Division theory..and Prime Number theory..
A while ago i hear about finding the division number theory [Tell how a number can be divied be another unmber as a general formula]. And i am wondering if there is a theory "desicovered" the pattern of the prime numbers. Or at least a fixed pattern for predicting some of the prime numbers "i.e. skipping some".

Well there's the logarithmic distribution known as the prime counting function , and there's Mills' Constant and this crazy polynomial (in 26 variables) and a whole bunch more...
But there really is no simple "pattern" to be found among the primes, unless you want to believe nutcase theories like this one.

actually i was thinking that number like pi and e have clearly obious patterns in binary. perhaps theres a pattern to primes in some base too...?
