- Hi Peter,
Thank you for your posting about prime generators.
In my 10/17 and 11/7 postings, I have shown 6*n -1/+1
prime distributions provide answers for some of the
intriguing but fundamental prime questions summarized
from 10/17 posting.
1. Prime distribution in natural numbers e.g. as to
why there are only 2 primes between 10,000,000
and 10,000,100 whereas there are 25 between 0
2. Presence and absence of twin primes.
3. Why Pi(N) of any N is a particular value i.e for
instance why Pi100)is 25 or Pi(1000)is 168 and
not say 42 or 173.
4. computation of prime pairs for an even
number meeting Goldbach's Conjecture requirements.
5. Presence of arithmetic progressions in primes,
a topic of recent interest.
(See Science, Vol.34, 21 May 2004, p.1085)
6. Basis for factoring large compound primes.
I hope serious attention is paid to understand basic
prime questions as above instead of being relegated
to back burner as now.
