Borel-Cantelli gives good intuition for where to start, but the whole point of the paper is that the primes have more subtle behavior than the Cramer distribution would have you believe (which we've...

That case is certain: you can't fit that many primes into a run of 30 except at the beginning. But there are higher cases where the first conjecture says there is a really tight configuration, so...

Grantham has an explicit finite set he conjectures to contain a number which is both a Carmichael number and a Lucas pseudoprime, see A018188 (https://oeis.org/A018188).

It takes me > 10 minutes to test the composites up to 3000. :blush: Perhaps someone else can do better. th2(p)=my(u='u,b=(Mod([1,1;1,u],p)^p)[1,2]); b==subst(b,u,p-u+2)
