In 1983 the prolific conjecturer Paul Erdős posed a math problem: Take any set of numbers you like. These could be the whole numbers from 1 to 12, the first 10,000 prime numbers, or the dates of every birthday in your extended family. Arrange these numbers in a square grid, with your list of numbers arranged both across the bottom and up one side. Then fill in the grid with either the sums or the products of the crosswise pairs.https://getpocket.com/explore/item/how-a-strange-grid-reveals-hidden-connections-between-simple-numbers?utm_source=pocket-newtab I have no idea if this is at all relevant here, but it looks like it could lend itself to a computer project. |

Interesting article. No relation to number fields as far as I can see, but yes it would make a good BOINC project. |
