##### Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

**integer**

"a whole number" (opposed to *fraction*), 1570s, from Latin *integer* (adj.) "whole, complete," figuratively, "untainted, upright," literally "untouched," from *in-* "not" (see in- (1)) + root of *tangere* "to touch" (see tangent (adj.)). The word was used earlier in English as an adjective meaning "whole, entire" (c.1500).

**Integer**

An **integer** (from the Latin integer meaning "whole") is a number that can be written without a fractional component. For example, 21, 4, 0, and −2048 are integers, while 9.75, , and are not.

The set of integers consists of zero , the natural numbers (, , , …), also called *whole numbers* or *counting numbers*, and their additive inverses (the **negative integers**, i.e. −1, −2, −3, …). This is often denoted by a boldface Z ("") or blackboard bold Z ( Unicode U+2124 ℤ) standing for the German word *Zahlen* (, "numbers"). ℤ is a subset of the sets of rational and real numbers and, like the natural numbers, is countably infinite.

The integers form the smallest group and the smallest ring containing the natural numbers. In algebraic number theory, the integers are sometimes called **rational integers** to distinguish them from the more general algebraic integers. In fact, the (rational) integers are the algebraic integers that are also rational numbers.

**Integer (computer science)**

In computer science, an **integer** is a datum of **integral data type**, a data type which represents some finite subset of the mathematical integers. Integral data types may be of different sizes and may or may not be allowed to contain negative values. Integers are commonly represented in a computer as a group of binary digits (bits). The size of the grouping varies so the set of integer sizes available varies between different types of computers. Computer hardware, including virtual machines, nearly always provide a way to represent a processor register or memory address as an integer.

Given some moderately sophisticated mathematical concepts--which could be built up from elementary ideas based on __integer__ exemplars--quantum graphs were far easier to talk about than anything as abstract and contingent as social structures.

In particular the harmonic relationships between frequencies related by simple __integer__ ratios would give rise to corresponding relationships between neural firings in response to those frequencies.

Suddenly, I was seized by a childish compulsion to write in sequence all the __integers__ from 1 to 1,000.

Yet his capacity to fathom the properties of the __integers__ was such that he sometimes found himself watching a number unfold to reveal the reproductive structure within.

This same number, viewed a bit differently, was a special element in the set of positive __integers__, being a mathematically perfect number, equal to the sum of its divisors.

Strange, she thought, how the __integers__, which are discrete, and our attempts to chart time, which is continuous, may well combine to give us a common area of reference with extraterrestrials.

He wrote down the __integers__ not by name but symbol, listing roughly a dozen, sometimes more, before going back to do the crossing out.

The __integers__ were immensely pleasing to list, much more so than any of the other categories, the sequences arrayed like numerical paternosters.

O'Toole next scattered the numbers of the two birthdates using an inverse Fibonacci sequence (34, 21,13,8, 5, 3, 2,1,1) to define the locations of the nine new __integers__ in the original forty-one-digit string.

Two thousand twenty-five is the sum of the cubes of the __integers__, one cubed plus two cubed plus three cubed and so on up to nine cubed, all added together.

But can chance account for the fact that these and other prime __integers__ of precession keep cropping up in supposedly unrelated mythologies from all over the world, and in such stolid but enduring vehicles as calendar systems and works of architecture?
