person A titan, as defined by Samuel Yates, is anyone who has found a titanic prime. This page provides data on those that have found these primes. The data below only reflect on the primes currently on the list. (Many of the terms that are used here are explained on another page.)

Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
Completed a BSc(hons) in Statistics at the University of New South Wales (Australia) before doing a Graduate Diploma of Computing Studies at the Canberra College of Advanced Education in 1979. Since then have followed a career in computing and only engage in mathematics for fun. Particularly interested in Factorial and Multifactorial primes. Maintain page tracking the status of the search for multifactorial primes Currently searching for primes of the form n!11+/-1 (n=1 to 300000), the next Factorial prime and various arithmetic progressions.
