**What is Project Euler?**

Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems.

The motivation for starting Project Euler, and its continuation, is to provide a platform for the inquiring mind to delve into unfamiliar areas and learn new concepts in a fun and recreational context.

The intent of this thread is to be a platform for OCN users to discuss algorithms, logic, and mathematical theory for solving Project Euler problems. Additionally, I encourage anyone with a particularly elegant or quick solution to share.

If you're unfamiliar with Project Euler, please follow the URL from the above quote. Essentially, it is a collection of math problems that you are challenged to solve with your computer. The Project Euler web site tracks your progress and will award achievement-like awards when appropriate.
