MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The website http://www.trnicely.net/gaps/gaplist.html contains a long list of maximal and nonmaximal prime gaps. In this list, the largest maximal prime gap is one of length 1476:

Size: 1476

Gap Start: 1425172824437699411

1476* CFC TOeSilva 2009 35.31 19 1425172824437699411

My question is if there are more updated lists of maximal prime gaps (with larger maximal prime gaps). If this is the case, I would like to know reliable sources for those lists.

Nicely's website says the list was last updated 5 January 2014. Sounds pretty up-to-date to me. –  Gerry Myerson Jan 15 at 2:37
    
Maybe more nonmaximal prime gaps were added, but I would like to have a list with maximal prime gaps that are larger than 1476. –  Juan Jan 15 at 3:04
    
The largest maximal prime gap I see there is still 1476. –  Juan Jan 15 at 3:05

Are you under the impression that new maximal gaps are found every day? Do you have some reason to think some have been found in the last week-and-a-half? –  Gerry Myerson Jan 15 at 3:07
