I finished my range 360e9 to 400e9, nothing found, not even a near wilson prime.

Exactly my thoughts!

wblipp,

Since I joined the forum, R.D. Silverman has recommended both the Sierpinski project and NFS@home numerous times.

Now I wait only for a parallel FFT code from David Harvey, it could take 2-3 months. I have written other parts of the algorithm, using David's ideas.

 2012-01-31, 12:48 #115 maxal     Feb 2005 22×32×7 Posts This is a nice search project. Do you maintain database of Wilson quotients modulo p in the search? They would be helpful in finding other related primes such as generalized Wilson primes p of order n satisfying the congruence $(n-1)!(p-n)!\equiv (-1)^n\pmod{p^2}$ (alternatively, the Wilson quotient $((p-1)!+1)/p \equiv H_n \pmod{p}$, where $H_n$ is the n-th harmonic number). See sequences A128666, A079853, A152413 in the OEIS. Last fiddled with by maxal on 2012-01-31 at 12:49

should be $((p-1)!+1)/p \equiv H_{n-1} \pmod{p}$ for the order n generalized Wilson prime. So order 1 generalized Wilson primes are conventional Wilson primes, order 2 generalized Wilson primes are near-Wilson primes p with Wilson quotient modulo p equal 1. However, order n>2 generalized Wilson primes are not near-Wilson primes.

 2012-10-10, 21:09 #117 MrRepunit     Mar 2011 Germany 2·32·5 Posts Hi. Is there any news related to the code improvement? Danilo
 2012-10-10, 22:42 #118 MrRepunit     Mar 2011 Germany 9010 Posts Hi Robert. I just found and read the paper you co-authored. Nice work. I really liked the algorithmic improvements. My math level is restricted to theoretical physics stuff, so I could not follow every detail. Is it still possible that you publish the source code? For the interested readers: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1209.3436 For the impatient readers: The search is now complete up to 1013, no new Wilson prime was found.

Very interesting, it seems to me to be a well-written and in depth research paper, besides the obvious "practical" (massive) improvements. I would also like to see some source, because I would like to help extend the search bound even further. (My number theory class covered Wilson's theorem last week. )

Sorry for my late answer. See the updated paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1209.3436
The search is complete up to 2*10^13. I will see if I could release the code, a not small part of the code is from David Harvey. The idea to use larger e>6 values is completely comes from them, I have coded it.

Thanks for the update. Does this new code support multiple cores like you were talking about before? I wouldn't mind playing with your new code if you are able to release it.
