https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=132715 is a palindrome. Congrats Serge and Ryan. UTM's Prime Pages parser calculated the decimal digits as 1234568 Last fiddled with by paulunderwood on 20210915 at 11:45

All palindromes of even length (except 11) are composite! Hint: they are divisible by 11

When I was already way into sieving, I thought that I should have picked 1234321 decimal digits length
But it turned out good. With 1234567 digits' dataset the hit came, statistically speaking, very! early. So it was lucky.

The prof has been busy. He fixed the palindrome length and puzzlepeter's arithmetic progression, which comes second on table two of https://primes.utm.edu/top20/page.php?id=14.
Hint: An AP9 could be quite easy to find to make it to the top of table two. For the AP8, I wrote my own GWNUM code which was 15% faster, I think mainly by dropping repetitive evaluations of the primorial coefficient. I'd willing to share it with any interested parties.

Good! Excellent!
Even Kamadasan wrote to him and cc:'d me (as if I could help ). But it is fixed now, cool beans.

So if it is not secret how many candidates was tested before prime appear?

This is an incredible result! https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=132738
But now we have two different record arithmetic progression of 3 elements of 884,748 and 807,954 digits. the other one being. https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=132738 Still these AP3 is truly impressive as the number of digits either is over 70% more than the previous one which was 406,437 digits. Congratulations to Ryan and Serge.
