Default New method of finding large prime numbers

Dear Mersenne Prime number enthusiasts,

I have a degree in mathematics and have developed a recursive infinite
sequence that includes many prime numbers and gets larger much faster than the
Mersenne number sequence. It's not related to the Merseene numbers. Because
of it nature it may be
much easier to test and prove that a give number of the sequence is a prime
than it is to prove those of the Merseene number sequence are
prime, i.e. much less computing power. Now that you've won the $100,000 prize
there's a total of $400,000 prize money for generating prime numbers of
100,000,000 or more digits. If you're interested in more information about my
sequence, please use the contact information below.

You may respond via e-mail or call 7-days a week 619-401-9876 or toll free
888-588-9542 between 8AM and 11:45PM Pacific Time.

Best regards,

Just what we need. Another crank. He works in the US, so what
excuse does he have for writing incoherent prose replete with bad grammar,
bad spelling, and unsubstantiated claims? And having an infinite sequence
that grows "much faster" than the Mersenne sequence has NOTHING to
do with a faster prime proving algorithms. And if the sequence is
sufficiently fast growing then it contains finitely many primes with
probability 1.

I've got one of those too!

Define:
s0 = 2
s1 = 3
for x ≥ 2, sx = sx-1+2

Granted, it doesn't increase as quickly as the Mersenne numbers, but it gets there eventually. It's so dense with primes that 8 of the first 10 numbers are prime! By index x, there are about 2*x/(log x -1) primes in the sequence.



Shouldn't this be in Misc Math, where Silverman and anyone else being serious can ignore it?

This smells like spam. The guys website seems to be hawking some snake oil to audiophiles.

ETA: Oh yuck, he's also an ambulance chaser. Although the math degree claim is substantiated on another website. http://www.positive-feedback.com/Iss...alityCheck.htm

George Louis is an anagram of "gorgeous lie".

I just knew y'all were dying to know that.

Why don't you go and find the "$400,000" prime yourself?

What, and keep all the glory and fabulous prize money to himself? Unthinkable!

No way - this is way too much fun to delete so soon.
