[quote=rogue;211556]Hey, I thought you said only two per day!!! That looks like three. :smile:

You might also remember me saying that if its 3-4 to complete a grouping of something, then that is fine. :smile:

As for 1 k remaining, although annoying, it's definitely expected especially for bases > ~250. I'd be surprised otherwise. I don't know what others do but in this case, I searched 10 bases at once by n-value for n=5K-25K. I was fairly lucky to find a final prime on 5 of them since they were all b>300. 5 ended up with 1 k remaining. It is a pain to have to sieve them all separately but searching them all at once sure saves a lot of human time. It involves a bit of manual manipulation to get it into the proper PFGW formatted sieve file after sieving all of the bases. Srfile can't bring together multiple bases into one PFGW-formatted sieve file. I personally like searching them all at once upwards by n-value since that finds a prime the most quickly for most of them.

One hint if you search several bases at once, be very careful with the stop-on-prime option. Since many of the k=8 conjectures had k=4 remaining, you certainly wouldn't want to stop-on-prime for k=4. But in this case, since they all had only 1 k remaining, I was able to have it stop when a prime was found for the BASE. Note that that wouldn't work if you had more than one k in some of the bases since you'd miss searching the remaining n's for the k('s) without a prime, but it does work well for a bunch of 1 k remaining bases.

PFGW isn't sophisticated enough to be able to differentiate k=4 on one base from k=4 on a different base within the same search.

Mark, can PRPnet handle searching multiple bases at once? If so, can it stop on prime for a specific k / base combo instead of just stopping when a specific k -OR- a specific base finds a prime? That would be very cool.

Yes, I use it for that frequently. If configured as a Sierpinski/Riesel server, the PRPNet server will stop sending out tests for a k/b/c combination when a prime is found it. Both Sierpinski and Riesel can be mixed in the same server even if the same k/b combos show up for both forms. It was how I distributed base 928 across multiple clients.

There is no way to stop searching if a prime is found for a base (regardless of k and c). Is this is need? If so, I would like to understand it further. If I didn't know any better, I suspect that you would want this for a GFN type search. PRPNet supports such a search, but does not stop if a prime is found for one of the bases.

Cool! No, afaik, stopping when a prime is found for a base would not be needed in PRPnet for our needs. It just came in handy for me on a pure PFGW search on many bases with 1k remaining. It would be handy if PFGW itself could stop on a k/base combo.

On the other topic, please don't "finish up" a group of something several days in a row. (lol, it wouldn't be finishing up a group of something then) If you really are finishing up a group of something, then that's fine. Weekends are very busy in my personal/business life but I have plenty of time for the projects on Monday and Tuesday; the opposite of most people. As an example, I skipped late Fri, all Sat, and most of Sun. updating the pages. I then updated them very late Sun./early Mon. There were already 10-12 new bases plus 3 more that I did. I had to follow up on 2 of them and there was one that was involved with 2 different kinds of algebraic factors. Now there's the added task of running srsieve whenever there is 1 k remaining.

If you guys wanna help me out a little, whenever you post a status on a new base with 1 k remaining, please run srsieve to P=511 for n=100001 to 110000 and let me know how many candidates are remaining. That will be the weight shown in the 1k thread.

Hmm...interesting how just k=4 remains on quite a few of these k=8 conjectures. Is there something special about k=4 that makes it extra stubborn?

[quote=mdettweiler;211791]Hmm...interesting how just k=4 remains on quite a few of these k=8 conjectures. Is there something special about k=4 that makes it extra stubborn?[/quote]

It's 4 times a 4th power, which elimates all n's divisible by 4 on all bases and hence makes them somewhat lower weight. But other than that, no, none that I can tell. Using that logic, k's that are perfect squares on the Riesel side should be much worse since their n's cannot be divisible by 2. But my perception is that Sierp k=4 is worse than Riesel perfect squares and I don't have an explanation of why.

One thing that I did recently is see how many bases <= 1024 have k=4 remaining at n=5K. There were 43 of them. Compare that to the following # of bases remaining at n=5K:

Riesel k=2 25
Sierp k=2 35
Riesel k=4 30
Sierp k=4 43

Riesel k=4 was helped somewhat by having some bases k=4 eliminated due to partial algebraic factors making a full covering set but not that much difference.

The Sierp side is definitely tougher for k=2 and k=4, especially on small-conjectured bases.

Explantion of the elimination of n==(0 mod 4) for Sierp k=4:

4b^4 + 1 = (2b^2+2b+1) * (2b^2-2b+1)

In all cases that I looked at for b<=1024 and k=4, this does not make a full covering set so the searches must continue. Where it does make a full covering set is on bases 55 and 81 for k=2500, which is k=4*5^4. Hence you'll see on the pages that those k's are eliminated.

I see that the untested Riesel thread may have thrown you off there because I still had those 2 as untested. I would suggest double-checking it against the pages before starting a search. The pages should always be within ~2-3 days of up to date. I do my best to keep up with the untested thread but with it sorted by CK, if I forget removing something, there is not an easy way for me to double check myself.

How is k=8 proven composite by partial algebraic factors?

8*863^4492-1 is prime!

Short analysis:
n==(1 mod 2); factor of 3
n==(0 mod 3); algebraic factors because a^3*b^3-1 has a factor of a*b-1

This leaves n==(2 or 4 mod 6) that need to be searched.

The best example for a small n is n=16, which has a 15-digit smallest factor, i.e.:
290,080,942,920,023 *
2,610,619,153,408,518,748,349,564,802,570,449

Typically I do double-check, but I only check the last page in the forum, thinking that previous pages would have posts that you have already handled. In this case I bet that I didn't go back to previous pages to verify that nobody else had worked on them. I'll have to remember that next time.

Just to confirm: Your search limit was n=25K. Is that correct?

David, quick question about these: do the sieve files included correspond with the depth at which the PRP testing was done? I'm running into problems matching up the results with the sieve files and my first guess would be that there've been factors removed since. If that's the case, could you send me the original sieve files at the same depth at which you did PRP testing? Thanks. :smile:

it's complex
i first inputed undersieved files to the server and several times at unknown depths(of testing) used the remove candidates with factors from sieve file feature of prpnet
i can provide the factor files i used to remove the factors
i don't think i have the first set of undersieved files
the reason that i started with undersieved files was that i expected to find some primes(and didn't find as many as i thought(wrongly)) which would speed up sieving lots
AFAIK i have provided the most sieved files that i have with all factors removed
sorry to cause confusion
any idea on how to do this in future?

Ah, okay...no problem. Lennart did the same thing for his S25 ranges and therefore I've sent those on to Gary sorted but not checked against the original sieve file. Normally we'd prefer that factors be removed at definite n-range cutoffs so that we can match things up (to prevent server error and/or human error from causing anything to have been accidentally missed along the way) but in this case it's OK to let them slide since you guys are both pretty familiar with how this stuff works and the chance of error is rather small.

As for how to do it in the future, I can't speak for Gary, but I personally would prefer removing factors at definite cutoffs so that we can make absolutely sure that nothing is missing. Having to forego checking once in a while is OK, but definitely not ideal.

 mdettweiler 2010-04-29 16:02

BTW, if anyone else ends up removing factors throughout like that in the future, please give me a heads-up to that effect when you post your results--it will save me a lot of time in processing to know that I don't have to even try to match up what will surely be a futile endeavor. :smile:

 henryzz 2010-04-29 16:26

I cant see why it wouldn't be possible as long as you have the most sieved sieve file. What you need to do is make sure all the candidates in the sieve file have results not the other way around. I suppose your problem really is that your current script won't do that.

Yes, you're right. I suppose I could write up a script to remove all results from a results file that aren't present in a sieve file, then check what's left with the latest sieve file. However, it does seem like a clumsy workaround to the problem, and it still doesn't solve the problem of when someone sieves throughout and removes n-ranges from the lower end of the sieve file as they're sieved to optimal or tested (as I believe may have happened with Lennart's S25 range, since the 3.6T sieve file he sent me was only for 52K-100K, while for the lower ranges he just had a 1.2T file).

I'll have to do some thinking about how to best deal with this. One possibility I've thought of is to set up a MySQL database in which to put all the results, then have scripts pull them out and verify them as needed. Even though we don't have a whole stats system set up for CRUS at this time, this would still be adequate for processing purposes. The main tricky thing is that I'd have to write a lot of scripts from scratch (since all my scripts now deal with flat text files)--but I think it might be worth it in the long run due to the much greater flexibility of a database. Once it's all set up and the scripts are written, a DB would simplify processing a great deal.

In the meantime, though, I'll go ahead and process your results without checking them. Any solution I come up with to this problem will probably not be available within the next few days. :smile:

Hint: Don't do that! It's dangerous and cannot be subsequently verified if necessary in the future unless you keep the intial sieve file, all factors, and all results, which would be a headache worth of files to keep and match up in the future.

If you're sieving n=1K to 100K, sieve the entire thing to an optimum depth for n=1K-10K, break that off and test, remove k's from the remainder, sieve n=10K-100K to an optimum depth for n=10K-25K, break that off and test, remove k's from the remainder, and do the same for n=25K-50K and then n=50K-100K. (Even if using PRPnet, which will "remember" which k's have primes and so won't test them, you still need to remove them because otherwise, much additional sieving time is used.)

Don't just guess at an undersieve and hope for some primes. If you don't want to spend so much time sieving such a large n-range as n=1K-100K for all k's to an optimum depth for n=1K-10K at first, then sieve only n=1K-25K to an optimum depth for n=1K-10K, break that off and test and then remove k's, sieve, and test n=10K-25K. THEN do a brand new sieve for remaining k's for n=25K-100K and do the final 2 steps above for n=25K-50K and 50K-100K.

In other words, don't remove factors throughout. Pick specific break-off points.

Max, you will need to account for specific breakoff points in sieving. It's a must-have because if people aren't doing it when the high n-value to low n-value ratio is > ~3 to 1 (for anything n>~10K), they are wasting quite a bit of CPU resources. The key that I'm recommending to David here is that the breakoffs be minimized but specific; not at just random points throughout the process.

The method in the 2nd para. above is almost exactly what I do with a small exception: I script everything to n=2500, sieve n=2.5K-25K, break off n=2.5K-10K, etc. and continue as shown above. I usually stop at n=25K but if I was going to n=100K, the 2nd para. above is how I would do it; that is subsequently start a brand new sieve for n=25K-100K. IMHO, there are just too many k's that are eliminated at the very low n-ranges to justify sieving all of them for n=1K-100K at once.

I am ending my effort on this base. If anyone wants a file with the remaining candidates for n < 25000, let me know.[/quote]

Please state your exact search depth. If you'd like for the sieve file to possibly be used in the future, I'll need to post it on the pages. Otherwise I virtually guarantee that it will be forgotten. Please post it here with k's removed that already have primes and with its actual sieve depth in the file. The latter is frequently needed to see if it has been sieved to an optimum depth, which can vary widely with future software and hardware improvements.

Edit: k=4271 and 5534 already had primes at n=9557 and n=9921 respectively. So there are 29 primed k's for the range and 711 k's remaining at n=~17127.

It is with a mild sense of foreboding that announce my intention of attacking Sierpinski base 928 ([URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=207252&postcount=214"]last attempted here[/URL])

There are 686k's remaining at n=10,000, I'm hoping to make that number a little smaller! Initial sieving has commenced, I shall post occasional updates. If people think this is foolhardy, well, that's your prerogative. If you think it's foolhardy, but wish to offer advice, please PM me :) This comes under the heading of extreme whimsy (that and wanting to stop cluttering up the forum with the 1 k-remaining reservations.)

No problem and it's not foolhardy at all as long as you are aware that it will likely take at least a full CPU year to finish. (rough estimate) The only recommendation that I'll give is to put at least a full quad-core on it unless you are very patient. The main thing to be aware of is that base 928 takes much longer to test at the same n-depth than bases in the 200s and 300s.

Many people on the project like to use a personal PRPnet server for this kind and scope of effort. It allows easy management of your cores. Feel free to post questions about it. Mark (Rogue) created it. The latest version seems to work quite well.

BTW, I like your 1k remaining work. That's why we have the thread. Never feel like you're cluttering up the forum with it. :smile:

See [url=http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=209872&postcount=8]here[/url]--I have a standing offer to host private LLRnet/PRPnet servers for anyone interested at NPLB or CRUS (heck, I don't mind even if you want to load in stuff from another project). This can take quite a bit of the hassle out of running a server since I've already got the infrastructure and processes set up so that adding another server over on this end is hardly a big deal. :smile:

Ian,

We didn't really talk about reservations only posts for CK<=200 like this one. This is the one remaining k=8 conjecture.

I'm still assuming that you will handle them, remove from untested thread, do HTML, etc. For a quick reference on the HTML, just do a find on "just started" on the pages.

Seeing as my bases are so small, something like this will probably be done long before I can create a "just started" page.

I'll remove it from the untested thread and make a note to myself to look out for it.

Mark,

As requested in the news thread, when people submit/Email a load of bases with CK<=200, we are asking that they also post which bases they are in these threads, one per line just as Ian has done above so that he doesn't have to do that. If the base isn't proven, then showing search limit and # of k's remaining is also needed for the applicable bases in the post. No more actual detail (primes/which k's are remaining) is needed in the posting.

We're trying our best to spread the work out among everyone here. :-)

Thanks,
Gary
