I had not considered that. Would like to see a lot more of the low-hanging fruit for R3 get knocked out.

Hmm, i´ll just throw my two penny´s in here.

I would say we should stick to get <6G up to 1M first, which already is a lot of work ^^
Above that area? I dont think we should realy try to dig so deep, rather focus on other way smaller bases first.

Those bases, such as those that were started by Reb, will require some sieve files.

I suggest we should make some sort of roadmap for the project in general and for bases like R3 and S3.

Testing the remaining k to n=100K for R3 will be one of the goals for 2021.


R3 is more interesting than other small-conjectured bases because it is so prime and it is the second smallest base.

Sounds like fun!

I've personally tried to sieve and send-to-BOINC a variety of exponent ranges, such that whatever one's interest for prime size there would be R3 work available.

Folks can individually test n=50-100k, or ~250k in 6-10G range (by asking for a chunk from me or later via BOINC), or ~1M range in k<2G; finally, one could sieve for oneself or for BOINC 500k-? in k=2G-6G.

I like offering variety; Gary likes a single n-value for the entire base. I try not to clutter up his pages with too much variety!

That reminds me, a status update: k=60-61G is at 72k, while k=61-63G is at 56k. Each is testing via LLR on a single core; when 60-61G reaches 100k that core will help with 61-63G, if I don't split the job sooner.

There is a ton of variety on this project without having to divide up individual bases as much as we are. There are bases ranging from >100,000 k's remaining at n=2500 to 1k remaining at n=5M. And of course there are still plenty of new bases.

With over 2000 bases it's a lot easier to administer if each base has as few of different search depths as possible. R3 is a bit too much. There are 9 different k-ranges of search depths. See the k's remaining page. Searching everything to n=100K will reduce that to 6.

And I'll get the sieve file for 6-10G to BOINC in the next couple weeks, getting that region to 500k and reducing the variety of n-depths by one more.

R3 tested to n=950k (900-950k) (0-2.147G)

31 primes found, 596 remain in this range

Results emailed, Base released
