### Abstract

Cover illustration: The cover shows a magnified view—through a watchmaker’s loupe—of a very small portion of an actual poster giving the 7.2 million decimal digits of the prime 2 24036583-1. Ifthe entire one-meter tall poster were thus magnified, it would be the size of a baseball diamond.
