Well, I said that this is an approximation. Before these calculations, I had no idea of how many PRPs we would find.

[QUOTE=Gordon;379856]So how many Mersenne Primes was that you found again ???
Please reply with the prime exponent you found and we'll throw you a :party:[/QUOTE] Well, this is not correct. In order to find these Mersenne primes, you need several people: the inventor of the algorithm, one or more persons that polish it making more amenable to computers, the one who code it in an optimized way, and the person who runs the computer that finally finds the results. So you are just one little line in the "cast of characters" (that spans several screens) of the discovery of M2976221. Silverman is in the second category of people mentioned above, but I think he is not related to anything related to Mersenne number primality.

[QUOTE=axn;379483]I don't see how the last 64 bits help.
Lets say F divides Mp. By Fermat, 3^(Mp/F) = 3 (mod (Mp/F)). Raising both sides to F, we get 3^Mp = 3^F (mod Mp/F). Now if we have the full residue 3^Mp (mod Mp), we can easily calculate 3^Mp (mod Mp/F). But last 64bits? Are you saying 3^Mp = 3^F (mod Mp/F) ==> 3^Mp = 3^F (mod Mp). I just tried it with M2311 (77567729423209*4514379640917651135021865565129IPRP652). LHS holds, but RHS doesn't.[/QUOTE] I now had some spare time to check if the low bits help and indeed they don't* and I didn't find a trick to make them useful (I was thinking that we could bitrotate the residue, but we can only do that mod M[SUB]p[/SUB], not mod M[SUB]p[/SUB]/F). The top 512bits, as P.L.M. wrote, work, but one needs a modification to the program, to save those 512bit residues in a file and later fetch and use them. EWMayer wrote [URL="http://mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=342776&postcount=15"]some code like that[/URL]. If I were to implement this, I could write a patch to prime95 (I've written and used small other ad hoc hacks; it is doable). ____ *I [STRIKE]remembered[/STRIKE] was misled into thinking about this possibility by my anecdotal experience with tiny factors, like 5 for some [TEX]2^p \pm 2^{{p+1}\over{2}}+1[/TEX] and 7 for some [TEX]3^p \pm 3^{{p+1}\over{2}}+1[/TEX]. They show up as prpbase^4 and prpbase^6 in the RES64, but this is a pure coincidence: e.g. [FONT="Fixedsys"]2^1223+2^612+1 is composite: RES64: [0000000000000051] (0.0041s+0.0008s)[/FONT] (where 51[SUB]16[/SUB] = 81 = 3^4) They are, of course, special for that form. This small curio does not extend itself to even slightly larger factors, let alone 8090+ bit factors that are relevant for the OP PRP project.

The problem in your reasoning is that the 40digit level is only complete in the cases that no factors were found. According to [URL="http://www.mersenne.org/report_ecm/default.php?txt=0&ecm_lo=10000&ecm_hi=20000&ecmnof_lo=10000&ecmnof_hi=20000"]the official report[/URL], the 35digit level is complete up to 11.5K, and the 30digit level is (almost) complete up to 16K. The other numbers are in the range 25 to 30 digits. So I think the estimate for 10K to 20K is OK for me. Notice that completing the ndigit level means that about 30% of the prime factors with that number of digits were not found because of the statistical nature of ECM. In the range 20K to 50K only the 25digit level was completed according to [URL="http://www.mersenne.org/report_ecm/default.php?txt=0&ecm_lo=20000&ecm_hi=50000&ecmnof_lo=20000&ecmnof_hi=50000"]this report[/URL].

That M11=23*prp2 looks somehow .... strange ^^ And on the page for the smoothest P1factors the case k=1 should be ignored. k=1 happens only iff the exponent of the Mnumber is a SophieGermaineprime congruent 3 mod 4, thus this column is the same as a list of the SGprimes = 3 mod 4.

Actually the chances are not so remote. It is true that for a number of that size to be strong pseudoprime to some bases,[URL="http://primes.utm.edu/notes/prp_prob.html"] the chances are extraordinarily low,[/URL] even lower than Retina said, but Mersenne factors don't behave like general numbers of their sizes. It is quite common for a composite mersenne factor to be 2PSP, for example all 3 composite combinations of 233, 1103 and 2089 (prime factors of M29) are pseudoprimes base 2. This seems to happen more often for p=1 (mod 4), but it happens often enough for p=3 (mod 4), for example 514447 is a 2PSP (is the product of 359 and 1433, prime factors of M179). Interesting enough, you can find small multiplebasePSP very easy for small composite factors of mersenne numbers, for example 10974881 is both 2PRP and 3PRP, but it not a prime (it is a PSP product of 1913 and 5737, prime factors of M239). And so on. There can be easily found small mersenne factors which are PRP to many bases, but still composite. So, there IS a remote chance that those big PRPs are still PSP. I guess we will not know very soon. Anyhow, the result is nice, and worth of congratulations.

Base 2 should not be used for Mersenne cofactors. They [B]all[/B] pass it. Let p be a prime and f = 2[SUP]s[/SUP]kp+1 be a composite factor of 2^p1 (where k is odd). We know that 2^p == 1 (mod f). Raising both sides by k, we get 2^(pk) == 1 (mod f) i.e. 2^((f1)/2[SUP]s[/SUP]) == 1 (mod f) IOW, f passes Base2 strong PRP test.

I think for small and very old factors, this is fine (for them to be anonymous).
In Ye Goode Olde Days, factors were immaterial  only primes were the goal of the project, so they bore no name. In fact, that's fine even for larger factors (including mine); I mean fine for me. However, because large crowds started making a sport out of factoring alone and they need some encouragement ("look, here is _[I]my[/I]_ factor"; "hey, my factor is bigger than yours!") and they need their name attached to a factor. Which is a fair price for the amount of (GPU) work (and electricity) they put into this effort. They [I]will[/I] want to find a bigger factor and they [I]will[/I] run their computers some more. If all they will be getting out of the project would be the heated house and a constant hum from the computer, they may fall off pretty fast.

It should, or at least we should make sure that fullyfactored exponents are eliminated from consideration for any further factoring by ECM or other method. mprime/Prime95 can do PRP testing, but it does not send the results to Primenet, nor can these results be manually submitted to Primenet. These results have to be manually submitted to Mersenne.ca, at [url]http://www.mersenne.ca/index.php?submitresults=1[/url] Mersenne.ca is the central repository for PRP information on Mersenne exponents, with the full list at [url]http://www.mersenne.ca/prp.php[/url] All of the PRP exponents up to and including M63,703 have had their cofactors certified prime with Primo or some other means. All the higher exponents are only probablyfullyfactored, albeit with very high confidence. Ranges for PRP testing can be reserved at [url]http://www.mersenne.ca/prp.php?assigned_distribution=1[/url] by clicking on the blue links and then clicking on the button in the resulting page. However, that page does not really document clearly that results need to be submitted at [url]http://www.mersenne.ca/index.php?submitresults=1[/url] Mersenne.ca pulls updates daily from Primenet. Both of these sites should have identical information about residues and factors, including second and higher factors. A few months ago, a few dozen inconsistencies were discovered between the two databases, but those were reconciled and presumably there is no longer an issue. One difference is that Mersenne.ca has factors data for exponents up to 4.29 billion, whereas Primenet only stores factors data for exponents up to 1.00 billion.
