Default a computational perspective and observational N.T.

Hi Mersenneforum,

Some of you may have access to the
number theory textbook called -

Prime Numbers
A computational Perspective
Second Edition

by Richard Crandall and Carl Pomerance.
copyright 2005

Specifically, near page 17, is some of my favorite information.

Before the advent of computational boxes (read computers) and the finding about electrical transistors, many of these long numbers would have been impossible.

Thanks to Dana for helping me. We both live the State of Oregon, here in the good old United States of America.

In my opinion Tarence Tao is the greatest living mathematician today.
He and Ben Green "observed" a theorem about arithmetic progressions in prime numbers.

But that is not computational number theory.

For what it's worth,
