- - **Progress of n^41+/-1**
(*https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23785*)

Progress of n^41+/-1I noticed that all number of the form n^41-1 with n<6600 are fully factored. The smallest n been unfactored is n=6697 with an C128 cofactor.
I also noticed, that n^41+1 is much less factored, [STRIKE]only up to n=1100 are all numbers FF. The smallest n been unfactored is n=1109 with C122 cofactor[/STRIKE]. Between n=1000 and n=1500 are all numbers FF. Going up to n=2000. [STRIKE] I´ll at least pretest these numbers and list them here[/STRIKE]. From time to time I´ll take them down. Please note: Slow progress. :smile: |

Between n=1000 and n=1500 are 18 numbers not fully factored. I´ll at least pretest these numbers and list them here.

All of my resources for factoring are used for FDB (90 dd up to 99 dd). When I´m done with that range I´m able to switch to something else. For now I´m just pretesting with one core. That takes ~4 hours/canidate (at C125). |

4 hours or 4 minutes? 4 hours is way too much. Like I said, these are SNFS - actual SNFS will be much faster, I think. |

ECM pretest takes ~4 hours. The C122 took 50 minutes to complete, with 1 core. :) |

[QUOTE=MisterBitcoin;499805]ECM pretest takes ~4 hours.
The C122 took 50 minutes to complete, with 1 core. :)[/QUOTE] Why would you spend 5 times the SNFS factoring time on ECM? What polynomial are you using for SNFS? Something like 100 curves at B1=50k is enough. |

The C122 took 50 minutes to complete, with 1 core. :)[/QUOTE] Seconded - pretest should amount to ~10% of the cost of honest factoring or less. Also, with a snfs polynomial this jobs will take a couple minutes, not 50! Are you factoring them as gnfs? |

The latest number (C123) took ~13 Minutes to finish using 6 threads. Log attached. I´m using factmsieve.pl und the poly from factordb (These are not perfect, but they work :smile:). I used a pretest level of t38, looks like its a bit to much. |
