What ( if tracked ) is the error rate for Trial Factoring
Is an error rate for Trial Factoring tracked ?
I realize that a false negative ( small factor not found/reported, when one really exists) will eventually be covered even if it takes doing a LL.
What about a false positive ( small factor found/reported, when none exist) ?
Is it even possible for this to happen ?
Or is there some sort of very quick verification ( just do the TF calc using the factor found on the mersenne ) ?
If a factor is found and no quick verification will that be the end of work on that mersenne ? Possibly missing a mersenne prime.
