-   Riesel Prime Data Collecting (k*2^n-1) (

I've included a new page (available under menu 'Related' -> 'First SG'):

It shows the first odd k-value where the numbers k*2[sup]n[/sup]-1 and k*2[sup]n+1[/sup]-1 are prime and therefore a Sophie-Germain pair.

For now there're only values for n<=70 listed, others will follow.

I've also created a DOS-batch to determine such values automatically:

@echo off
set /a kval=%1
set /a nval=%2

title k=%kval% n=%nval%
echo 1:S:0:2:16394>SG.txt
echo %kval% %nval% >>SG.txt

cllr SG.txt
if exist SG.res goto loop_nextn
del llr.ini
set /a kval=%kval%+6
goto begin

findstr /c:" " sg.res >>found.txt
del sg.res sg.txt llr.ini lresults.txt
set /a nval=%nval%+1
set /a kval=3
goto begin

Name this batch 'run.bat'.
To run this batch, cllr.exe (available from J.Penné, developer of LLR V3.8.1) is needed, too.

Calling this script with
[b]run start_k start_n[/b]
with start_k the k-value and start_n the n-value to start with, will search for a Sophie-Germain pair for n=start_n beginning at k=start_k and further ones (CTRL-C will stop this script).
After stopping the batch, it can be restarted with the pair given in the file SG.txt (saved during the last run).
Every found k/n-pair will be written to the file 'found.txt'.

Starting with start_n < 3 will give the false result for n=2, because the script starts always at k=3 (and incement the k-value by 6 -> only possible values for SG's).

Perhaps others want to find some more ranges.
Please post your results here.

I've changed the script to continue from a certain k-value.

I've changed the above script, because it's timings were very lousy!

Now I'm doing it this way:

@echo off
set /a nval=%1
set /a kmin=1
set /a kmax=1000000

title n=%nval%
cnewpgen -wp=%nval%.txt -t=3 -base=2 -n=%nval% -kmin=%kmin% -kmax=%kmax% -own -osp=1000000000 >nul
cllr -oStopOnSuccess=1 %nval%.txt >nul
if exist %nval%.res goto loop_nextn
if %kmin%==1 goto loop_nextk
echo 0 %nval%>>%nval%.res
goto loop_nextn

set /a kmin=1000000
set /a kmax=10000000
del llr.ini
goto begin

findstr /c:" " %nval%.res >>found.txt
del %nval%.txt %nval%.res llr.ini lresults.txt
set /a kmin=1
set /a kmax=1000000
set /a nval=%nval%+1
goto begin

To run this batch, cllr.exe and cnewpgen.exe are needed.

Calling 'run 1' will start to search for a SG at n=1 and further until it will stopped (CTRL-C).

- NewPGen will sieve for SG (base=2, n as above, kmin=1, kmax=1e6, pmax=1e9)
- LLR will test the sieve file and stops when a SG was found
- next n-value will tested automatically

If for 1<=k<=1e6 no SG was found, the range 1e6<=k<=1e7 will be tested again.
If this also fails to find a SG, the value "0 n-value" will be reported in 'found.txt'.

This script took about an hour for n=1-430 (Q6600, 1 core, stock speed).

I've also updated the new page with some more values.

I've submitted the above sequence to [b]"The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences"[/b] and can be found [url=]here[/url].

Status 3rd Quarter 2010
8055 k-values (5+)
162942 primes (~1300+)
3457 twins (1+)
9532 Top5000-links (308+)

Updated also Statistics and Riesel_all / Twins_all download files.

Found doubled prime in C.Caldwell's Top5000 Database:

[url=]155*2^67973+1[/url] (now deleted!) and [url=]155*2^67973+1[/url].

I just noticed, that PrimeGrid found another Riesel-problem prime on 2011-04-05 (announcement [url=]here[/url]):

[url=]65531*2^3629342-1[/url] is prime (1,092,546 digits, rank #29 on Top5000)

There're 'only' 61 k-values left to proove the Riesel-conjecture.

kar_bon 2011-05-12 07:23

A new Riesel-Prime seems to be found yesterday: [url=]123547*2^3804809-1[/url]. The verification is still in progress.

So (if it's a new one) 'only' 60 candidates left to proove the Riesel-Conjecture.

PS: Verification done.

kar_bon 2011-05-13 23:49

And here's the next Riesel Prime in sight:

[url=]415267*2^3771929-1[/url] is still in progress (a little bit smaller than the last one).

So 59 candidates left.

New page for RPS 2nd Megabit Drive included.

Factors of Fermats and Generalized Fermats maked for k<=9 and some in 1000<k<100000 on the Proth-pages (thanks W.Keller).

kar_bon 2011-05-29 15:30

The next Riesel Prime:

141941*2^4299438-1 is still in progress.

So 58 candidates left.

kar_bon 2011-06-01 11:09

Next Riesel Prime:

353159*2^4331116-1 just verifying.

Now 57 candidates left.

All times are UTC. The time now is 21:41.
