If GIMPS Can Find Such a Huge Prime Just think how big a prime PHOTOSHOPS could find!

It came to be the closest pair of consecutive Mersenne exponents. 1.52% apart. In this recent case the difference between the exponents is less tight 4.08%. Previously there have been consecutive Mersenne Prime exponents separated by a smaller percentage. Between the 20th and the 21st Mersenne's exponents 9941 and 9689 the difference was 2.60% The difference between the 46th? and 47th? Primes is 3.55% Quote:

Well... who knows? Maybe even less? We still haven't verified the placement of M46 and M47... they're only tentative. LOL Could find another one somewhere inbetween!
In fact, when I'm not picking up triplechecks to resolve, I thought I'd try and hurry up the countdown to verifying M46's placement.

Note we also beat Clarkson's 2.9M to 3.0M minimum percentage gap. A related post, http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpos...&postcount=513 shows that beating the gap 10 consecutive is .63^10 or 1 in a 100 event. Last fiddled with by Prime95 on 20180105 at 04:21

Based on that, and how many unchecked exponents currently live between 76e6 and 80e6 that end in 17, there are only 412 candidates... exponents that don't have an LL test or factor. There may have been other clues that would narrow it down more, but a pool of only 412 exponents (as of right now anyway) is getting a lot closer. Oh, I forgot, we have PRP results now in that range, and 10 of those candidates have PRP tests, so it's really only a pool of 402 exponents.

Yes, that is even a better example of closeness.
