5. An open problem.

Example 8. When we thought that our investigation was over, one student made an another beautiful figure. He calculated $ (10^{12n+2} - 10^{6n + 2} + 7 \times 10^{3n - 1} - 1)^{y} $ for $ n = 26$ and $ y = 11 $, and gave it colours.

Then he got the following figure. It is not a sector. It is the shape of a convex lens that reminds us of our own universe. We have not understood the mathematical structure of this shape.
