 2004-05-18, 10:07 #67 jinydu     Dec 2003 Hopefully Near M48 175810 Posts When I look at a graph, the ratio between successive Mersenne prime exponents doesn't seem to be closing in on a limiting value, at least not for the first 38 exponents.
 2004-05-18, 10:21 #68 TTn   2×4,261 Posts Huh ? Wha? Did you see the link I gave ya. That's dead on the money. Well as far as prime numbers are concerned anyway. Do you mean closing in on a rational limiting value? ie, 3/2 Or irrational limiting value? ie, 1.47576 Well if you meant rational, then ofcourse not. If you mean irrational, then I suggest you are.

 2004-05-18, 12:01 #69 jinydu     Dec 2003 Hopefully Near M48 2·3·293 Posts Here is the graph I made using Microsoft Excel. The first point is (1, 3/2), the second is (2, 5/3) all the way up to (37, 6972593/3021377). As can be seen, the points don't seem to be closing in on a limiting value towards the right-end of the graph. Attached Thumbnails

As far as prime numbers are concerned, that's close
If you take the average of all, it comes out to be about 1.99.
But take the average of the first 8, or the first 11 Mp, = 1.47... ,

Edit: I ran the averages, and it tends to get smoother as n gets large, but when it's rough it really rough. This is due to prime number divergence.

Yes...

 2004-05-18, 18:04 #73 Prime95 P90 years forever!     Aug 2002 Yeehaw, FL 157668 Posts Xyzzy started a P4 verification soon after the prime was found and has completed 5 million iterations. Ernst started a run using mlucas on a single-cpu system on Sunday. He estimates 3 1/2 weeks to complete the run. He is at 1 million iterations. Jeff in Canada started a Glucas run Monday on an 8-way Alpha box. He too is at 1 million iterations and matches Ernst's interim residue. If CPU loads stay low Jeff could finish in just over two weeks. Tony in France also started a Glucas run Monday but ran into some threading problems. His multi-CPU Sun box hasn't reached 1 million iterations yet. However, he going to try and switch to a 16-CPU Itanium machine. No estimates on a possible completion date. Mike, Ernst, and I will post progress as it comes in. Keep your fingers crossed!
 2004-05-18, 18:21 #74 Jeff Gilchrist     Jun 2003 Ottawa, Canada 7·167 Posts Its actually a 16-way Alpha box but its shared amongs researchers so I think they are limiting the number of CPUs you can run. I'm actually just using 4 CPUs (that seems to be the max) with GLUCAS but getting pretty good speed. Lets just hope the queue software is smart enough not to overload the system (ideally it should only let enough processes/threads run for the # of CPUs the box has) so lets hope the load doesn't go up.

Well, GP2 did last time, so I guess I'll do the honors this time. The four remaining possibilities based on the various info posted in this thread:

Code:

But all of them have a non-zero residue.
