### Does $\pi$ encode the prime numbers? [on hold]

I have a question regarding whether or not $\pi$ encodes the sequence of primer numbers. It is common knowledge that
$$ \zeta (2) = \sum_{i = 1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^2} = \prod_{p \in \mathbb{P}} ...

### How frequently is 3 a cubic residue mod primes in an arithmetic progression?

Suppose $(a,3q)=1$ and $a\equiv 1\pmod 3$. Are there infinitely many primes $p\equiv a\pmod {3q}$ such that $3$ is a cubic nonresidue modulo $p$?
Or, an equivalent formulation using quadratic forms: ...

### Finding a suitable number

Let $n,m$ be two positive integers. By $r_n$ we denote the largest prime not exceeding $n$. If $r_n\leq m\leq n$ and $q$ is the largest prime factor of $n!/m!$ such that $q\geq 17$ and $q\geq n-m+3$, ...

### Principally split primes with factors in arbitrarily small angular sectors

I wonder if the following is known:
let $n$ be a (square-free) positive integer. Is there ever/always a sequence of prime numbers $p$ that can be written in the form $$p = x^2 + ny^2,$$ where
$x, y$ ...

### For what subsets S of (Z/nZ)* is there a Euclidean proof that there are infinitely many primes whose residues lie in S?

For small values of $n$ and $(a, n) = 1$ it is sometimes possible to give an elementary proof that there are infinitely many primes congruent to $a \bmod n$ along the lines of Euclid's classic proof ...
