I presume you mean
If you're capable of making a poster with 9,808,358 digits, then 58,711 digits is utterly trivial. They could even print both twins on the same poster. Last fiddled with by jinydu on 20070116 at 03:42

I emailed Chris Caldwell about the discovery and requested the project codes for TPS and PrimeGrid.
Rytis: For the next n, our primes will be big enough to get into the top 5000 primes list. Will PrimeGrid submit those primes automatically, or will the finders have to submit their primes manually onto the site?

Here is one version of the poster on 2 pages in A3 format, in 8pt Ariel Narrow. It fits nicely. After the print out, cut the top margin on page 2 and paste it at the bottom of page 1. All margins are 12mm (1/2 inch) and can be printed on any A3 printer.
BTW, digits can be produced effortlessly using PARI/GP Code:
p=2003663613*2^1950001; write("p58711.txt",p); Last fiddled with by Kosmaj on 20070116 at 05:14

MoooMoo, or anyobdy else, if you have time, could you write a small paper (1 or 2 pages) describing our project and our discovery, putting some data in it (how many users, how many primes found before twins, probability, etc) ?

Maybe you can send a brief announcement to the NMBRTHRY list.
But in any case: Congratulations to the discoverers and all project participants! Alex Last fiddled with by akruppa on 20070116 at 09:43

No, I meant the other twin.

Gratz on the great discovery!

What is the formula for these probabilities for different n's?

I've used twin prime conjecture to estimate what is the probability that a large random b,b+2 is a twin prime. Here it is the fast PARI program:
Code:
T=4.0;forprime(p=3,10^5,T*=(p2)/p/(11/p)^2);p=T*(333333*log(2))^2;\ forstep(i=5,100,5,print("k=",i," G ","chance of finding a twin:",\ 1(1p)^(i*10^9/2))) Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20070117 at 01:16
