Title: The prime number filtrate or An easy way to find primes (sort of) or The prime distribution revealed (somewhat)
Speaker: Frank Ryan (Case Western Reserve University, 1967-1971)

Abstract: A fervent attempt is made herewith to dismantle the aura of doubt surrounding the how, why, and wherefore of prime number distribution. But, due to inevitable deep weeds encountered among the prime numbers, the battle is on but with no end in sight, commiserate with the infinitude of our target. Nevertheless, some of the major twists and turns of the distribution will be addressed, with food for all that find comfort among the integers.
