Hello..i've got a question that will seem "strange" or perhaps trivial... why are primes so important in Number theory or in maths?..there're many primality tests but my question is ..do real primes have any importance in real life?.... in fact if we knew the generating sequence of primes so [tex] a(n)=p_{n} [/tex] n-th prime...we could perform every sum over primes and similar..but do primes have any "secret" interest to mathematician, or are they involved in code-breaking ?..thanks.
