Boooooooom!!
122*18^292318+1 is 3PRP! [url]http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=90343[/url] NO k remaining for Sierp b18! Target destroyed! :bounce: :curtisc: :george: :joe o: Theoratically, because: I still have k=18 and k=324 on my list, but I was told, that it is not necessary to test them, because k = base. Is this still correct? I think, this are 23 extra beer this weekend :smile:

A tremendous prime and it is the largest prime EVER to prove a base eclipsing Rogue's Sierp base 11 prime by a moderate margin. It is also CRUS's largest prime to date narrowly edging out Chris's recent Riesel base 6 prime...that is until Serge submits his recent Riesel base 6 prime. In a span of 5 days, CRUS has found its 3 largest primes, all in excess of 350,000 digits and all in order of size within 20,000 digits of each other. So technically we broke our own size record 3 times. Congratulations Daniel on a tremendous effort and proof. :george::george::george::george::george: To make it mathematically "official", within the next 23 weeks, I'll construct a list of all primes for all proven bases where the final prime was n>10K. Prof. Caldwell will be extremely happy to hear of all of these Sierp conjecture proofs for bases <= 100. Iirc, we've now proven Sierp bases 18, 57, and 99 over the last 23 weeks. His published math paper dealt with all Sierp bases <= 100. After an extremely long drought on proving any of them, we've taken out 3 in short order! Congrats again to Chris, Serge, and Daniel on recent huge CRUS primes! Daniel, you are correct. k=18 and 324 do not need a prime because they are generalized fermat #'s (GFNs). Because they are powers of the base, they could only possibly be prime for n equal to a power of 2...i.e. n=1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc. and most mathematicians agree that the # of primes of GFNs is finite unlike other forms where we believe that the # of primes should be infinite, even if we haven't found a prime up to a high limit just yet. k=1 is also a GFN but it just so happens to have a prime at n=1, i.e. the value of 19. One more thing on GFNs: Note how they differ from multiples of the base, i.e. k=36, 54, 72, etc. Multiples of the base need an n>=1 prime unless they are a GFN. Gary

Congrats on the huge prime!

Way cool! :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :banana: :banana: :banana: It's very nice to see a base <=32 knocked out, that being this project's original scope and the range that's had the most work done. If I remember correctly, our last proof for bases <=32, Sierp. base 11, was more than a year and a half ago.
Now what would be really cool is if my quad turns up a prime on Sierp. base 33 within the next couple of days. :smile: Not quite <=32, but nonetheless it would be a great base to knock out. 
Thank you all for the congratulations :smile:

Just leaves k=404 for R base 23. Easily proven in my lifetime. [SPOILER][SIZE="1"](I'm changing my name to Methuselah.)[/SIZE][/SPOILER]
