# The First 50 Million Prime Numbers

@article{Zagier1977TheF5, title={The First 50 Million Prime Numbers}, author={Don Zagier}, journal={The Mathematical Intelligencer}, year={1977}, volume={1}, pages={7-19} }

I would like to tell you today about a subject which, although I have not worked in it myself, has always extraordinarily captivated me, and which has fascinated mathematicians from the earliest times until the present namely, the question of the distribution of prime numbers. You certainly all know what a prime number is: it is a natural number bigger than 1 which is divisible by no other natural number except for I. That at least is the number theorist's definition; other mathematicians…

The conference started with why, for ten minutes. I do mathematics because I like it. We discussed briefly the distinction between pure mathematics and applied mathematics, which actually intermingle…

Increment Primes

The increment of prime numbers was a clear indication. Increase - the number increases, the addition of something. If the number of prime numbers, figuratively called the "ladder of Gauss-Riemann,"…

Prime numbers seem to be distributed among the natural numbers with no law other than that of chance; however, their global distribution presents a quite remarkable smoothness. Such interplay between…

On algebraic structure of the set of prime numbers

- Mathematics

The set of prime numbers has been analyzed, based on their algebraic and arithmetical structure. Here by obtaining a sort of linear formula for the set of prime numbers, they are redefined and…
