Updates are tedious but necessary
My monthly tribute to the world of number theory.
Largest CSG found during the past 4.3 weeks: 1.264846947 (p=113,109,089 / q=3,745,830) Code:
max. p searched: q <= 1000: 1.908e+13 1000 < q <= 2690: 1.023e+13 2690 < q <= 1e+5: 1.770e+11 1e+5 < q <= 2e+5: 5.720e+10 2e+5 < q <= 5e+5: 4.600e+10 5e+5 < q <= 1e+6: 2.400e+10 1e+6 < q <= 2e+6: 1.20e+10 2e+6 < q <= 4e+6: 3.0e+9 (only even q are examined) g/[phi(q)*log²(p_{2})]: 0.9241119774 my underappreciated formula: 1.0251848498 g/[phi(q)*log²(p_{1})]: 2.2178622671 Finding a CSG above 2 by any other measure is, IMHO, impossible. But I have to be careful here since it's an open problem how large that value can actually be. Data might suggest that a global maximum depends on the ratio log(p)/log(q), in the sense that the largest CSG are attained when log(p)/log(q) is just a little above 1. It may be that CSG cannot be larger than, say, 1.2, if log(p)/log(q) is larger than 2 or thereabouts. All very sketchy at the moment, maybe I'll write a paper about it when the pandemic is over...
