DHS170A For any given factorial n! greater than 4!, let v be the valuation of prime factor q of n!, where q >=5
Then we know that one of the (n! +/ q^v)/(q^v) will have a valuations of q that is 0 and the other will have a valuations of q that is greater than or equal to 0. Other than for q (for perhaps only one of the pair) the expressions will have no other common prime factors with n!. Tobecontinued ...

DHS180A For any given factorial n! if (n! +/ k)/(k) are both positive integers which are both coprime to n! & (n! +/ k)/(k) < n^2, then (n! +/ k)/(k) are twin primes

DHS200A Any given pair of twin primes q & p where p = q+2 can be expressed as (n! +/ k)/(k) for infinite integers n such that:
n >= r where r is the greatest prime factor of (q+1) & k = n!/(q+1) It follows that there are infinite (not necessarily distinct) twin primes of the form (n! +/ k)/(k) Tobecontinued ... Last fiddled with by a1call on 20200520 at 04:25

A 79820 dd Prime example found using PFGW:
(20577!2652)/2652 Currently waiting for FactorDB to process the number. Stay tuned if not done. Last fiddled with by a1call on 20200530 at 22:44

Thank you Paul. I know it is small potatoes, but the size would be a top 10 (20 counting twins as double) if it were a twin prime which is what I am aiming for.
I have a virtualbox instance which I run on 4 cores when I can, so in a few months who knows. Keeps me dreaming.
