Types of primes searched for.
If I try remembering every type of prime I've searched for, I think I may have searched about.. less than 10 types of primes, the majority being k * n + 1. However, if I were to count every type of (k * n + 1) prime I've thought up of or encountered, I think that would be 4070 types of primes in total. (That is, where n has a special property, for example, n is a factorial number, or a primorial number, or prime power, etc.).
I think about 9095% of my prime searching is k * n + 1. I think I can generalize into two types; 1. k * n + 1 2. General (nonspecial) primes. Last fiddled with by 3.14159 on 20101204 at 02:00
