Weights of certain bases.
Today I took a look at the number of candidates remaining after running axn1's sieve to 10^10. I ran the sieve over n=50 to n=150.
I will call the "weight" of a base n, to be the number of candidates remaining after running the sieve through 10^10.
The number of candidates remaining:
Average weight = 18.15
Minimum weight = 3 (n=68) the lightest.
Maximum weight = 54 (n=112) the heaviest.
Also
8299358445 50
3920165865 54
7130617935 62
925905105 64
3539387145 65
were the only primeoctoproths found.
I've attached an excel spreadsheet with the details, and 101 text files with the output from the sieve for n=50 to 100.
