The Heegner numbers are 1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 19, 43, 67, 163. The elements of have unique factorizations: gives the Gaussian integers; gives the Hippasus integers; gives the Eisenstein integers; and gives the Kleinian integers.


In this Demonstration, the Heegner primes for the field of selected are shown.
