You're right Geoff.

I found a prime for 21380*5^50625+1 , which is equal to 4276*5^50626+1. But this doesn't mean that k=4276 doesn't have a prime for n less than 50626, so that's one thing that has to be checked!

Nice one!

It doesn't matter for the project whether or not k=4276 could have been eliminated by a smaller n than n=50626, any prime will do. The only problems are for k such as k=123910=5*24782. 24782 has already been eliminated because 24782*5^1+1 is prime, but this doesn't rule out the possibility that 123910*5^n+1 = 24782*5^(n+1)+1 is composite for all n. This means we have to leave k=123910 in the list.

OK the outcome of the observation by Templus is that all multiples of 5 can be eliminated except for 51460, 81700 and 123910, and Robert already found a prime for 81700. This means there are only 161 candidates left to test.

[QUOTE=Templus]Geoff, did you see that I reserved k = 24032 on the sixth of january?[/QUOTE]
Sorry I missed that, noted now.

My new results are: 33358*5^38096+1 and 33526*5^41142+1 are prime.

Seriously big prime

[url]http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=73175[/url]

Primality testing 111502*5^134008+1 [N-1, Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge]
Running N-1 test using base 11
Calling Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge with factored part 99.99%
111502*5^134008+1 is prime! (1503.0378s+0.0176s)

First prime I have found for a while. It will be the 1000 to 1100 range of largest primes ever found, tantalisingly close to 100000 digits.

Interestingly this is the k value which we might have expected to give the most problem having the smallest smallest Nash weight of all the remaining candidates!

Primality testing 37246*5^50452+1 [N-1, Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge]
Running N-1 test using base 11
Running N-1 test using base 13
Calling Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge with factored part 99.99%
37246*5^50452+1 is prime! (456.9443s+0.0070s)

Cheers, Micha Fleuren

One more down

Hi all,

I got one more down today, finding my second prime:

PFGW Version 20041020.Win_Stable (v1.2 RC1c) [FFT v23.8]

Primality testing 38084*5^29705+1 [N-1, Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge]
Running N-1 test using base 2
Calling Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge with factored part 99.98%
38084*5^29705+1 is prime! (65.7210s+0.0034s)

Cheers, Micha

The Riesel base 5 series

I have taken a slight excursion away from Sierpinski base 5 to prepare the groundwork for the Riesel base 5 study. I have checked up to around n=12250 and I am still clearing 9-10 candidates a day. I will stop when sieving individual candidates makes sense. Right now there are 465 candidates left, so we should still work on the Sierpinski set.

For the Sierpinski series, I have checked the following k to the following n with no primes:
k n
110242 52766
110488 55772

And I have discovered:

111994 30446 is prp3
