Primax 2020
International Math Competition

Acta Mundi and the Changing World announce the PRIMAX 2020 international mathematics competition, subject to the following conditions. 1. The aim of the annual competition is to encourage the study of prime numbers and the research related to them. The competition takes place in different categories. Some of them are constant and others vary from year to year. 2. The purpose of constant categories is to find closed univariate formulas that give a maximum number of prime numbers if they take variable natural numeric values. Currently, we record POLn, XE, XD, and XDE categories (POLn is an ndegree polynomial, XE is a formula in which the variable occurs in the exponent, denominator, or both in the formula. 3. An applicant may apply in any, or all, categories, but with only one formula within a category. 4. The submitted formulas must be submitted in an Excel spreadsheet. 5. This year's special topic: hypotheses about prime numbers. Each hypothesis must be accompanied by an example and a comment in which the applicant indicates whether the hypothesis is known or new. Applications must be sent by email by 1 December 2020 in English, French, Hungarian or Bulgarian to More detailed information and help can be requested at the same place if required. There is no application fee, the winners will receive a diploma.
