Is there a formula to calculate the EXACT number of primes between two integers? There are many very good ways of ESTIMATING the number but I have found very few that give the EXACT number, and those that do essentially require the knowledge of primes before hand (Legendre and Miessel.) While those are all nice I am looking for a formula (not an algorithm) that will spit out the EXACT number of primes by knowing only the two boundaries. Has it been done?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
