New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredA new prime number has been discovered this week by GIMPS: It is now the largest known prime, a whopping 17milliondigit Mersenne prime. http://z13.invisionfree.com/SAKE/index. … wtopic=258 #2 20130209 00:44:34
Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130209 01:43:10

Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredI do believe that they offer a 5000$ prize to the dicsoverer. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredThe latex in the OP's post has gone out. I hope that is not a problem with the site. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredI think it is. MIF said that the LaTeX cache is the problem. Maybe we should try asking him to manually delete the broken LaTeX from the cache?

Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredI have fixed her latexing problems. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: New 17milliondigit Mersenne prime discoveredAccording to NewScientist, Cooper will recieve $3000. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
