**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*

For an interior made exterior

And the poet’s *search* for the same exterior made

Interior: breathless things broodingly abreath....”

—Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

“We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed, destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable terror. It is fantasy, served out in large rations by the popular arts, which allows most people to cope with these *twin* specters.”

—Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

“Vanessa wanted to be a ballerina. Dad had such hopes for her.... Corin was the academically brilliant one, and a fencer of Olympic standard. Everything was expected of them, and they fulfilled all expectations. But I was the one of whom nothing was expected. I remember a game the three of us played. Vanessa was the President of the United States, Corin was the British *Prime* Minister—and I was the royal dog.”

—Lynn Redgrave (b. 1943)
