Using Waves to determine Primes, Composites, Number's Factors, and their Distributions.
William R. Blickos


This paper provides a method using periodic functions to check for primality, count factors, list factors, calculate the prime distribution, and determine the Nth prime. It describes this method in a straightforward manner, from one equation to the next, using graphs between each key step to help quickly visualize the reasoning and result of each maneuver. It concludes with brief afterthoughts and ongoing questions about the technique.

I'm looking for feedback on the paper, and especially in regards to the topics addressed in the afterthoughts section. Thanks for looking.
