The TI-83 is a programmable graphing calculator.
Number theorist Paul Erdős lived to be 83 years old.
The number of permutations of the 10 distinct digits taken 9 at a time that are perfect squares. These range from 101242 = 102495376 to 303842 = 923187456. [Beiler]
The cube of 83 (571787) is the smallest case of the concatenation of a pair of 3-digit primes. [Trotter]
83 is the sum of the squares of the first three consecutive odd primes (32 + 52 + 72). [Gallardo]
The exact number of Johnson Solids with no hexagonal faces. [Hartley]
The only prime of the form p^4 + 2, where p is prime. [Firoozbakht]
The first prime in the decimal expansion of the Gauss's constant G, defined as the reciprocal of the arithmetic-geometric mean of 1 and sqrt(2). Note that G = 0.83462684167.... [Capelle]
283-832 is the smallest prime of the form n83-83n. [Patterson]
83 is the sum of the first three primes ending with the digit one. [Sladcik]

Find the average of all primes up to 83 and you'll get the reversal of 83.
The German mental calculator Rüdiger Gamm (1971- ) once demonstrated his ability on an Australian radio show by calculating consecutive powers of 83 in his head without making a mistake. The number 83 had been selected for him randomly.

The optimum temperature (in degrees Celsius) for preparing custards made of one egg, one cup of milk, and one tablespoon of sugar. [Beedassy]
The smallest prime exponent in the size of the free cartesian closed category over 3 objects. 3^83 is thus an upper bound on the number of left-associated formulas in Michael O'Connor's "An Interesting Puzzle in Propositional Logic." [Post]
The dot product of the vector whose components are the 4th row of Pascal's Triangle and the vector whose components are the first 5 primes in order. [Green]
