Bibliography pertinent to discoverers of record prime gaps

Jens Kruse Andersen. See also Andersen's The Top-20 Prime Gaps, the successor to a compilation maintained until February 2004 by Paul Leyland. Andersen's work has also confirmed the certification of a great many probabilistic gaps, as well as the probabilistic validity of many questionable gaps of thousands of digits.

Harvey Dubner and Harry Nelson, “Seven consecutive primes in arithmetic progression,” Math. Comp. 66 (1997) 1743-1749, MR 98a:11122. Dubner wrote (ca. 1995-96) codes implementing the methods discussed in this paper, and these formed the basis for the codes written by Dubner and Nicely and used in their discoveries of first known occurrence prime gaps (exceeding 1065).
