# Re: Direct calculation of Primes - Possible?

I just listened to McCanney's March 22 radio show. McCanney claims that

the prime numbers form an infinite closed group with the group operator

being simple addition. McCanney also claims that the primes are

symmetric with respect to the 'perfect numbers' which are used to

compute the prime numbers. If I understand him correctly, there are two

papers included in his book. One is highly technical for professional

mathematicians. One is less technical for non-mathematicians. The book

and DVD are aimed at the general public. The first printing of the book

is now sold out.
