New factorial prime
 
A new factorial prime was [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=133139"]recently reported[/URL] (not yet validated):

288465! + 1

It is very close to the PRPnet search wavefront, is that a coincidence?

Congrats to PrimeGrid for the [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=133193"]"321" prime 3*2^18196595 - 1[/URL] (5,477,722 decimal digits, rank 20) :banana:

Sniped again! Congrats to Ryan Propper for the [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=133196"]factorial prime 308084! + 1[/URL] (1,557,176 decimal digits) :banana:

Great to see such progress on the Factorials. Apparently there were so few over the years because few people were working on them. I still think it'd be nice if the work was organized so ranges aren't done twice or thrice, which might well be the case now.

Don't know who else out there is working on these, but I've sieved (and plan to test) n! ± 1 for 300,000 <= n <= 500,000.

Update: I've completed testing/double-checking [$]n!-1[/$] and [$]n!+1[/$] for [$]150000 \le n \le 330000[/$] and can confirm the only primes are the 4 [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/top20/page.php?id=30"]known[/URL] as of Jan 2022:

[CODE]308084! + 1
288465! + 1
208003! - 1
150209! + 1[/CODE]

Continuing on up to [$]n=500000[/$].

I suppose that PrimeGrid's factorial sub-project is defunct now, unless they start at n=500000 :wink:

ryanp 2022-02-11 21:00

Update: search limit for [$]n! ± 1[/$] is now at [$]n=400000[/$].

New [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=133604"]factorial prime[/URL] from Mr. Propper, this will take a while to verify.

Will there ever be an Official Announcement?
