University of Central Missouri Math Whiz!

UCM used to be called CMSU (Central Missouri State University) in Warrensburg. When I was in school, we called it "Call Me Stupid University."

Anyway, math whiz at UCM discovers the largest known prime number, 17 million digits long. Wow!

Story is here in the Manchester, England Guardian newspaper:

Writing a program to compute prime numbers efficiently is CS 101. You just need the computer horsepower to crunch the numbers and sit back and wait.

You would be correct if you hadn't included the word "efficiently" in your statement. The algorithm they teach you in CS 101 works just fine for numbers as big as this one. That is, it works just fine if you have billions of years to do the computations.

That's why this is getting attention. He used a different technique that's far more efficient (and complex) than just dividing every potential prime number candidate by every other number smaller than itself.

Nope. But many of my pals are Jackasses or Jennies.

In my youth I had a lot of fun in Warrensburg, especially when I was in High School. Great place to spend a Friday and Saturday night. Lots of pretty girls.
