ruzuzu commented on the word 227

"227 is a prime number, and a twin prime with 229 (thus 227 is a Chen prime). 223 plus 4 is 227, so they are cousin primes. 227 plus 6 is 233, making 227 and 233 sexy primes; furthermore, 227, 233, and 239 form a sexy prime triplet.

Since (227 - 1)/2 is 113, also a prime, 227 is a safe prime.

It is also a regular prime. 227 is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part, and also a Gaussian prime. 227 is a Stern prime since it is not of the form p + 2b2."

Methinks that, en espanol, the term "cousin prime" is a redundancy. Now, kissing cousin primes, that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

Think nothing of it. Have you read page 27 of Florence Howe Hall's charming book mentioned over on country frolics yet?

I tried to at the time, but couldn't access it for some reason. Could you supply?
