1.1 The misleading prime number sieve of Eratosthenes

Figure 1: Some square "Sieves of Eratosthenes" with primes and other special numbers marked

Figure 2: Rectangular arrays four and six units wide, and the distribution of primes into only two of their columns

1.2. Proving the twin prime conjecture

Figure 3: Factor lines of prime multiples in the six-wide array

1.3. Laws and Order in Primeland

1.3.1.  Numerical versus physical universes

1.3.2.  The ongoing search for prime laws

1.4. Polygonal numbers

Figure 4: Polygonal numbers as dot figures, and some simple visual proofs of their relationships

1.4.1.  Gnomons and triangle chemistry

1.4.2. Polygonal-number "pyramids"

1.4.3.  The triangular- number "pyramid"

Figure 5: The top of the triangular- number stairway, and its alignments of primes

Figure 6: The same number- line segments as in Figure 5, but stacked symmetrically

1.4.4. The square- to- square "pyramid"

Figure 7: The apex of the square- to- square "pyramid", and its strings of primes

1.5. Prime-rich edge-parallels

Table 1: Angles of repetition for columns and edge parallels


The above chapters are free, and we hope they wet your appetite for the additional surprises in the extra chapters.  You can open these with a password available for US$14.95, as explained on the download page and at the end of the free pages.  The titles and illustrations for these extra chapters are:


1.6. More polygonal-number pyramids

Figure 8: Apex of pentagonal- number pyramid, with prime- solid diagonal strings

Figure 9: Apex of hexagonal- number pyramid with diagonals and prime- free columns

Figure 10: Apex of heptagonal- number pyramid, and its prime- solid diagonals 

Figure 11: Apex of octagonal- number pyramid, with strings of twin prime centers

Figure 12: Apex of nonagonal- number pyramid

1.7. Structures of polygonal- number pyramids

1.8. Prime- rich columns in the first two polygonal- number pyramids

Figure 13: Patterns in the gaps between the primes of the triangular- number pyramid column at 7.  Earlier column members return in a double cascade as factors in later ones.

Figure 14: Gaps between primes in the Euler Column under five, their composition from earlier primes, and their progression of "guest factors"

1.9. Prime- escorted triangular numbers as prime producers

Table 2: Curious connections between the triangular- number and square- to- square number pyramids

1.10. Last digits predict prime densities

1.11. Some prime- solid string lengths

1.12. A facet of Eulerís genius

1.13.  The Euler Pillar centered in the square- to- square number pyramid

1.14. The prime calendar-clock for Sol III

(An abbreviated version of this chapter is posted here as "Prime calendar")

Figure 15:  The upper clock- face of the "number calendar" centered in the square- to- square number- pyramid array

Figure 16:  The lower clock- face of the "number calendar"

1.15. Numerical perfection for our planet
