Twin Prime Search

Twin Prime Search (TPS) is a distributed computing project that looks for large twin primes. It uses the programs LLR (for primality testing) and NewPGen (for sieving). It was founded on April 13, 2006 by Michael Kwok. It is unknown whether there are infinitely many twin primes.

Famous quotes containing the words search, twin and/or prime:

    Professor Eucalyptus said, “The search
    For reality is as momentous as
    The search for god.” It is the philosopher’s search

Vanessa was the President of the United States, Corin was the British Prime Minister—and I was the royal dog.
