## Mathematics

### - Horror for every student, no, not for everyone.

I liked it in spite of not-motivated teachers(today I know other math-teachers)
so much that I studied Mathematics at University.

One of my favorite themes in Mathematics is the unsolved twin-prime-problem.

#### Prime-numbers are natural numbers(1,2,3,4,...), wich you only can divide through 1
and through the number itself.

Twin-primes are two primes with the distance 2 (11-13, 17-19).

In school you already learn that there are an infinite number of primes. But until
today there is no prove that there is an infinite number of twin-primes.

Who is interested will find
here
a website about it.

Here
you find a German website about primes and prime-twins. Much fun!!!

The greatest primenumber found yet (12/21/2018) is:
2^{82.589.933}-1 a number
with 24.862.048 digits. This kind of primenumbers are called Mersenne-Primes.
This is the 51st and was verified by Patrick Laroche from Ocala in Florida, USA.
