Here is an already started project, by my own, that needs to boost! A calculator? Yeess!
There is an ambitious goal behind it. Despite it could seem a simple calculator. I would like to make of it the largest parallel calculation platform to find the bigger prime numbers never found. Ok, a little bit like mining bitcoins but with a new original fast techinque never seen.
For this reason the first goal is improve the calculator, in the way it could be graphically fashinating for students and teachers, a users database, awards for using it, etc.etc. The aim is to spread it around the world and, in a clear and consciousness way, to encourage users to partecipate to its goal! A kind of prize, every time a large prime is found, is to make a gift kind of to bet who will be the lucky one.
The factibility studio is already made and needs just a bit if code implementation when the project will be mature.
The idea behind is explained in the well proofed Vinc’S Theorem. The theorem is already quite popular around the world. If you google search “prime numbers primorial” (without double quotes at the ends) you can find the Vinc’S Theorem page among those in first or second page. It would be a pleasure if you’ll try searching …. If nope, you can find an explanation of it following this direct link ….
