An alternative to Aliqueit: suli.sage
I would like to propose here a program that computes an aliquot sequence.
This program does the same job as Aliqueit and is very easy to use. It has been written by Paul Zimmermann, Olivier Huber and myself. I have been using this program for years to calculate my aliquot sequences. It uses successively all the methods to decompose a cofactor: trivial division, ECM method, NFS method. This program is written in python and runs on Sage software. It uses CADONFS if the previous methods have failed. You will find all the necessary explanations to run and understand this program at the beginning of the "suli.sage" file, before the lines of code and throughout the program, in comments. To run the suli.sage program, you just need: 1) Sage software installed on your computer 2) CADONFS software installed on your computer 3) The program "suli.sage" as an attachment to this post 4) The file "Primes.sage" as an attachment to this post Let me show you an example: On FactorDB, I can see that the last calculated term of the sequence 15015^6 is the one from iteration 848. It is : 9834981195673212985850621515773881423695219406241982369361863287701490658008404 So I launch the program "suli.sage" in the Sage software and I enter the appropriate data, as shown below in red color, here is what is displayed on the screen, in a Linux terminal: Code:

Note that I can calculate as many different aliquot sequences as I want, simultaneously on one computer. I just have to make sure to change the 4digit number "xxxx" at the beginning of the suli.sage program. For each sequence this number must be different. You can put any 4digit number, but here I found it better if the 4digit number gives me information about the identity of the calculated sequence. As it was the sequence 15015^6, I have chosen xxxx=1506. Do not hesitate if you have any questions !

Great, thanks! I'll try it soon.
But eve before that I have comments. :) Would it be possible to write CADO NFS output to screen? For short factorizations it's ok like this and really long ones I'd do manually anyway, but for intermediate ones of a few hours, having an ETA would be nice. Or is it written to a file I could tail? And one small feature which might be easy to implement, could you add parsing of simple operations such as powers?

If you prefer this second version, please let me know, because I think I'll have to remove some more lines that are no longer needed (lines that display the error message if the NFS calculation fails). Quote:

IMPORTANT :
I forgot to mention one important thing in the very first post. From time to time you have to go and delete the old files called "cado.xxxx" in the folder "DIR/travail/" (DIR is the folder containing CADO_NFS). You should delete these files when you have finished the calculations for a sequence. If this is not done, the hard disk will fill up quickly.

Thanks for the cado output!
By my second comment I meant that it would be possible to use 2^20 as input instead of 1048576. Similar to what yafu does. Depending on sage's ability I think it might be either very easy to implement or quite some work. Last fiddled with by bur on 20210706 at 12:17

s(0,2^20) Or even any sequence with any arithmetic expression, as long as your number is an integer. An example : Code:

Everything seems to work well. Just for clarification, the index I give in s(i,n) is just to format the output? It doesn't seems to get terms from factordb. So how do I upload the new terms to factordb?

And one more thing, is ECM is only done with one thread?

I have a tiny bit of access time to my computer and I'm doing some quick answers today.
I won't be able to answer any more messages until early August. Quote:
But if you change the index i, the results will still be interpreted correctly by FactorDB. Another possibility is to read the data for a sequence automatically from the program. Please find attached a version of the program suli.sage that does this automatically, here for the sequence 276^5. You only need to run this program after entering the value for "xxxx" as usual and then the value for "sequence". To enter your results in FactorDB, you have to copy and paste the rows from the "sulixxxx" file into FactorDB. Unfortunately, yes, the ECM calculation is only done on a single thread at the moment. I had tried to do these calculations on multiple threads, but failed and didn't push it, because I don't yet have a computer with enough treads to do sequence calculations on multiple threads in parallel. The sage software cannot use the ECM method on multiple threads. So you have to download an ECM program from outside sage that can do this and call it as a subprocess, like we do for cadoNFS. Don't hesitate to let me know if I don't answer your questions, but you may have to wait for my new answer until early August this time !

Thanks, regarding ECM, I think the original GMPECM also does not support multithreading, at least yafu simply calls it several times simultaneously with different sigma values to achieve a multithreading effect.
Maybe a similar thing could be done with suli?
