prime numbers
    #6260450 - 11/08/06 05:19 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

hmm i'm not really sure where this thread would go, but this is here for those loser nerds like me who after sticking their toe into the chilly pool of number theory have had their minds blown by all the properties and functions of prime numbers, with considerable respect to their applications in cryptography and factorizations.

and with respect to factorization, quantum computing equally blows my mind.

its like a whole new dimention of math opened up.

i think i want to stay as far away from it as i can.

sounds interesting. give me a mind blowing prime number fact.

also check out the movie Pi, if you already haven't.

http://www.physics.ucsb.edu/~msteffen/press/shor/MSNBC.htm

is an interesting article on quantum computing.

it's not so much the facts about primes that are strange, but their relations to each other, where they fall in the number line, how you can predict where one might be, and the likelihood that it is actually a non-composite number, the euler functions for gcd's and their implications in (prime) modular arithmetic, how every composite number can be broken down into a set of primes, etc.  i don't know i'm just stoned and thinking about this class im taking
:confused:

The P&S regulars had a good chew on number theory and quantum computing a few years ago here  :mushroom2:

Personally, I feel that numbers such as the Golden Ratio, Pi, exponential functions e, sqrt(-1) (i or j), are much more trippy. Check out the binary system. I believe that physicists will one day find the 0's and 1's of our universe which everything boils down to...

there is a picture, I cant pull up right now, but a quick search on google image would find it quickle. I think it was even my avatar for a while.... but it is called Ulams Rose. It is a picture of all the prime numbers marked on a grid which spirals from the center, up to 2 million +.

really trippy picture.

The movie Pi is to number theory what waking life is to philosophy.... like a 101 class, but a good way to peak interest.

Also, just the other day I was watching a special on savants, and there is a guy who can visualize numbers in an abstract way, and the way they look in his mind tells him whether or not they are prime... he can also do huge number exponential calculations in his head, like 13 ^ 9 in a matter of seconds.

Many people think he is bullshit, but when you see him do it, you have to believe. They were asking him prime numbers like 1,548,912.... he also recited Pi to the two thousandth decimal place.
