I got to thinking. As of today I have hit 31 reported primes out of 27038292 tasks or roughly 1 out of every 87000 tasks.. | |

A general theorem is that the prime density around some number N locally is 1/ln(N) [log natural]. However things can be much more complicated if we are just looking at numbers of a specific form, which this project does. I am pretty sure that there should be infinitely many primes of such form, but the distribution is something beyond my knowledge since I am not a specialist in number theory. [It's even doubtful that such result exists...] | |

Sorry for the bump... I have tried it last time but no success, there must be some code changes and I think the records of these primes are all manual work too. | |
