Clock Design for Zeta Zeros Mechanic Calculator

  1. Feb 15, 2009 #1
    I first met with the prime numbers problem at a greek novel and than I interested with the works of Cahit Arf.

    Please correct me , Zeta Function Zero is a proof to tell , there is a mechanical relation at all prime numbers , and there is a regularity.

    If this is correct , it would be very exciting to do this math at a mechanical desk clock .

    I read Alan Turing paid by the britons to build 2000 dollars worth of mechanical calculator.

    What do you think ? How one could put such a mechanical calculator in to a very
    small area ?

    Best ,

    I have no idea how you are conecting the zeta function with a clock. Could you give more details?
