R43 at n=18122, no (probable) primes found

Unfortunately, srsieve cannot sieve R43, since k and b are both odd.

Unfortunately, this does not help for the R70 problem, since k=376 already has the prime (376*70^6484-1)/3, and the only remain k (k=811) still does not have any (probable) primes

 2020-10-29, 03:28 #1075 sweety439     Nov 2016 47008 Posts If k is rational power of base (b), then .... (let k = b^(r/s) with gcd(r,s) = 1) * For the Riesel case, this is generalized repunit number to base b^(1/s) * For the Sierpinski case, if s is odd, then this is generalized (half) Fermat number to base b^(1/s) * For the Sierpinski case, if s is even, then this is generalized repunit number to negative base -b^(1/s)
 2020-10-31, 00:22 #1076 sweety439     Nov 2016 26×3×13 Posts These problems generalized the Sierpinski problem and the Riesel problem to other bases (instead of only base 2), since for bases b>2, k*b^n+1 is always divisible by gcd(k+1,b-1) and k*b^n-1 is always divisible by gcd(k-1,b-1), the formulas are (k*b^n+1)/gcd(k+1,b-1) for Sierpinski and (k*b^n-1)/gcd(k-1,b-1) for Riesel, for a given base b>=2, we will find and proof the smallest k>=1 such that (k*b^n+1)/gcd(k+1,b-1) (for Sierpinski) or (k*b^n-1)/gcd(k-1,b-1) (for Riesel) is not prime for all n>=1, any k that obtains a full covering set in any manner from ALGEBRAIC factors will be excluded, in many instances, this includes k's where there is a partial covering set of numeric factors (or a single numeric factor) and a partial covering set of algebraic factors that combine to make a full covering set, all k below the lowest k found to have a NUMERIC covering set must have a prime including multiples of the base (MOB) but excluding the k's that obtains a full covering set in any manner from ALGEBRAIC factors, for the lowest k found to have a NUMERIC covering set for all bases b<=2048 and b = 4096, 8192, 16384, 32768, 65536, see Sierpinski and Riesel
