Complete Exposition of Non-Primes Generated from a Geometric Revolving Approach by 8x8 Sets of Related Series, and thereby ad negativo Exposition of a Systematic Pattern for the Totality of Prime Numbers

Authors: Stein E. Johansen

We present a certain geometrical interpretation of the natural numbers, where these numbers appear as joint products of 5- and 3-multiples located at specified positions in a revolving chamber. Numbers without factors 2, 3 or 5 appear at eight such positions, and any prime number larger than 7 manifests at one of these eight positions after a specified amount of rotations of the chamber. Our approach determines the sets of rotations constituting primes at the respective eight positions, as the complements of the sets of rotations constituting non-primes at the respective eight positions. These sets of rotations constituting non-primes are exhibited from a basic 8x8-matrix of the mutual products originating from the eight prime numbers located at the eight positions in the original chamber. This 8x8-matrix is proven to generate all non-primes located at the eight positions in strict rotation regularities of the chamber. These regularities are expressed in relation to the multiple 112 as an anchoring reference point and by means of convenient translations between certain classes of multiples. We find the expressions of rotations generating all non-primes located at same position in the chamber as a set of eight related series. The total set of non-primes located at the eight positions is exposed as eight such sets of eight series, and with each of the series completely characterized by four simple variables when compared to a reference series anchored in 112. This represents a complete exposition of non-primes generated by a quite simple mathematical structure. Ad negativo this also represents a complete exposition of all prime numbers as the union of the eight complement sets for these eight non-prime sets of eight series.
