Thank you ATH for verifying these! I manually entered them (always a little scary) and pushed to the GitHub repository just now (commit 3dfd00de)


I'll update the wiki site on next week

Many many thanks ATH!

My next gaps will be smaller in both number size and gap size.

Couple of updates

Craig did it again! They submitted the fifth largest gap by merit a 38.2 merit record! They now have the 3rd, 4th, and 5th largest merit records!

Martin added three Megagaps (gap > 1,000,000), thanks ATH for verifying these.

We continue to submit new records and improvements at a breakneck pace; 23,130 so far this year! This is more records than we have remaining from 2017 (the highest other year). The average merit of these records is ~22.1! (the median merit of all records is 19.48)

It will be interesting to see how these facts on prime gaps change over the next year:
  • As of the most recent list, the lowest gap size with no known prime pair is 113326.
  • The 10th smallest such gap is 124106
  • The 100th smallest such gap is 137966
  • The 1000th smallest such gap is 156288
  • The 10000th smallest such gap is 198692

I expect the 10000th will soon be over 200000

This was the "most wanted" gap with no known pair of primes!

113326 11.5806 62857*9859#/46410-57330

119222 will now be the smallest missing gap in the table.

Continuing my good fortune - here is the lower prime of the largest merit 30 gap found to date

313842 31.886 343921*9923#/46410-205340

This narrowly beats out Hans Rosenthal's 2015 find:

309030 31.782 1111111111111111111*9787#/(7#*641) - 130308

I have just submitted my first 30 merit gap:
Code:
90240  30.742  47193529 * 2999#/2303070 -50488 to +39752
This knocks two gaps off https://primegap-list-project.github...gh-watermarks/

It is proven that there are infinitely prime pairs whose difference is no greater than 20.
https://arxiv.org/abs/2109.03681

I'm not quite convinced yet, even if I only understand rather little of the paper. Especially, on page 3, the set H = {0, 2, 6, 8, 12, 14, 18, 20} is not admissible. Omit the 14, then it works.
Achieving the result quoted without Elliott-Halberstamm or something similar would be quite big news. Any thoughts?
