Reserved for MF  Sequence 3366
Welcome,
Aliquot Sequence 3366 has been officially assigned to the forum ("Mersenne Forum") on 7 August, 2013. It currently stands at index 2067 with 2^3 * 3^3 * ... * c135. The status of ECM work on the c135 is unknown. This thread will be the place holder for ECM progress and possibly initiation of some NFS processing. Team sieving will most likely be spun off into a separate thread until it completes. Then progress will return here for status updates. Feel free to contribute curves or other electronic cycles you may want to donate. And by all means  have fun!! mod edit: [url]http://www.factordb.com/sequences.php?se=1&aq=3366&action=last20&fr=0&to=100[/url] 
3366:i2067
After running a few hundred curves @ 43e6 I feel confident the c135 is ready for GNFS. (Not that those few curves make it happen but including the history of this Seq.) I've started it on a Core i5. It should finish in 45 days. I won't feel hurt if someone trumps me with an ECM find. :smile:

c143 @ i2068
pm1 2e9  nothing
800 @ 1e6  nothing Passing through 400 @ 3e6 
2000 @ 3e6  nothing.

I'm well past 4000@11e6...

Poly select commencing. I should have one Monday morning USAPacific time.

At 4745 curves @ 11e6, I switched to 43e6 for a while...

At about 1660 curves @ 43000000:

This might be a personal run to finish off the c121. Go for it EdH. Clueless at 2^3 * 3^2 ... c121

Note that 2000 curves at 43M here would take longer than GNFS by quite a margin, without certainty of producing a factor. In general, ECM for more than 25% of expected NFS factoring time is effort better spent on NFS. The ecm target of 30 to 33% of the digit length of the GNFS candidate came from this heuristic.
In this case, it worked nicely and saved you time! While B1 = 3e6 is the "right" choice for a t40, I find that using 11e6 costs little extra time for the t40 level, while increasing my chances of a factor the size you found (p45) pretty substantially. Even doing 250 43e6 curves is a t40, though a B1 that big would cost a fair amount more time for a t40 than a smaller choice. In fact, I've been meaning to sample a bunch of B1s to see which choice minimizes the time to complete a t45 I've done a few experiments before, and 11e6 is not optimal on my machines with gmpecm 6.4. Edit: or was this just for fun?
