floor(i*x) prime for i=1,2,...,n
- Consider the number x=5.8. The integer part of n*x,
floor(n*x), is prime for n = 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. (The
primes are 5, 11, 17, 23 and 29.) If
x = 407874179.888888...
then we have primes for n = 1 through 9. Dickson's
conjecture suggest there ought to be x's which
produce arbitrarily long strings of primes. Does
anyone know what the current record is?
