Status for k=138847

I am continuing this search on this k value because of the prime 138847 *2^12837931 I discovered in April 2003, using the very first LLR version (without IBDWT)! This prime was then the 10th rank in larger known primes. But, in fact, I was then very, very lucky! Indeed, the Nash weight for k=138847 is 29, which correspond to a value of Ck = 0.0476 of the Gallot weight (Cf the paper by Yves Gallot "On the number of primes in a sequence"). Then, it it is interesting to apply the formula given by Yves in page 6 of his work, to compute the expected number of primes found up to exponent N : Pi(N) ~ Ck*log2[(1.5*N+log2(k))/(1+log2(k))] Then, I find : Pi(1400000) ~ 0.80 (but there are 2 primes in this range). Pi (10000000) ~ 0.94 Pi(180000000) ~ 1.13 Pi(360000000) ~ 1.16 The only thing we are sure is 138847 is not a Riesel number, n = 33 and n = 1283793 yielding primes but the chance to find larger primes is rather small... Nevertheless, I hope to be lucky a second time... Best Regards, Jean

So my question is: can for example candidate have weight 30 and still not to produce prime never , or prime exist, but since weight is too low, and position of prime is random, prime cannot be found so quickly.

On the other part, a low weight value for k can be found while there exists a covering set which can be huge, or even, infinite... This possibility remains while no prime are found for this k! Regards, Jean

jocelynl Can I reserve k=1466501(=29*61*829)?
