COMMENTS

This constant is similar to Mills's constant (where floor(x^(3^n)) is always prime). I've calculated it all by myself and I never heard of it before. I can't even prove that it exists, but after my calculations, it is most likely. It definitely starts with these 43 decimal digits. Does anybody know if anyone calculated this before?

There should be infinitely many constants such that floor(p# * C) is always prime, but the range in which these numbers appear is extremely narrow and every such constant would start with these 74 decimal digits.

EXAMPLE

If the constant 1.2541961... is continuously multiplied by the prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 ..., then floor(x) is always prime (i.e., 2, 7, 37, 263, 2897, ...).
