Anon, by arguing the utility of the find, you are falling into the plebians' rhetorical trap. He always has to have some sort of an application, never appreciating anything for its own sake. Meanwhile, a cuck with a chip on his shoulder, he his obliged to write, speak, and think in my language.
Although I have to admit that a computer bruteforcing a big number isn't such a big deal to me. Hardly knowledge.
>>7795758 >largest prime number we know of How computationally intensive is constructing an additional one? Of course Euclid's shit would take forever; can you discuss modern methods for constructing these large primes, how this number was constructed/found and speculate on how soon we'll supplant it?
>>7795943 >Take all the primes numbers we know of >multiply them together >add 1 It's funny you don't recognize this as exactly what I meant by "Euclid's shit" or realize I'm asking about explicit representations like the one in the OP. Sure is summer in here. Go ahead, multiply every prime from 2 to 2^74207281-1 and add 1. I'll wait.
>>7795758 I'm looking at the trend on the graph. Why is there an inflection point around 2000? I'd intuitively expect that graph to be exponential (and that's roughly what it is until 2000). Is it because the digits in the largest known prime correlate more with advances in number theory than with CPU power available?
