When I saw this I was excited at first, but seeing how it's that close to PRPnet's wavefront makes me a bit suspicious...

https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=133139

Of course Factorial primes aren't exclusive to PRPnet, but it still makes a not-so-good impression.

Some observations I also did on Discord:


  • Same user (p3 : Dohmen, OpenPFGW) also found the previous n! + 1 prime ahead of PrimeGrid, more than 10 years ago
  • PrimeGrid also missed the most recent n! - 1 prime in 2016; PrimeGrid's factorial list
  • The Top Twenty: Factorial Primes will now finally be full; 20 primes of type n! + 1 or n! - 1 with at least 1000 digits

I'm not sure if it's in some way "unfair" or not. One thing would be that his negative results aren't published whereas PRPnet's are. But unless he has serious computational power the few negatives he produces wouldn't have helped PRPnet that much.

If he works fully independent, I'd have no problem, after all nobody owns Factorials, but if he uses PRPnet to some extent - and him being that close to the edge make it seem like it - that would be like poaching. Does anyone know if he's involved somewhere like Mersenneforum?

It appears his previous prime was in August 2012. It seems he has not found primes together with collaborative projects like PrimeGrid, No Prime Left Behind, Conjectures'R'Us, or similar. /JeppeSN

It makes me wonder if he grabbed has the file of candidates (post-sieving) generated by PrimeGrid. There is no mention of other software, but trial division alone would leave a lot of candidates that sieving would eliminate. It is possible that he has his own sieving software, but as I said, there is no mention of it. There are not many participants on PrimeGrid's Factorial search in PRPNet, so if he has many cores, it isn't unreasonable for him to find it first.

This prime, 288465! + 1, is exactly the one the initial post in this thread was about. I can repeat the link Factorial Top Twenty where the largest known instances can be seen. The leading edge of our search can be seen on Factorial Prime Search - Server Statistics.

There are two known factorial primes ahead of us. It is possible (but unknown) that the entire range from our current leading edge up to n=422429 and beyond are already fully searched by people not going through PrimeGrid.

I am not sure if the 1 hidden prime on the User Primes should be "processed" somehow. It may be an idea to remove 308084! + 1 and 422429! + 1 from the "backlog" of PRPNet candidates; then they should not become "hidden primes" in the future.
