Oh, goodness! It's great that we now have only 1 k remaining < 3M! Nice work guys but I must make a request. Please reserve any work before starting on it to avoid any extra doublework. I was about ready to work on the 2 k's remaining for k<3M myself when I saw this. Karsten, I was planning on starting a team sieve for n=25K100K for all k<50M after I got back. I think that ~200 k's is a good number of k's for sr2sieve. Since you'll be on vacation for 68 weeks, I'll still plan on doing that, which will essentially make it a doublecheck for n=25K32K for k<10M. Of course, we'll eliminate the k's that you found a prime for and include the one that Willem didn't find a prime for, which will effectively make it a doublecheck for n=25K100K. We may even make a mini teamdrive to LLR all k<50M up to n=100K and later continue it for k=50M100M, etc. Ultimately, it will make sense to set up LLRnet servers for it, probably for searching n>100K. Thanks, Gary

That's how this search was 'intended' to be too.
Phase 1) First do some first elimination (to 25k) Phase 2) then go from 25k to 100k (for some reasonable amount of k's, 200 seems fine) Phase 3) then go from 100k to 200k... and so on... just to keep things interesting :) (Phase 1, 50100M is at 19.5k now...)

I just did another quick doublecheck of the top5000 site vs. our list of k's remaining on Sierp base 3. I found that I missed one from my own search of k=10M30M:
26803256*3^69079+1 is prime So based on the additional searching by others and this research here, I have eliminated the following 5 kvalues, which leaves 204 k's < 50M remaining for sieving and a total of 303 k's remaining for k< 50M and k=100M120M: 2980832 3159992 3234118 7969792 26803256 Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20080627 at 06:53

Micha, Below are some former top5000 primes in your krange. They may or may not help you eliminate some k's. 59054564*3^64030+1 66683018*3^98716+1 70260298*3^72927+1 Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20080627 at 06:47

Reserving the 204 k's remaining for Sierp base 3 k<50M for n=25K100K for SIEVING ONLY.
We can decide how we want to distribute the work a little later. Would anyone be interested in helping sieve? If so, I'll get an initial sieved file started up to P=100G or 250G and then we can coordinate. I figure we can sieve to an optimal depth for n=25K50K, break off that piece for primality testing and then continue sieving for n=50K100K while removing kvalues from the higher range as we find primes in the lower range.

It seems that at some point somebody had taken up the Riesel and Sierp base 3 conjectures previously because we have eliminated quite a few kvalues with former top5000 primes...far more than chance alone would dictate. Since you had not found a prime for them in your search at lower nvalues, then they are top10 primes for the base and will be reflected as such for the time being. Gary

Considering 50100M base 3 sierpinski:
The following 213 k's are left at n=25k with k mod 3 = 1 or 2 (and thus still need to be searched) Code:

I think I've got it alright now, but a confirmation would be nice. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20080703 at 05:11 Reason: corrected (k mod 3)=0 to (k mod 3^2)=0

(I am not, at least not on my laptop, I think due to memory shortages...) For another thing: How would you feel upon me taking up prp'ing upto 10k with my script, and then report the remaining back to you? Anything beyond 10k takes too long with pfgw, and really needs to be sieved. (which can then be taken on by anyone willing to :) ) 50100M range yielded 808 leftovers upto 10k, so I think it should still be managable filewise. I'm aware that the administration would be a bit more complicated (as in, when do you delete the k's that have reduced forms, hosting the files etc, but I think it has the advantage of getting the search started a bit more quickly too Last fiddled with by michaf on 20080630 at 19:27

It's interesting that you asked. I tried a number of experiments with sr2sieve and srsieve in order to see what I felt was the fastest and least manualintervention method of sieving. At first I tried half of the kvalues (102) using sr2sieve. Although it took several hours to create the Legendre symbols, that worked fine. I observed that it was using ~480M of memory. My machine has ~1G of memory but the operating system and other things of course use up ~100M (I think). I decided to push the limit on it and try with all 204 kvalues using sr2sieve. Wouldn't you know it, I got a MALLOC error on the 198th kvalue and it took over 8 hours (kindofslow 1.6 Ghz Athlon) to create the symbols. Unfortunately, even though I told it to save the symbols file, it doesn't do so if it goes down with an error. I then tried it with 195 kvalues and after another ~8 hours to recreate the symbols file, it was working fine. The Prate was ~170K/sec and the symbols file was 1.6 GB!! I would then need to run another instance of sr2sieve with the remaining 9 kvalues but the Prates would be so inconsistent that I determined that I should just run 2 instances of sr2sieve, one each for half of the kvalues. I did that for the first half of them using the symbols file from my first test above and was getting a ~320K/sec Prate, about what I would expect (slightly < double the 195 k's rate). I started to run the second instance of sr2sieve for the second half of the k's and after watching it VERY slowly creating the symbols file, I got sick of waiting. So, that's when I decided to see how much slower srsieve was for the entire 208 k's. I did an initial sieve to P=4G and then came the real test. I started a sieve from P=4G and the Prate was ~150K/sec.; only about 1012% slower than sr2sieve was for 195 k's. At that point, I just decided that sr2sieve was simply too much of a headache and have been running two instances of srsieve on my dualcore 1.6 Ghz Athlon laptop, each with all of the k's in them for different Pranges. I've completed sieving to P=20G as of yesterday and started sieving P=20G60G but have temporarily suspended it. Right now, I am running PFGW for bases 7 and 25 to get some small primes and balance the k's remaining for Siemlink's efforts on those bases. I am sieving n=25K100K. My estimate is that the optimal sieve for breaking off the n=25K50K piece is P=100G. If you want to pitch in on sieving, I can send you my ABCD file sieved to P=20G. I'm taking P=20G60G so if you want to take P=60G100G, then that should get us to where we need to begin LLRing n=25K50K. (We'll need to check the removal rate again at that point.) For sieving, we can then remove the n=25K50K candidates and continue sieving n=50K100K. Edit: At the higher nranges, the 1012% savings (minus time needed to create symbols) by using 2 instances of sr2sieve, one each for half of the kvalues, would be more significant. We may want to revisit the issue for n=50K100K or perhaps if we decide to go to a higher nrange with it. My opinion, though, is that we don't go testing above n=100K and that we go on to the next krange and bring it up to n=100K also, etc. Of course others may prefer to search for higher primes.

Wow, it looks like great work! Nice job! Thanks for providing all of the detail. It'll make the review far easier. It'll probably be tomorrow or Weds. before I can review it as the Riesel base 25 verification is taking many hours and more k's can be eliminated on it then what Siemlink has already found due to the base 5 project. I hope that no new bases are started for the next several months now! Gary
