comment Is there possibly a largest prime number?
I think this a great question. The answer is on Google and Wikipedia and elsewhere, but the explanations you found out there are probably hard to understand. There are some people here who could answer this in really nice, plain, understandable language. +1 for sure.

comment what is the square root of i?
+1 for introducing me to the term "Argand diagrams" which I'd never heard before. I always just heard "representations in the complex plane" or something.

comment How to convert a hexadecimal number to an octal number?
Does this really fall under "number theory"? I thought number theory was all about the values of numbers, not the notation. Maybe I'm being nitpicky, or maybe I'm just totally wrong.

comment Pendulum with moving pivot
Possibly better suited to stackoverflow. Physics/math questions are okay there, as long as they're programming-related, which this certainly is.

comment Is It True that We Can Never Be Sure of Validity of a Mathematical Proof?
Because computers (designed and built by people, running programs written by people) are way less fallible than people?
