Greater number of primes doesn't necessarily mean higher score of the circle. Also, below 8300 for the min so far.

Oops. I had hard coded something for the n=7/d=5 case. After changing this, I am getting the following values:
min: 8265 max: 23209 Anyone else getting those values?

I avoided posting the scores since this could make people skip exhaustive search to find the solution.

Just for the fun of it, anybody wants to try coding n = 9, d = 7 and n = 10, d = 8 cases?

min: 117390 max: 194304 And with n = 10, d = 8: min: 1747537 max: 1772281 The runtime was about 13000 seconds for the n = 9 case. For the n = 10 case, I used 4 threads, which resulted in a runtime of 12400 seconds.

Code:
With n = 9, d = 7 I get the following values: min: 117390 max: 194304 And with n = 10, d = 8: min: 1747537 max: 1772281 I need to rewrite Python into Java to be able to compete with your run times. Will post my results when it's done. Send these min/max results to IBM too. Sometimes they award **.

I get the same answers for n = 9, d = 7 and n = 10, d = 8. It is possible to do it with a lot less computation  my single threaded C++ code took about 3.5s for n = 9, d = 7 and about 32s for n = 10, d = 8. Almost all of the time for n = 10 (like 31.9s) was spent generating a list of 8 digit primes.
