What's next?Hi,
What's next after 11,212+? May I suggest 7,253- and 11,217-? (both easy) 7,253- has been among the first 5 holes in any table for the longest period of time. It first appeared as a 5th hole back in July '98. For a more ambitious project 2,719+ and 2,736+ would be nice. Along with my doing 2,737+ and 2,749+ it would finish all base 2 numbers to 750 bits. :bounce: |

We try not to reserve stuff too far in advance and the current project still has a few weeks to run. I thought Jens Franke was going to do 7,253- but perhaps I misremembered. Sam is well overdue his normal schedule for reminding us who is doing what, so perhaps we should ask him for an update. We don't want to do anything too easy or sieving takes too little time and administrative costs outweigh computational cost. Perhaps a more significant benchmark would be to clear the base 2 tables to 768 bits. Paul |

If you're ever up for a change of pace, the 151 digit cofactor of the 200 digit number 100^99+99^100 is still up for grabs. ECM is complete at the 50 digit level, plus 400 curves at B1=100M. Plus, it'd be interesting to see whether SNFS or GNFS would be better here. Based on GGNFS experience, it seems that the linear SNFS polynomial, 99^20 x - 100^20 would make things difficult.

Greg[/QUOTE] That's an idea! I seemed to have started something with the x^y+y^x prime-finding project. Andrey Kulsha found lots of primes and strong pseudoprimes and began the XYYXF project to factor numbers of this type. (100,99).c151 has been one of his most wanted numbers for a long time now. I'll give it some thought. Paul |

I'm curious... what would be difficult about it? From first inspection, it looks to me like the norms on both sides will be well balanced, the algebraic poly has very nice root properties, the skewness on both sides is close to 1 and even the resultant has a couple of nice small factors. I haven't actually tried sieving, but in theory this one looks like a winner to me... Alex |

"That" being clearing the base-2 tables to 768 bits. There are currently six unreserved numbers in this category. I just asked Sam Wagstaff to reserve 2,751+,c221 (aka the 221-digit cofactor of 2^751+1) for our next project. It has a 221-digit cofactor and so there is a fair chance that we may find a record penultimate factor of well over a hundred digits. We won't start this one until the current number has finished sieving, in perhaps 2-3 weeks. Next in line is yet to be decided, but doing the 153-digit cofactor of 2^760+1 by GNFS has some attraction. Paul |

OK. It would be fun to see a NFSNET GNFS again, I think. Here's the polynomials a quick run with Kleinjungs tools turned up: [CODE]skew: 1496831.27 norm: 4.08e+021 c5: 1860300 c4: -22190654371344 c3: -8418423029876628259 c2: 41938613797493867472132508 c1: 9910997260157184158283808947544 c0: -10607495285858568709187938891462034824 alpha: -6.86 Y1: 508011226531636067 Y0: -155820412163502072585879250581 Murphy_E 3.22e-012 M: 6467723141847565045770368595275819653284432337188636474118541913625083684674764941908019832620889202048853768204112271553122703814378535845220148970745 [/CODE] I used parameters I have extrapolated from the values TK gives in his examples: p=7, n=4.3e21, N=1.07e19 and e=2.25e-12 -- Cheers, Jes |

I just let my home PC (AMD64 3400) loose before [/quote] AMD64 3400?! Now who is cheating? :razz: My machines are practically steam-powered by comparison. No, just kidding, but they are mere Athlon 2500's. [quote] I will gladly do a "real" poly search if you want me to? [/quote] It's by no means certain that NFSNET will do 2^760+1 but even if we don't then we've done a small favour to whoever eventually takes it on. I'm willing to coordinate a search so we're not searching the same ranges. If there are others who are interested in participating, let me know. Jes, perhaps you and I can settle on some parameters to use and start dividing up the search space. I have no experience selecting parameters for a number this large so advice from you or anyone else is heartily welcome. -Don |
