The distribution of prime numbers is one of the greatest mysteries in modern mathematics. We use prime numbers and a process called factorization to secure all our data in the digital world. However, if someone manages to discover the distribution of these numbers, they will decrypt our entire banking system in minutes.
We do not know what the regularity behind the distribution of prime numbers is. Is it a hidden formula for their arrangement? However, there are some intriguing curiosities behind it that can be treated as art with a deep mathematical background. One of them is the set of prime numbers presented in graphic form and called the Ulam Spiral, discovered by the Polish mathematician Stanisław Ulam. It was popularized soon after under Martin Gardner's "Math Games" column in Scientific American.
When designing this poster, we would like to give you the opportunity to experience the beauty of prime numbers in your home and inspire you to search for them further, and who knows ... perhaps to solve this mathematical puzzle. To make them unique, we designed posters in three different sizes that contain different amounts of prime numbers. Using our extremely accurate printer, we were able to prepare the poster in such a way that the largest version covers the numbers up to 12.5 million..
It is highly nerd stuff but we love it and we hope that you will love too!
Our poster is very great idea for a gift for any math geek :)
Poster is designed and available in 3 different sizes which covers different area and contains different amount of prime numbers :
• 50x50 cm covers prime numbers from 1 to 2 999 824,
• 70x70 cm covers prime numbers from 1 to 5 958 481,
• 100x100 cm covers prime numbers from 1 to 12 552 849.*
