hey guys

let's say that somebody finds something like "the theory of prime numbers", what kind of monetary rewards could that person expect to receive? could he remain anonymous?

>>

in other words, i did kind of find the theory of primes. i fully understand why they exist but i don't really want to make it public if i won't get paid/have to give up my anonymity. what do i do?

>>

>what are donations

>what is asking to remain anonymous

>the theory of prime numbers

Is that anything like winning algebraic geometry?

Yes, there are many applications for such a thing.

>>

>>7847513

it's arbitrarily sized "magic" numbers and arithmetic

>>

>>7847499

>i fully understand why they exist

what does this even mean

asking "why do primes exist" is stupid

they exist because of the way we define numbers and divisibility

there's no unsolved questions there

>>

>>7847522

that's weird because they kinda made a big deal out of a 22million digit prime that was found recently, you'd think that there's lots of unresolved questions

>>

>>7847529

What does one have to do with the other?

Anyway, we have this thread every week. OP you don't know shit and you're too stupid to see that you don't know shit. Now fuck off.

Okay, so, at some point I may have told you to, "Use your words." This was obviously a mistake on my part, because English isn't a mathematical language.

Can you try expressing that in a way that doesn't lend itself to five billion or so interpretations? We're not going to stare at your number and suddenly "get it" unless we have a reason to stare at it. Pointing in random directions doesn't make for great discussions of mathematical principles.

>>

>>7847529

Knowing _why_ primes exist doesn't tell you anything about how to find them or how to tell if a number is prime or not

>>

We need more information OP. What do you mean by you "found the theory of prime numbers"?

Answer in an understandable format too, like >>7847532 said.

>>

>>7847534

actually it explicitly does

>>7847542

i don't know what about "theory of prime numbers" would be so hard to understand. anyways, you guys are a little too mean so just delete this thread i'm leaving

>>

>>7847550

Listen bud, if you claim to have solved what you are hinting at (assuming you are not lying), I would go on the run immediately and find a way to anonymously organize a group of top and trusted cryptographers to figure out a good way to release your discovery to the world.

Make sure you do not tell anyone else, have fun :^)

>>

>>7847566

Not OP, but there's a timeline where I tried that. It didn't go over too well. (Someone actually came back in time to tell me that I die in that timeline.)

>>

>>7847573

Me too but in my alt timeline trump got elected lol!!!

>>

>>7847494

we go through threads like this every week.

you dont have shit now retard pls go.

>>

>>7847589

EVERY. GODDAMN. DAY.

Yes, you can publish a PGP signed document under a pseudonym and prove it was you at any time using a pgp key.

Of course, you didn't find out anything that matters so yeah

>>

OP is retarded, prove me wrong

>>

>>7847884

If OP actually found the secret key to prime numbers, PGP and all encryption would be worthless.

Which is why we all know he didn't find anything.

>>

There actually are formulas for finding the next prime number. The problem is that they're so complex and unwieldy that even complex supercomputers don't have enough computing power to find them after a certain point and it just becomes easier to find them using other methods.

The real challenge with prime numbers is finding a reliable and economical way to calculate them, not calculating them to begin with since like I said there are several formulas which can already do that.

You get your dick sucked at very least
