one. Far fewer people are aware of a special group of prime numbers, called Mersenne primes, after
the French monk Marin Marsenne, who discovered them in the 17th century. Marsenne primes take

later finishes preparations at her home in Westminster, she reflects on her younger days, her choice
of husband, and her old female friendships.…read more
