What requires clarification is the LHS. It is the probability of a shock, namely finding a prime. As it stands it refers to Kieren's DCs. For my LL it would be (1/50)/450,000. Merry Christmas! Last fiddled with by philmoore on 20131225 at 06:17 Reason: Just trying to release from moderation queue

Also, it is not "Probability per day", it is "Expected primes per day" (as in, with really large values, the result can easily be > 1)

The expected primes per day for the whole project is 1/1500. So the probability of one or more primes per day is 1  e^{=1/1500} = 1/1500.5

Perhaps the 0.5 is worth looking into: 1  e^{1/X} ~ 1/X  0.5*(1/X)^{2} = (1/X)*(1  0.5*(1/X)) ~ 1/(X*(1 + 0.5*(1/X)) = 1/(X + 0.5) Wish I had done it that way first time. Damn those calculators D
