My new hobby is mathematics (and by new I mean about ten years), specifically prime numbers. This page will have lots of lists of prime numbers, prime factorizations, and other prime-related stuff. This is what I got so far:

- The First 500 Prime Numbers
- The First 2500 Integers Factored
- Some attempts to find the pattern of prime numbers
- A little Javascript to list prime numbers
- An incomplete list of the known Mersenne primes The only page on the Web to actually write out the first 25 Mersenne primes in base 10 digits! For the Mersenne primes after that, this page actually gives an approximation in scientific notation.
- Möbius and Mertens Values of the first 2500 Integers
- Values of Euler's Totient Function for the first 500 Integers
- Values of the Restricted Divisors Function for the first 1000 Integers
- Integer Factorer
- Totient Answers for the first 1000 Integers
- PrimeFan's Listing of Esoteric Integer Sequences
- Arguments for and against the primality of 1
- Approximating the Golden Ration by Dividing Fibonacci Numbers
- Representations of 1 to 512 in Bases 2 to 16
- Cunningham Chains of the first kind from among the first 100000 primes
- Liouville Lambda and Liouville Sum Values For n = 1 to 2500
- Goldbach Representations of Even Integers 8 to 1000

**This page**- Power Sum Expressions for 4 to 512 Currently complete through 64, partial through 512.
- Solutions to Znám's Problem Complete up to
*k*= 8. A partial solution for*k*= 13 is listed. - GCD Calculator Works just fine when both inputs are positive. Not to be relied on for negative integers. I will add some bells and whistles after I fix the negative integer problem.

some prime fan you are 1 is not a prime number. the difinition of a prime number with only TWO factors 1 and itself. 1 is not prime because it only has ONE factor. How can you even make a website about something you know so little about?

Thank you very much for that comment. He's right, I do know very little about prime numbers. But how can I make a website on something I'm not an expert on? That's a question for GeoCities.

Euclid was probably wise enough [to acknowledge] that he too knew little about primes. That's the different between wise men and [expletive deleted] idiots like J. Ben who can't say anything beyond the definition they were taught in school and so blindly believe. I imagine he's some kind of poser who prefers to deal in Greek letters, keep Roman letters to a minimum and avoids numeric literals like the plague. To posers, someone who looks at numeric literals, especially unspectacular small ones like 1, must be some kind of quack. But you're not quack. Know that there are some of us at the Slovene Wikipedia who appreciate your work and your informativeness.

He didn't know how old I am, so old in fact that I was taught that 1 is prime in school. I never questioned that for the first half of my life because back then math for me was something practical: figure out the down payment on my house, do my taxes, that sort of thing. Now I can savor the purely theoretical aspect of it, and if I was a religious man, I would thank God for that. I certainly thank Anton for his kind words.
