Welcome to the Prime Gen Search ! This project's goal is to find polynomials that take on prime values for the first few values of x.
For info on running PGS, check out https://github.com/ChemicalDevelopment/PGS/wiki/Running

f(x) = 2x + 3, f(x) is prime for x = 0, 1, 2
f(x) = 41 + x + x^2, f(x) is prime for x = 0, 1, 2, ... 38, 39 (Euler)
The above is a very good example of what we try to find here.
The above function is the only quadratic (with all coefficients under 100) that has at least 40 primes in a row!
