COMMENTS

27 primes arranged in a 3 X 3 X 3 cube such that the differences between the numbers in the 3 coordinate directions are constants. The 3 constants are 2904, 3150, and 7440.

The arrangement was found in an undergraduate project at Westfield State College by Jeffrey P. Vanasse and Michael E. Guenette, working under the direction of Mathematics Department faculty members Marcus Jaiclin and Julian F. Fleron.
