Maar ook het getal dat bestaat uit 1031 enen achter elkaar is er eentje. Hoeveel van deze getallen zijn er dan? Oneindig veel, vermoedt men.
Recent is er weer wat ontdekt binnen de Getaltheorie, door James Maynar: er zijn ook oneindig veel priemgetallen zonder het cijfer 7 erin.
Een citaat uit het internetblad Plus:
What’s the point, and why did the European Mathematical Society see fit to award Maynard one of its prestigious prizes?
The answer is that prime numbers are hugely important in mathematics, and that Maynard’s result about primes without 7s is a test case. “Although the prime numbers are on some level very simple, most of the basic questions about them we still don’t know how to answer,” he explains. “So we’re working slowly, developing techniques that will hopefully be able to answer more fundamental questions. [The result about primes without 7s] was a nice test case problem that I have been working on to develop some of the techniques we use to understand prime numbers.”
