New research aims to solve big questions about primes
Prime numbers are one of the most basic topics of study in the branch of mathematics called number theory. Several unresolved questions about prime numbers make up some of the oldest and most important open problems in mathematics. The EU-funded PRIMES project aims to shed further insight into several different questions related to prime distribution. To do so, it will first identify and classify potential obstructions to traditional methods. It will then seek connections with other areas of mathematics such as combinatorics, geometry, probability, automorphic forms and harmonic analysis.
