Found more conjectured k for the extended Sierpinski/Riesel problems:
S24: 30651 S42: 13372 S60: 16957 R24: 32336 R42: 15137 R60: 20558 The six conjectured k's are the same as the conjectured k's for the original Sierpinski/Riesel problem. Thus, for base 24, base 42 and base 60 (but not for all bases), the extend Sierpinski/Riesel problem covers the original Sierpinski/Riesel problem.

Found the conjectured k for R36: 33791.
(33791*36^n1)/5 has a cover set: {13, 31, 43, 97}. Now, I still found no k with a cover set only for these bases <= 64: S15, S40, S52. R15, R40, R52. Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 20161223 at 14:07

Found more conjectured k for the extended Sierpinski/Riesel problems:

Now, I am running the extended Sierpinski/Riesel conjectures for 13<=b<=24. Since the conjectured k for base 15, 22 and 24 (on both sides) are larger, I only run other bases.

All extended Sierpinski conjectures I ran are proven. (S18 is proven since only GFNs (18*18^n+1 and 324*18^n+1) are remain)
Define of GFNs: Only exist for extended Sierpinski conjectures ((k*b^n+1)/gcd(k+1,b1)). gcd(k+1,b1)=1. k is a rational power of b. Thus, 100*10^n+1, 18*18^n+1 and 4*32^n+1 are GFNs, but 4*155^n+1, (25*5^n+1)/2 and (7*49^n+1)/8 are not. Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 20161223 at 19:11

All extended Riesel conjectures I ran are proven except R17, R17 has only k=29 remain.
Can someone find a prime of the form (29*17^n1)/4? Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 20161223 at 19:01

The extended Sierpinski/Riesel conjectures for bases 2<=b<=24 with only one k remain:
R7, k=197 ((197*7^n1)/2) S10, k=269 ((269*10^n+1)/9) R17, k=29 ((29*17^n1)/4) Can you find the smallest n? Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 20161223 at 19:15

List of the status for the extended Sierpinski/Riesel conjectures to bases 2<=b<=24: (the number of remain k does not contain the k excluded from testing, i.e. k's that is multiple of b and (k+1)/gcd(k+1, b1) are composite, and also not contain GFN's)
