    • Abstract

       

      For two natural numbers $1$ < $p1$ < $p2$, with $\alpha = \frac{log(p1)} {log(p2)}$ irrational, we describe in the Main Theorem $\Omega$ and in Note 1.5, the factorization of two adjacent numbers in the multiplicatively closed subset $S = \{p^{i}_{1} p^{j}_{2}\,|\, i, j \in \mathbb{N}\cup\{0\}\}$ using primary and secondary convergents of $\alpha$. This suggests the general Question 1.2 for more than two generators which is still open.
