Abstract Mills proved that there exists a real constant A > 1 such that for all the values are prime numbers. No explicit value of A is known, but assuming the Riemann hypothesis one can choose Here we give a first unconditional variant: is prime, where can be computed to millions of digits. Similarly, is prime, with

Abstract It is well known that the arithmetic nature of Mills’ prime-representing constant is uncertain: we do not know if Mills’ constant is a rational or irrational number. In the case of other
Guided by the primes -- an exploration of very triangular numbers

We present a string of results concerning very triangular numbers, paralleling fundamental theorems established for prime numbers throughout the history of their study, from Euclid (∼300 BCE) to
Primes between consecutive powers
This paper updates two explicit estimates for primes between consecutive powers. We find at least one prime between n3 and (n+1)3 for all n ≥ exp(exp(32.9)), and at least one prime in (n296, (n +

Let (ck)k=1∞$(c_k)_{k=1}^\infty$ be a sequence of positive integers. We investigate the set of A>1$A>1$ such that the integer part of Ac1⋯ck$A^{c_1\cdots c_k}$ is always a prime number for every
