What primes are these gaps between? I hope you can figure out the pseudoprimes just above 264 so you can prove that the 1552 and 1572 gaps are really maximal prime gaps.

Prime After Prime

Here is a song called "Prime After Prime". It is a way to recall the first 15 prime numbers. It is sung to the tune of "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper.

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13.

I thought you started at 264 and worked continuously from there. How are you not sure that these are maximal prime gaps? Did you skip any primes?

I find it interesting that the first prime gap of 12 is immediately followed by another gap of 12. The first gap of 12 is between 199 and 211, and the next prime after 211 is 223. Are there any...

Congratulations on finding another gap! It is amazing that there are so many maximal prime gaps so logarithmically close to the binary round number 264.

Why I am underwhelmed by the last few maximal prime gaps

2^64 is not a big number!

We have searched all primes up to 264=18446744073709551616, but that is not a big number. If something had 264 atoms in it, then it would be like a small grain of sand. 264 is a small number when it...
