In 2016, two mathematicians, Kannan Soundararajan and Robert Lemke Oliver found that the prime numbers do not occur at random when looking at the final digits of subsequent primes. For instance, a prime ending in 9 is more likely to be followed by a prime ending in 1, than any other digits (1, 3, 7 […]

## Plotting Successive Primes Modulo A Number

tl;dr: https://github.com/ology/Math/blob/master/primes/sequence-pairs File this under Recreational mathematics… I have this passionate curiosity for seeing the primes “folded in on themselves” – constrained to a phase space. I also have a burning desire to visualize successive events. I suppose that I am searching for “strange attractors”, as with the famous water drip […]

## Primes, Gaps & Gaps of Gaps

tl;dr: Code and Visualization of the prime “gaps of gaps” table The prime number sequence fascinates me. I am not sure why but exposing properties in it is exciting. Even if they are mundane and “obvious to everyone else”, the fact that I can answer questions visually, sometimes thrills me. * Update below
