I will run 7.0e15 to 7.05e15. These do not appear to be spoken for...

Did you mean prime twins between 85e15 and 86e15? That would be k=14.166666666666667e15 to 14.333333333333333e15 for the program.
But why aiming so high? I mean, it's okay to search a higher range, but the search is easier to handle if k is a multiple of, say, 1e13. On the other hand, a range of 1e15 in terms of k is quite a bite. Just wanted to make sure we are talking about the same numbers. Last fiddled with by mart_r on 20200119 at 16:18

Why so high? I want to stay out of everyone's way because it sometimes is difficult to determine where everyone is. This will take a while. I have it spread across three machines. I hate to guess, but if I had to, late March or early April before this is done. Then again, it may take longer. I am using TwinGaps2. I am unaware of anything more recent. Thank you for your interest, and your reply. .

It sounds as if what you are defining is something that we can name as "maximal merit". I repeat what I said earlier. The definition is, I think, clear. It is not the definition of "maximal merit". What is being described here is,[B] for a prime gap of length x, there is no prime gap of length x or less with a higher merit. [/B}. For a gap of 10 or less, the record merit is 2.06 for the gap following 77. However it is not a "maximal merit" because the gap of 12 at 58 is.

I thought I understood the premise of this, but now I do not think so.
19  17 = 2 and 31  29 = 2. The gap between 31 and 19 is 12. I tried to write a Perl script to do this, but after looking at some robert44444uk posted, I knew I was way off. The script ran without errors, but the results were simply not correct. Oh, well.

Well sure it is 12 but being that 17–19 =3*6+/1 and 29–31 =5*6+/1 The gap is defined as the difference of the coefficients 3 and 5, Thus it is a gap of 2. Makes sense?
