discovery of some structural arithmetical patterns held by cyclic sets of natural numbers.

You can  read about his theory of cycles here.

Can you follow Abhay's argument? Does this fit into a larger structure about which you already know?  Perhaps you can suggest some generalisations?  

If you wish to comment on the investigation or discuss it with others, you can use this thread on the Ask NRICH forum
