      Hello Patrick,
      My guess is that many polynomials of degree 3 and up will be found
      which yield over 40 positive and distinct prime numbers in a row. But
      if the coefficients are made to equal one, like x^3 + x^2 + x + t, I'm
      guessing that none will beat Euler's x^2 + x + 41.

      From Kermit < kermit@... >

      In order that x^3 + x^2 + x + t not have any positive prime factors < 43,

      t must be

      2 mod 3

      and

      3 or 4 mod 5

      and

      2 or 5 mod 7

      and

      2 or 3 or 7 or 9 mod 11

      and

      3 or 5 or 9 or 11 mod 13


      and

      2 or 5 or 7 or 8 or 10 or 13 mod 17


      and

      3 or 4 or 7 or 9 or 12 or 13 mod 19

      and

      3 or 4 or 5 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 16 or 22 mod 23


      and

      2 or 5 or 8 or 9 or 13 or 14 or 17 or 20 or 24 or 27 mod 29

      and

      2 or 10 or 13 or 14 or 16 or 19 or 24 or 27 or 29 or 30 mod 31

      and

      2 or 4 or 7 or 10 or 14 or 18 or 19 or 24 or 25 or 29 or 33 or 36 mod 37

      and

      3 or 4 or 7 or 10 or 12 or 15 or 16 or 24 or 25 or 28 or 30 or 33 or 36 or
      37 mod 41
