Title: Prime numbers
Post by: Krice on May 29, 2017, 12:32:56 PM
I think working on prime numbers is a nice hobby. I haven't read a lot about them (I'm not good at math), all I know they seem to be somewhat "random", although I don't believe they are. The way composite numbers are made up appears to be two types: divisible by two or made from a number of >2 primes in a certain way (some kind of prime sequence itself) where I think there is some kind of logic in that, but I don't yet know what.

Did I start a topic about this already? Can't remember..

If you're interested in learning more about prime numbers, https://projecteuler.net/problem=3 (https://projecteuler.net/problem=3) is a great place to start. A lot of the problems on Project Euler deal with prime numbers.

Are you referring to prime numbers or composite?

AI wants to know the secret of prime numbers as well. It would be interesting to try to solve them by using AI, I guess? I think the key is in composite numbers and primes are actually the "boring" ones, a kind of completion of a cycle.
