On Mullin's second sequence of primes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)

Abstract

We consider the second of Mullin's sequences of prime numbers related to Euclid's proof that there are infinitely many primes. We show in particular that it omits infinitely many primes, confirming a conjecture of Cox and van der Poorten.
