Sieve

  • Definition: A process of successively crossing out members of a list according to a set of rules such that only some remain. The best known sieve is the sieve of Eratosthenes for generating prime numbers. In fact, numbers generated by sieves seem to share a surprisingly large number of properties with the prime numbers.
