COMMENTS

Firoozbakht conjecture: (prime(n+1))^(1/(n+1)) < prime(n)^(1/n), or

prime(n+1) < prime(n)^(1+1/n), which can be rewritten as: [log(prime(n+1))/log(prime(n))]^n < (1+1/n)^n. This suggests a weaker conjecture: [log(prime(n+1))/log(prime(n))]^n < e. - Daniel Forgues, Apr 28 2014

EXAMPLE

Examples for (log(prime(n+1))/log(prime(n)))^n < (1+1/n)^n < e:

(log(3)/log(2))^1 = 1.58... < (1+1/1)^1 = 2 < e;

(log(1361)/log(1327))^217 = 2.14... < (1+1/217)^217 = 2.712... < e;

(log(8501)/log(8467))^1059 = 1.59... < (1+1/1059)^1059 = 2.716... < e;

(log(35729)/log(35677))^3795 = 1.69... < (1+1/3795)^3795 = 2.717... < e.
