Time to prp equation
Hey, guys, I would like to sieve until the sieving rate is JUUUUUUUUST under the average prp rate. Assuming that the minimum and maximum exponent are known and they increase at a steady rate(is this a good assumption?) how do I figure out the average length of time for a test?
Btw, I've sieved these already, but have no idea if I've reached the goal stated above.

low k = 50000 high k = 200000 Calculate midk where midk = 200000  (200000  50000)/4. I choose midk like this because it will take 16 times longer to PRP test k=200000 than k=50000. midk is about 3/4 of the range about lowk. Run PRP/LLR/PFGW on midk*base^n+/1 doing about 10% of the PRP test. Multiply the time it took to do 10% by 10. Use that time to be the breakpoint to change over from sieving to PRP testing. I'm certain that others have different methods. Use that time
