On occasion of the recent finds I've updated my pages for [url=http://www.rieselprime.de/Others/HomePrime10.htm]Home Prime Base 10 (49)[/url] and the [url=http://www.rieselprime.de/Others/EuclidMullin.htm]EuclidMullinSequence[/url].

I've extended the page with [url=http://www.rieselprime.de/Related/FirstSG.htm]First odd k with Sophie Germain[/url] from n=4000 to n=10000.

I don't really understand what the yellow values in that table are. The comment say "jumping champion  the highest k so far", but this can't be. For some of them there are very easy to find higher k's. For example for n=10, the table say k=141, in yellow. A oneliner in pari stops indeed at 141:
[CODE] gp > k=1; until(isprime(a)&&isprime(b), k++; print(k", "a=1024*k1", "factorint(a)",\t"b=2048*k1", "factorint(b))) 2, 2047, [23, 1; 89, 1], 4095, [3, 2; 5, 1; 7, 1; 13, 1] 3, 3071, [37, 1; 83, 1], 6143, Mat([6143, 1]) 4, 4095, [3, 2; 5, 1; 7, 1; 13, 1], 8191, Mat([8191, 1]) 5, 5119, Mat([5119, 1]), 10239, [3, 1; 3413, 1] 6, 6143, Mat([6143, 1]), 12287, [11, 1; 1117, 1] .... snip many lines .... 139, 142335, [3, 2; 5, 1; 3163, 1], 284671, [23, 1; 12377, 1] 140, 143359, [23, 2; 271, 1], 286719, [3, 1; 31, 1; 3083, 1] 141, 144383, Mat([144383, 1]), 288767, Mat([288767, 1]) gp> [/CODE] But then we can continue higher, removing the "k=1" in front, and it still stops at [B]153[/B], then a couple of uninteresting (even) values, then [B]735[/B], etc. These are not primes, but they are odd. From the other columns I see the numbers in the table are odd, not necessary primes (and there is no mention of primarity, indeed). I could easily "extend" some of the yellow cells higher. So, what exactly is the meaning of the yellow cells? 
[QUOTE=LaurV;319476]So, what exactly is the meaning of the yellow cells?[/QUOTE]
The table shows the first odd kvalue of Rieseltype numbers a=k*2^n1 and b=k*2^(n+1)1 for which a and b both primes (Sophie Germains). The yellow values are the highest [b]in this table[/b], so for n=10 k=141 is highest of all lower n and every time a kvalue is higher than the last yellow, it is marked yellow as new highest. 
Ah, got it now. Not very useful, however...

All times are UTC. The time now is 23:45.
