Was it to turn up hidden treasures, it would be named at that point.

This would be a good spot to put in a statement of the k-tuple conjecture.

BTW proving my p^p%10^n sequence infinite might instead be a step
toward proving your k-tuple conjecture.

"My" k-tuple conjecture? I'm neither Hardy nor Littlewood.

I quite doubt that proving your sequence infinite would help prove the k-tuple conjecture.

Could you put a re-phrasing of the k-tuple conjecture here?

Thanks. That animated google intro made me chuckle.

Now I have some data on prime constellations, the HL conjecture,
and twin primes. Did Dirichlet anticipate the HL k-tuple conjecture?

Hardy-Littlewood conjectures -- there were quite a few.

Good question; I don't know the answer.

Well, at some point you might expand on your suggested application
of that theorem or theorems to help elucidate this thread's questions.

While proving a few such important sequences infinite might help us
triangulate on the keys - the k-tuples, and the mersennes.

Is that blind faith, or do you have some reason for this belief?
