Primes before 121

Attempted Work on a “Fractal” Method to Find Prime Numbers

I was inspired by some random thoughts for a different approach towards finding prime numbers, which was originally brought on by my work with the Sieve of Eratosthenes. I had considered what I was calling a Fractal based method of figuring out primes – finding a recurring or repeating pattern in a small dataset that may […]

Playing with a Computational Model of the Sieve of Eratosthenese to find Prime Numbers

Introduction I have just read about the Sieve of Eratosthenese from this Scientific American article from Facebook and was inspired to give it a try to see how it works, especially because the math and programming seemed simple enough. I worked with a dataset of 1-1000. I also tried up to 100,000. My browser to freaks […]
