The First Occurrence of Large Gaps Between Successive Primes
19. R. P. Brent,
The first occurrence of large gaps between successive primes,
Mathematics of Computation 27 (1973), 959-963.
A table of the first occurrence of a string of 2r-1 composite numbers
between two primes is given for
r = 158(1)267, 269, 270, 273, 275, 276, 281, 282, 291, 294
All such strings between primes less than
2.6 × 1012 have been
accounted for. The computation supports some conjectures on the distribution
of these strings.
