Prime number

Listen to the frequencies of primes in their distributed intervals.

A prime number is a natural number that only can be divided by 1 and itself. They are the most basic units or “atoms” of numbers, since they cannot be divided further. Any positive integer can be ultimately broken down into prime number factors. Primes are all odd numbers, with the only exception of prime number "2".

  1. The Prime Number Theorem (PNT), can be used to find the estimated number of primes in a specified range.
  2. The distribution of primes becomes more random and rarer as the numbers get larger.
  3. Twin prime numbers is a repeating phenomenon; where two odd primes are separated by an even number.
  4. Prime numbers are used in security purposes such as message encryption.
