An interesting open conjecture asks whether it is possible to walk to infinity along primes, where each term in the sequence has one digit more than the previous. We present different greedy models for prime walks to predict the long-time behavior of the trajectories of orbits, one of which has similar behavior to the actual backtracking one. Furthermore, we study the same conjecture for square-free numbers, which is motivated by the fact that they have a strictly positive density, as opposed…

The authors sharpen a result of Baker and Harman (1995), showing that [x, x + x0.525] contains prime numbers for large x. An important step in the proof is the application of a theorem of Watt (1995)
