GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 282589933-1 (24,862,048 digits)

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.)
