Description: A domain created as a home for the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS). Mersenne primes are named after the French monk Marin Mersenne. The goal of the search is to find ever larger Mersenne primes. You can join this search by downloading the free software provided and checking out a range of Mersenne numbers to test, or monitor the status of the search. In his day, Marin Mersenne acted as great facilitator among the mathematicians and scientists of his day. In his honor, Woltman is also collecting links to math and science projects (pi, cryptography) that you can participate in.
