Operation: Billion Digits
I'd like for some people to join me in the quest for both a billiondigit prime and $250,000. From the benchmarks and Prime95, I found the lowest prime (just the exponent obviously) in this category was M3321928097. I'd like to have someone start off by advanced factoring it. You should probably do 50 bits. Please reply if you want to take this exponent. But be sure to specify the amount of bits you are factoring with. You me also post comments if necessary.

2^3321928097  1
6643856195 is the starting factor .......................................! 6158854691839 is a FACTOR of 2^3321928097  1 k*2*p + 1 927*2*3321928097 + 1

Just wondering. Does anyone know how many P90 CPU Hours are needed to LL test an exponent, n (as a function of n)?

Doubling the exponent results in at least four times the execution time.

So, a billion exponent would take a time that is equivalent to ~25,000 2^20,996,0111 tests??? Wow. :surrender

The LL test is actually O(N[sup]2[/sup]logN), since it is an O(NlogN) FFT multiply performed N times. Accounting for the extra term, it would take ~32,000 times the time it took to test M40. For numbers of this size, it makes much more sense to use numbers which can be tested using Proth's theorem, allowing many numbers with almost exactly 1 billion digits to be tested, instead of being forced to test larger and larger Mersenne numbers.
