A038458 Decimal expansion of the solution to 127^x - 113^x = 1, sometimes called the Smarandache constant. This is the smallest x such that q^x-p^x=1 for two successive primes p,q. 5

COMMENTS

Generalizes Andrica's conjecture p(n+1)^(1/2)-p(n)^(1/2)<1 to p(n+1)^c-p(n)^c<1 if c is less than this number.

Is this constant rational or irrational? I conjecture it is irrational. - Sukanto Bhattacharya (susant5au(AT)yahoo.com.au), Apr 28 2008

The first five digits are the same as the first five of A030178 = LambertW(1). - John W. Nicholson, Dec 11 2013
