ABSTRACT
We show that there is no classical regular Sturm-Liouville problem on a finite interval whose spectrum consists of infinitely many distinct primes numbers. In particular, this answers in the negative a question raised by Zettl in his book, . We also show that there may exist such a problem if the parameter dependence is nonlinear.

Let S be a commutative semiring and M an S -semimodule. A proper subsemimodule N of M is called a classical prime subsemimodule, if for any a,b ïƒŽ S and mïƒŽM , abm ïƒŽ N implies that amïƒŽ N or bmïƒŽ N . In this paper we study some basic properties of classical prime...

Consider a sequence of ten consecutive integers of the form {a0, a1,â€¦,a8, a9} with a1, a3, a7, and a9 all primes. Such a sequence is called a prime decade. This article will furnish an overview of prime decades less than ten billion.

The Legendre equation has interior singularities at -1 and +1. The celebrated classical Legendre polynomials are the eigenfunctions of a particular self-adjoint operator in L2(-1, 1). We characterize all self-adjoint Legendre operators in LÂ²(-1, 1) as well as those in LÂ²(-âˆž,-1) and in...

The article focuses on the study by Goldston-Pintz-Yildrim which proved that there are infinitely many primes for which the gap to the next prime is as small as compared to the average gap between consecutive primes. The theorem gathered in the study shows that for infinitely many n the interval...
