It seems that you mixed up those values:

The old Nash tool as given here in this thread was specifically created for k*2^n-1 and will yield:
Code:
nash 93    -->   93 3116 3123
But this is the Nash weight for the sequence 93*2^n-1

The new (universal) Nash tool (originally created upon your request) and given in another thread yields the correct answer:
Code:
nash -93 10   -->  -93 5030 5045
This is the Nash weight for the sequence 93*10^n-1

BTW.: Note the sign change between the two versions: For the new one enter negative k for the Riesel side, e.g. -k*b^n+1 for k*^b^n-1.

mnash is restricted to base 2. But one could easily write a little Python or Perl script which does the looping over k and calls the new Nash tool...

For convenience the attached ZIP file also contains the latest single k universal base nash.exe.

A positive k means k*b^n+1, negative k means k*b^n-1 (e.g. entering as -k*b^n+1)

Usage examples are given below:

Nash weights for sequences k*3^n-1 (for even k=10-20):
Code:
mnash -20 -10 2 3        (= kmin kmax kstep base)

-20 3 2960 2960
-18 3 2686 2667
-16 3 1430 1435
-14 3 1524 1523
-12 3 2359 2369
-10 3 4054 4038
Note the reversed order due to the negative k values. If base is omitted, b=2 is assumed.

and for k*7^n+1:
Code:
mnash 10 20 2 7

10 7 4000 3979
12 7 2407 2411
14 7    0    0
16 7 3211 3210
18 7 2392 2387
20 7    0    0
Nash weight for the single sequence 14*17^n-1:
Code:
nash -14 17

-14 17  803  800
Same here: If base is omitted, b=2 is assumed.

I did some minor improvements to the "mnash" tool:

(1) The earlier version was restricted to k<2^31, the new one can handle k of arbitrary size.

(2) The values "kmin" and "kmax" now have the meaning of start and stop values and you're no longer restricted to (numerically) increasing order.

(3) The sign of the step size doesn't matter. It will be adjusted properly. So a step size of 2 may be entered as "2" oder "-2".

(4) If only kmin and kmax are given, a step size of 2 is assumed. And base=2, of course.

To give an example:
Code:
mnash -2 -10 2 13

-2 13 3721 3713
-4 13    0    0
-6 13 1416 1414
-8 13  963  965
-10 13    0    0
And for some very large Ks:
Code:
mnash 123456789012345678901234567890 123456789012345678901234567880 2 7

123456789012345678901234567890 7 3543 3571
123456789012345678901234567888 7 1370 1345
123456789012345678901234567886 7    0    0
123456789012345678901234567884 7 2876 2886
123456789012345678901234567882 7 2171 2148
123456789012345678901234567880 7    0    0

I will add this feature when I'm back from Christmas vacations (don't have a real computer with me)...

 2015-12-27, 22:04 #18 pepi37     Dec 2011 After milion nines:) 2·653 Posts Multi5 is still way faster then mnash. So also can you just change behavior of last number 32000000025 KMIN 32001000000 KMAX 30 KSTEP 600 minimum weight for printing Since if we use this tool we look at very small weight of number do that last number print only K less then not above then ( as it now) With that output will be drastically smaller . Thanks

Here comes the new version of MNash with the print filtering feature added.

Usage example:
Code:
MNash.exe -1 -100 2 2 800
The additional parameter (800) controls the printing, e.g. the result line will only be printed if at least one of the two weights is less or equal to the limiting parameter. The output of the above example is thus:
Code:
            -11 2  795  791
-29 2  495  485
-37 2  630  629
-43 2  633  640
-59 2  639  642
-71 2  593  604
-73 2  800  818
If looking for high weight sequences just enter the limit with a negative sign, e.g.:
Code:
MNash.exe -1 -100 2 2 -3000
This will print only lines with weight >= 3000:
Code:
            -45 2 3747 3767
-69 2 3438 3437
-75 2 3181 3184

nash 127 means nash 127 2 (plus side)
nash -127 means nash 127 2 ( minus side)

but 9*4^n-1 should have weight 0, since it is proven composite by full algebra factors (3*2^n-1) * (3*2^n+1)
