## Prime numbers : a math question for the pro

 you think "evaluating a polynomial" and "running in polynomial time" are the same

Nope.

It all started with a quadratic equation ,so,something which grows proportionally to the input.
I've then improved my results,well beyond the square root of n.

Anyway,you might think I'm a crackpot (same thing did "that famous mathematician" ,whose bad expectations changed in a few minutes) but I don't even need to open up a google page to tell you n = m^2 takes quadratic time while n=m^n takes exponential time...

I know what I'm doing...

OK, I'm glad to know my fears are not justified.

what do you mean by:

Hey, if you have a good algorithm, publish it in a journal somewhere. Since at that point it will be accepted by computer scientists and mathematicians, I'm sure you can post your results on PF - but I don't know for certain.

 if you have a good algorithm, publish it in a journal somewhere.
I would love to do it,problem is the waiting time...
I'd prefer to "secure it" and disclose it everywhere,for free; I hate when someone makes money out of something they didn't even invent as they just discovered part of the realm of assumptions this universe is made of.

Btw,for the sake of the conversation,I would like to share some crackpot analysis I've made out of my assumptions by playing around with some equations taken from my work. Maybe you(all) have seen them somewhere else , who knows...

Personally,I'm in love with this one

Thoughts are welcome.

P.s. : that pic seems like Sierpinski is gone wild
