Existence of polynomials of degree $\geq 2$ which represent infinitely many prime numbers
@MicahMilinovich, how does one deduce that from Baier & Zhao's result? To the best of my knowledge, these results typically require that the number of polynomials in the family increase with other parameters in the average and thus do not imply asymptotic statements about any single (even a typical) polynomial. This is analogous to the fact that while Bombieriâ€“Vinogradov is an averaged form of the RH, B-V does not imply that the RH holds even a single L-function. |

Steinhaus's Easter Egg Problem
Thank you, both. I'm a bit unclear on how exactly to make sense of the question as translated. Can anyone offer a clear interpretation of this? |

Primes and Parity
(cont) If one could do (and efficiently construct) this for a collection of APs of size, say, $n^{1/100}$ then it would solve the problem. It might be possible to probabilistically show the existence of such as collection. That wouldn't solve the problem on its own, but it would reduce the question to one of pseudo-randmness and not number theory. On the other hand, my intuition here isn't great and it might well be possible that such a collection can't exist. |

Primes and Parity
Gil: yes, that is what I was thinking. I'd like to find a small collection of APs such that at least one is guaranteed to intersect any set (with certain properties which we can prove about the primes; size/density might be sufficient) in a set of odd parity... |

Primes and Parity
A somewhat different question related to getting around the $\sqrt{n}$ barrier is the following: First recall that the Polymath4 result allows one to compute the parity of primes in an arithmetic progression intersecting [n,2n] "efficiently" (in time $n^{1/2-\delta}$ for some small $\delta$). Consider a subset $A \subseteq [n]$ of density $n/\log(n)$. What is the smallest collection of arithmetic progressions such that at least one is guaranteed to intersect $A$ with odd parity? More generally, it would be nice to reduce the problem to something not explicitly involving primes. |
