Low weight stats page.
Since <300k is almost completed, I would like to set up a page on low weight candidates of the form k*2^n1 . If you could just tell me what work you have done on these. It would be nice not to duplicate work.

I haven't done any work on lowweight k's but I was thinknig to propose that we process one real but small 15k to 1M like k=15, 45, 75 or 105. After sieving such k's produce too many candidates for a single cruncher to process, but potentially they hide a good deal of primes so if we do it together there are good chances that many of us will find a large prime. With the latest LLRP4 I think it can be done in a reasonable amount of time. What do you say?

I guess Mark could set up a team for some low 15k like he has done with 210885 and 2995125705. With the new LLRP4, k=15 seems a good choice. Robert has been working on it for some times. We should ask him for team work first.

I'm just announcing the find of two (big) primes of low weight k:
209826493*2^11408551 (ranking at position 50 of the Top5000!) 209826493*2^10713031 (found a few months earlier)  Thomas L10

Thomas, congrats any many huge primes!
BTW, can I reserve one k, just to try? I'm not sure how to read the table at the status page but if available I'd like to take k=32537227. It has no available data so I assume it's available(?) Can one reserve k's with some associated date in the table and/or provided sieve file? Thanks and good luck! Last fiddled with by Kosmaj on 20041218 at 16:34

Hi Kosmaj,
k=32537227 is all yours I don't have any sieve file for it It's not a very low weight at 2100 n's left at 20M but still a good choice. Joss
