Odlyzko}, title={Iterated Absolute Values of Differences of Consecutive Primes}, abstract={Let $d_{0}(n) = p_n$, the $n$th prime, for $n \ge 1$, and let $d_{k+1}(n) =  d_{k}(n)  d_{k}(n+1) $ for $k \ge 0$, $n \ge 1$. A well known conjecture, usually ascribed to Gilbreath but actually due to Proth in the 19th century, says that $d_{k}(1) =1$ for all $k \ge 1$. This paper reports on a computation that verified this conjecture for $k \le \pi(10^{13}) \approx 3 \times 10^{11}$. It also discusses the evidence and the heuristics about this conjecture. It is very likely that similar conjectures are also valid for many other integer sequences.}, journal= mc, volume= 61, year= 1993, pages={373380}, mrnumber={93k:11119 } }
