Title: Primes in arithmetic progression

Abstract: While it is easy to see there are infinitely many prime numbers, determining the number of primes in an arithmetic progression a, a+q, a+2q,… with (a,q)=1 is challenging. We will investigate such arithmetic progressions to determine how many prime numbers it contains.
