I look for solution where I can a: change size of matrix b change "color" of numbers as I wish Did you seen something like that on Net?

I did something similar to this a few years ago. The most recent prime, which I believe to be M74207281, has 22,338,618 digits. If one wanted a truly square image, then said image would need to be 4327 x 4327 pixels. I arrived at this by taking the square root of the number of digits, and rounding up. This probably coudn't be done on a screen, but I believe ti could be done in RAM then saved to a bitmap file. Using colors could be misleading. I would use grayscale. A value of 0 (zero) would be white, and 9 would be black. The values between could be represented by increasing the grayscale value by 25.

Based on your rules, wouldn't you immediately switch white to black?

No, not for decimal numbers Below is a table of values for each decimal number, using the RGB color model.

Code:
0 = 250,250,250
1 = 225,225,225
2 = 200,200,200
3 = 175,175,175
4 = 150,150,150
5 = 125,125,125
6 = 100,100,100
7 = 50,50,50
8 = 25,25,25
9 = 0,0,0
If a person has the prime number in a text document, for example, you would read it, one digit at a time, and assign a color value, then place in the bitmap, starting at coordinate 0,0, then proceed right until coordinate 4326,0 was reached. Drop down to coordinate 0,1 and continue from there, repeating the process until the images was complete.

It would depend on what type of monitor a person has in regards to being able to see the entire image, without some type of resampling.

 2017-07-22, 04:42 #8 Jayder     Dec 2012 2·139 Posts I've been working on this as a side project for over a year. I'm having problems with R where lines that should overlap do not, and I can't figure out a way to correct that. The following images are intentionally in low resolution, because it does not meet my standards: M49, base 10 M30, base 6 This is a common idea, but I got it specifically from Nadieh Bremer. I will point you to her wonderful blog for the explanation of these: https://www.visualcinnamon.com/portfolio/the-art-in-pi (Her code has a few quirks and has trouble with large numbers, so I rewrote the bulk of it.) I also converted M49 to base 2^24-1 in order to have (almost) every colour in the 24-bit colour space represent a digit. Here is that image (I cannot upload it to a hosting site because they compress large files): Google drive link

When whoever converted it to a PNG, a lot of data was lost in that instant. It got very fuzzy when I zoomed in. Still, this is a good example of what an image representation can look lilke.

Are you guys reproducing work which has already been done? Please see as an example.

Amusingly, I remembered this previous work, and first searched using Google Images using the term "Prime Curve".

This is the result I got back. And, of course, my girlfriend then immediately entered the room asking what I would like for dinner.

Thankfully she has a good sense of humour, but I'm going to cook tonight....

You were supposed to download it, not view the preview. I guess I wasn't clear.

Hopefully everybody here is familiar with Ulam's spiral already. What is the reason for your question, anyhow? I've already admitted that this is not an original idea.
