2021 project goals

Below are some goals for 2021 that CRUS can aim for:

1. Prove 3 bases; [COLOR=green][COLOR=Red]3/3 bases proven; completed on 2021/07/27![/COLOR][/COLOR]

2. Search all bases with 3 k remaining (at n<300K) to n>=300K;[COLOR=green] [COLOR=Red]13/13 bases completed on 2021/07/11![/COLOR][/COLOR]

3. Search all bases with <= 10 k's remaining (at n<200K) to n>=200K; [COLOR=green][COLOR=Red]25/25 bases completed on 2021/08/15![/COLOR][/COLOR]

4. Complete all Riesel/Sierp base 2/4 odd/even k's and n's to n=8M base 2. [COLOR=green]0.35M/1.35M n-range completed.[/COLOR]

5. Complete all k's on base R3 to n>=100K; [COLOR=green]29G/33G k-range completed.[/COLOR]

6. Find 60 top 3000 primes;[COLOR=green][COLOR=Red] 60/60 primes found; completed on 2021/08/07![/COLOR][/COLOR]

7. Find 15 top 1000 primes; [COLOR=green]6/15 primes found.[/COLOR]

8. Find 4 top 500 primes; [COLOR=green][COLOR=Red]4/4 primes found; completed on 2021/07/27![/COLOR][/COLOR]

I have lowered the goals on several categories due to the amount of effort required for Goal #5.

I'm confident that we can accomplish most or all of these goals. All help is greatly appreciated! :smile:

I added another goal: #4, after Reb agreed to have BOINC work on it. That will be the last change.

For goal #5 that should be 10G of 33G completed. It appears that #3 and #5 are going to be the most difficult to accomplish by the end of the year.

Goal #3 should be no problem if we have the sieve files.

Updated. Actually Goal 4 will be by far the most difficult. It is unlikely to finish although I will throw many of my machines at it for awhile later in the year to give it a reasonable shot.

Goal 3...no problem at all. All sieve files are in the works and each base isn't much work for BOINC. Goal 5 is a little tough but doable.

I set the goals high to see what we can pull off.

With Pepi's recent large-prime proof of R650 that leaves us just one away from completing goals 1 and 8. :-)

Goal #2 has been completed! :smile:

 gd_barnes 2021-07-27 19:55

With the proof of S470, goals 1 & 8 have been completed! :smile:

Goal #6 has been completed! :smile:
