Hi Seth, just to make sure I fully understand this:

I agree with pushing the prime gaps to the repository, but maybe if a new person/collective starts adding prime gaps, a message goes out so those gaps can be verified to see if they are correct?

I am not sure I understand the second option, sorry! But since it probably involves lengthy verification time, I would prefer option 1 with the additional check on new submitters.

Hope this is clear
Kind regards
Michiel

Even if something went wrong there's a nice audit trail of what went wrong An alternative would be that the primegaps website creates Pull Requests (like this one) and I/Rob/Graham hand review them before they are made official. This adds human eye in the process to make sure nothing looks weird, but I feel it's going to be overly burdensome and substantially slow down the time for reporting till they are part of the official record (we can imagine fully automating reporting form Pgsurround.pl in the future if we go with proposal 1) What I'm asking for. 1. A yes or no if both of you are okay if I start submitting records I hand review to the repository 2. A yes or no if both of you are okay with me changing the website to automatically submit records after verification.

We can do something like that. I'll add an email handler to the server so that any new contributor is hand reviewed (this also makes sense given they will need a new line in the credit table)

I'm also added a bunch of checks on submitting to the repository (checking merit and prime digits are correctly calculated, making sure more lines are added than deleted, making sure only one record per gap...) so the database should be even safer.

I'll post something here when I've finished the coding but expect this to go live in the next week!

Just regular primes. I don't think it would be very hard to store other prime gaps.

There are ~100k prime gaps, can you tell me the relative magnitude of other records? How many twin prime gaps? How many other categories might be worth recording (quad primes, quint primes, ...)?

The current first occurence list for twin prime gaps has 4757 entries (at 54.6*1015) and for quadruplet prime gaps 134776 entries (at 5.5*1015).
The number of entries would increase dramatically if the search is continued outside the range for first occurence gaps.

A. Kourbatov has listed maximal gaps for tuplets up to septuplets here
https://arxiv.org/abs/1309.4053
and has even results for gaps in decuplets in the OEIS, for example A202281.

The probabilistic models for studying prime gaps in arithmetic progressions are similar to those for the usual prime gaps, that's why I think they are also quite relevant. My search lists on average a little over 200 entries per common difference q (for even q <= 2690). If this is too much data, one idea would be only to list the maximal gaps for each q, or only the top CSG value as I do in the other thread.

Here's some data as well. Though the site looked different some weeks ago. I'm not sure if the search for narrow admissible tuplets is still active, but here seems to be a contact address if any new results are found.

Code: script/endpoint_test.sh script/endpoint_test.sage These test with sage.is_prime(proof=True), ecpp-dj that endpoints are a deterministic primes. (also runs them through pfgw64 for triple software check) I ran this for all gaps < 10000 and upgraded them to C?C In https://github.com/primegap-list-pro...c9887cb29c86ef I added Code: borderprp_importer.py and am slowly working on checking in some of those records (e.g. https://github.com/primegap-list-pro...dfa51b748b0606) Last fiddled with by SethTro on 2020-10-29 at 08:33
 2020-11-13, 22:33 #31 SethTro     "Seth" Apr 2019 11·43 Posts Somehow a backwards update was committed?!? https://github.com/primegap-list-pro...c158672bL61773 I found the problem, if an update is in the queue another (worse) update can also be added to the queue. I'll have to figure this out. If someone wanted to help out it would be nice to run a script over all the git hub commits and makes sure none of the updates decrease merit.

 2021-03-18, 19:29 #33 CraigLo   Mar 2021 738 Posts Hi everyone. I've been doing some prime gap searches for a couple weeks. Yesterday I tried to submit 2724 28.1621 3808817329*83# + 8863 I got a message in the queue (2724, '3808817329', 'end not prime') Am I doing something wrong or does the code not support positive offsets?
