What is in the book?
The heart of our book is the 200+ page dictionary of about 2200 curios about over 1000 different primes. These curios are recorded in dictionary style---as brief entries, with over 150 tables and figures. Just use the page heading to find your prime, and learn something new!
... and more ..
Besides an introduction and a forward, we include a chapter on the $100,000 prime and a prime Moore's law. We include a glossary of key terms and lists of small primes.
Many of the curios are adapted from our database, and these have the contributors name in square brackets, e.g., [Gauss]. We have collected an index of these contributors in the back, as well as a second index of terms.
