 2019-05-15, 03:53 #34 LaurV Romulan Interpreter     Jun 2011 Thailand 23C116 Posts Small nitpicking: on the Riesel primes table, it is mentioned "green = base reserved", etc, but actually, those are not bases, those are "k"s. The base is always 2. This is a bit confusing, when you search the web looking for Riesel primes in some base. Also, all odd numbers can be written as k*2^n-1 for some k and n, therefore all primes are Riesel primes according with your definition. It has to be amended to say something like "where 2^n>k" or so, similar to the Proth side. Last fiddled with by LaurV on 2019-05-15 at 03:56 Reason: spacing
 2019-05-15, 07:47 #35 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 2×1,433 Posts Thanks for the hint. I've changed the definition on Proth/Riesel prime page and replaced the 'base' on the table pages.
 2019-05-15, 13:46 #36 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 1011001100102 Posts Update for "Williams prime": Instead of linking to tha file of the least n-value I created an own page which shows wanted values and the data table. This table is generated from a CSV file (had to be renamed and csv-ed first) and showing on that page using an extension. For the other three types this has to be done also, links to CRUS bases (not yet implemented) should come later. More and more linkings to related pages will occur like Williams, Near Woodall and Riesel for example. Done: own pages for all 4 types of Williams primes with files created, Last fiddled with by kar_bon on 2019-05-16 at 22:31 Reason: update
 2019-05-17, 11:53 #37 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 2×1,433 Posts The values for Williams primes of the form (b-1)•b^n-1 are now for b <=64 (& 128) online and the table shows them correctly even using data from other primes: For bases power of 2 the data will be retrieved from their Riesel primes (n-values, search range, reserved, date). The only thing here: I have to 'teach' the table to show a color (perhaps a different for reservation and reusing) if a Riesel k-value is involved. This reuse will minimize of doing double work here and on other prime sequences. Last fiddled with by kar_bon on 2019-05-17 at 11:57 Reason: mmh
 2019-05-24, 05:46 #38 sweety439   Nov 2016 22×691 Posts Found some errors in the wiki pages: 1. Williams prime MP 452, the "Max n" is 71490, not 71940. 2. Williams prime MM 128, the "Max n" is 1.95M (not 800000), and this sequence is reserved by Cruelty, see the post https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...9&postcount=72 by Cruelty. 3. Williams prime MP 363, the "Max n" should be 142876, why 142870? 4. For the external links of the page Williams prime, the range of b of http://harvey563.tripod.com/wills.txt is 3 ≤ b ≤ 2049, not 2 ≤ b ≤ 2048. Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 2019-05-24 at 06:01
 2019-05-24, 05:56 #39 sweety439   Nov 2016 22·691 Posts Besides, will you add the page "Gen. repunit prime" (primes of the form (b^n-1)/(b-1) and (b^n+1)/(b+1))? and also the pages "Gen. repunit prime least", "Gen. repunit prime without" and "Gen. repunit prime table"? See my page https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...iu7IzXAZGo/pub, I know that this is PRP searching, not prime searching.
 2019-05-24, 06:10 #40 sweety439   Nov 2016 22×691 Posts Also, there are errors in all four "Williams prime least" page, the range of bases b is 2 ≤ b ≤ 1024, not 2 ≥ b ≥ 1024.
 2019-05-24, 11:58 #41 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 2·1,433 Posts Thanks, I've corrected some errors. Williams 128: not yet, waiting for response. Gen. repunit prime: not for now, perhaps later
 2019-05-27, 06:14 #42 sweety439   Nov 2016 22×691 Posts For Williams prime MM 2, the "Max n" is not 83,000,000, since it is not verified whether any undiscovered Mersenne primes exist between the 47th (M43,112,609) and the 51st (M82,589,933). Also, for Williams prime MP 2, the "Max n" is 8589934591 = 2^33-1, not 8,590,000,000, since it is not known whether F33 = 2^(2^33)+1 is prime or not.

 2019-05-27, 10:02 #43 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 2×1,433 Posts I've changed the n-max for Proth prime k=1 so this value will be listed for Williams MP 2. The n-max for Williams MM 2 = n-max for Riesel k=1 (=Mersenne primes = GIMPS) is correct here. The GIMPS milestone lists (currently) "All exponents below 83 676 167 have been tested at least once." so this is the same value taken for all other sequences in the Wiki. The double check (=verified) is only available for GIMPS, (mostly) no other prime seq. in the Wiki is double checked by others (hardware & software) and searched ranges or found primes (Top5000 or not) are depend on any remark in the forum or other web sources.
 2019-05-28, 15:56 #44 sweety439   Nov 2016 22·691 Posts The "Max n" of Williams PP 158 is 25000, not 50000.
