OPN Project Roll Call
Just checking to see if anybody is still working on the Odd Perfect Numer factoring. I haven't heard from William lately, and apparently neither have several others. I thought a good first step may be to find out who is still working on these factorizations.

I still run a few ECM curves from the Composites Page and a NFS job ever once in a while.

I did notice [URL=""]this post[/URL] from him a few days ago. I'm guessing he is pretty busy.

I just finished up a C159 recently (see the factor thread). Once I get my Christmas components put in this weekend (helloooooooo Ivy-bridge-E and DDR2133 :D), I may work on some more.

I'm working on the SNFSable small composites in factordb. Which will include quite a few from OPN. Also the Brent tables which also include some OPN related numbers.

I just noticed the website [url][/url] has gone away. The latest snapshot from the [url=*/]Way Back Machine[/url] is February 2 of this year. I haven't heard from William in a number of years.

I've been working on and off with Pascal Ochem. He was doing some work over here:

I haven't been able to help out the past few months (long story), but if you ask Pascal may have some composites lying around. I think he's still working on a proof that an OPN>10^2000

I have grabbed a subset from the MWRB file which meets the conditions: weight > 600 & SNFS difficulty is roughly between 210-250. That list is nearing completion. I have also done all the numbers in t600 that would fit into the 14e (NFS@Home) queue as a 31-bit job or less. I would send the number first to yoyo@home then off to NFS@Home if applicable. I would also grab a few higher SNFS difficulty numbers which have a high weight, say > 20K. Many of the latter yoyo would find a factor and very few made it to the 15e queue.

On my personal hardware I run SNFS jobs from the txxxx files mostly of the form p^5-1 and p^7-1. I'm up to SNFS-184 I believe.

I'm factoring composites from the MWRB file in SNFS difficulty order regardless of weight. There are no composites left with difficulty under 200 digits.

What's MWRB?
