Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

Hi Bobbym

It would take some times and I would let you know when it is done.

Hi Bobby,

I'm sure I asked you a question once...I think...possibly...

I can't find it, though. Tried inputting a question mark in Search for posts of mine that had one of those things, but that didn't do it. Hmmm...maybe I was wrong.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

About the question mark or the question?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

About ever asking you a question (just going along with the doubt you expressed).

I thought that doing a search for my posts containing a question mark would bring up all posts where I had asked a question, and I was planning to then look through them to see if I'd ever asked you one.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

I already did, and it only returned 129 pages of my posts in descending date order. The first few I checked didn't have a question mark.

Maybe I've never asked a question.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

For some reason "?" is considered something else in the search.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

I'm pretty sure the search is limited, as we discussed recently in another thread. Only whole words work, I think, and some words are excluded.

I need to get some beauty sleepzzz......

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

Hi;

Okay, see you later. It looks like I will be doing the same thing.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

Anybody knows how to run the primality test using AKS? Here the AKS article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AKS_primality_test#History_and_running_time (I need for dummies instruction). I have ran ProvablePrimeQ[n] on the mathematica and even after more than a month still couldn't get the answer and it crashed my computer after sometimes. I need to make sure the primes here are true (especially for the large numbers).

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

It has been pointed out to me that it is very, very, slow.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

Dear bobbym

Thanks for the info. I think I need to upgrade my computing power to do the job.

Re: My New Twin Prime Numbers

I do not think so. It is very, very, very slow. Too slow to be useful except for small numbers.
