[QUOTE=TheCount;394896]Worth a try. I'd love to get a GPU sieve for Compositorial. I could have my GPU sieving while PRP testing on my CPU.

fpsievecl? I didn't know you'd extended it to Primorial. If you hadn't yet I would extend to Primorial while adding Compositorial. We can see if it's worthwhile after its implemented.

Is v1.0.8 the latest version? If so I already have it downloaded and know how to fix a bug:

If Compositorial implemented would the new program be called fpcsievecl? I'd add a new GitHub repo.[/QUOTE]

I tried an OpenCL primorial sieve, but the problem with was extra I/O between the GPU and CPU and more global memory access. For compositorial each chunk of work in the GPU would require less I/O as fewer primes would be sent in each chunk than for primorial. As I think about it, it might not be any faster.

[QUOTE=TheCount;394884]

You can use -c option to set the checkpoint period, default is every 5 minutes. Set to 0 if you don't want it to periodically checkpoint.
I wouldn't think writing a checkpoint file would affect performance much.[/QUOTE]

If you re-read my question you will see that I was not asking about the checkpoint file, I was referring to the file listing the eliminated candidates and their factors.

[QUOTE=Antonio;394941]If you re-read my question you will see that I was not asking about the checkpoint file, I was referring to the file listing the eliminated candidates and their factors.[/QUOTE]
Currently when the program finds a factor it prints it on the console window and appends it to the factors file on disk. This will slow the program early in the sieve when lots of factors are found, but its not like it re-writes the whole file each time. It would be faster early in the sieve not to report factors, but if you don't write to disk you'll lose the factor information. I suppose if your only interested in the sieve file then suppressing this output would be useful. From an admin point of view you'd want to still verify the factors found. Later on in the sieve writing to the factor file will make no real difference. Let me know if you still think an option to suppress factor reporting would be worthwhile. Would be easy to implement.

[QUOTE=Batalov;394826]I've briefly searched google for "Daniel Heuer compositorial" and I think some traces (and possibly DH's limits) can be found in the archives of the primeform yahoo group. E.g. [URL="https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/primeform/conversations/messages/3978"]this[/URL] (about C(20493)-1 which you will soon double-check) ...and this appears to be [URL="https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/primeform/search/messages?advance=true&am=CONTAINS&at=email:heuer@&dm=IS_ANY&fs=false&count=1000"]all of his messages[/URL] (API of yahoo groups changed so many times over years; the new API is so inconvenient).

Daniel was active in many curious projects. I stumble over his decade old contributions in many areas.

Maybe Paul has Daniel's contacts? Paul "was always there", as they say.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Batalov;394826]... (about C(20493)-1 which you will soon double-check) ...[/QUOTE]
This did not imply that C(20493)-1 needs a double-check of primality. It was known that it is prime since 2000.
This meant "you will soon double-check its position in sequence OEIS sequence [URL="http://oeis.org/A140293"]A140293[/URL]".

Additionally, if you meant the "Create time : Before March 17, 2011, 12:27 am" in "More information" section, note that all of them have been apparently [URL="http://factordb.com/index.php?query=99998%21%2F99998%23-1"]entered into the factorDB up to 99,999[/URL] very long ago, before Syd started recording insertion dates.

Golden Prime Search
 
OEIS seems to classify:
"-1" forms as "Almost-* primes" and;
"+1" forms as "Quasi-* primes"
[URL]https://oeis.org/wiki/Base-independent_classifications_of_prime_numbers[/URL]

I can suggest the following names:
[CODE]Form Description
n!/k-1 Almost-k divisor-Factorial prime
n!/k+1 Quasi-k divisor-Factorial prime
k*n!-1 Almost-k multiplier-Factorial prime
k*n!+1 Quasi-k multiplier-Factorial prime
n#/k-1 Almost-k divisor-Primorial prime
n#/k+1 Quasi-k divisor-Primorial prime
k*n#-1 Almost-k multiplier-Primorial prime
k*n#+1 Quasi-k multiplier-Primorial prime
n!/(k*n#)-1 Almost-k divisor-Compositorial prime
n!/(k*n#)+1 Quasi-k divisor-Compositorial prime
k*n!/n#-1 Almost-k multiplier-Compositorial prime
k*n!/n#+1 Quasi-k multiplier-Compositorial prime[/CODE]
Well done Batalov on your Almost-k divisor-Factorial prime
[URL="http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=119403"]98166!/3 - 1[/URL]

Orial means Golden in Latin.

Batalov 2015-02-24 20:30

Well, in OEIS, "Almost-" and "Quasi-" prefixes sound rather arbitrary, and your full-length names are truly cumbersome to pronounce ;-).

I am not sure about "k divisor-Factorial" nomenclature: they are instead factorials with some terms [I]skipped[/I] (the shorthand form shouldn't fool, just like with compositorials: yes, n!/n# is easy to write and will be understood by humans and parsed by most programs, but what it conceptually is a product of "not all sequential" numbers, in this case, all composite numbers). Some of them are permutation numbers P[SUB]n,k[/SUB] (e.g. n!/2 or n!/6).

P.S. It goes without saying (but I didn't mention it before) that fpsieve is easily modified for these forms and that's what I indeed used before primality tests.

TheCount 2015-02-24 23:22

Maybe these terms better suit:
skipped k-Factorial
k-Factorial
skipped k-Primorial
k-Primorial
skipped k-Combinatorial
k-Combinatorial

This nomenclature works except when the k your dividing isn't a Prime/Composite respectively, so isn't skipped as such.

TheCount 2015-02-25 00:24

Indeed if k has prime factors with multiplicities then n#/k will be a fraction and so n#/k+/-1 can't be a prime.

TheCount 2015-06-08 12:15

48934!/48934# + 1 is prime

Submitted edit to OEIS A140294.
Proposed to give Daniel Heuer credit for 17258!/17257# + 1

Fully searched Compositorial up to n=45,000. Continuing to 50k.

I am going to extend the "near-factorial" sequences 3*k!+/-1 [A076679, A076134] next by adding multiplier support to fpcsieve.
