GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 2^{82589933}1 (24,862,048 digits) We define p# (pprimorial) to be the product of the primes less than or equal to p. For example:
It is customary to only apply the notation p# to primes p, but some authors will apply it to any positive real number (e.g., 10.72# = 2^{.}3^{.}5^{.}7 = 210). When viewed this way, the function log(x#) is Tschebycheff's function, and the prime number theorem is equivalent to the expression log x# ~ x,(i.e., (log x#)/x approaches 1 as x approaches infinity.)
