Abstract

This article brings together three seemingly disparate fields of mathematics: 1) prime numbers; 2) base 6 numbers; 3) helix. From a simple sieve of Eratosthenes, based on the base 6 numbers, you go to a three-dimensional structure of the helix, by rolling the plane.

Keywords: primes, base 6 numbers, prime numbers, helix, Eratosthenes, sieve, 3D plane, 2D plane, petrus bungus, Numerorum Mysteria 1599, Formulario Matematico 1908, Giuseppe Peano, plane quotienting, cilinder
