Just what is a Vampire Number?

It's two numbers of equal length multiplied with the result having every digit occuring in both factors.
That sounds like somethin' a dummy would write, so these first seven vampires explain it all.

21 x 60 = 1260
15 x 93 = 1395
35 x 41 = 1435
30 x 51 = 1530
21 x 87 = 1827
27 x 81 = 2187
80 x 86 = 6880

Numbers like 350 x 410 and 3500 x 4100 don't count for obvious reasons. Even dummies can figure this one out.

If you're not a dummy and want to see just how far this insanity has gone, check out the current
World Record holder's web site or go to Wikipedia's Page.

    This all started from a "Brain Bogglers" article by Clifford Pickover in
Discover magazine back in '95.  The largest number he stated in that article was 20 digits long.

1234554321 x 9162361086 = 11311432469283552606

Clifford Pickover's RealityCarnival

Since I was attempting to teach myself how to progam in C,  I came up with a
program that could find a "massive" 24 digit number!   My record with this program was:

999999456323 x 999999718613 = 999999174936152983639999

I sent my "massive" number to Clifford only to be dumbfounded to learn that
John Childs had found an "amazingly massive" 40 digit number:
98765432198765432198 x 98765432198830604534 = 9754610597415368368844499268390128385732

I wasn't going to be outdone.  Since I could only squeeze 15 digit accuracy out of my original program,
I went back to elementary school and wrote a program to multiply numbers just like a 3rd grader would.
I doubled that number and realized what a worthless endeavor this was.  I gave up on this 80 digit number in '96.

9999999876543219876543219876543219876543 x 9876543219876543219876543210000011652393 =

Fast forward six years.  I type "Vampire Numbers" into google and realized that this worthless endeavor
was still ongoing.  Now there's a 100 digit record found by Myles Hilliard on March 9 1999.  This may be the number:

98765432109876543210987654321098765432108990776898 x 98765432109876543210987654321098765432109967196255 =

I wasn't going to be outdone, . . again!.  A simple program update and more numbers appeared.

This is about the time (Nov. '02) I discovered Jens' 10060 digit number.
You just had to go and spoil the fun for us dummies didn't ya. There's no
formulas, mod9 congruences, special number sequences or anything but a shot
in the dark to find these vampires. Since you jumped from 100 to 10060 digits,
I awarded myself the"Record Vampire Number for Dummies" with this gold star I
proudly wear on my forehead.


What? . . Me Worry!    I'm not gonna be intimidated like every one else.   The hunt continues . . . .
