k = 405777203685, n = 120
Thats the only one for k < 10^13. Robert, the last attachment had a windows executable (console mode). You can run it from cmd prompt and redirect the output to a file.

Oops
Oops should have tried first!
However, how do you write the line script to create an output file? It is years since I saw dos. I tried this c:\octo 50 10 and got an output on my screen with about 10 candidates. Are these candidates or are they in fact octos? Sorry to be a bit naive, but I cannot read music and I cannot read other people's computer programs! Regards Robert Smith

odd statistics
I ran Axn1's prgram, up to 10^10 for n=50 through 58. The number of candidates (octos?) produced by the programme are:
50 11 51 5 52 47 53 7 54 28 55 27 56 5 57 18 58 17 I wonder what is so special about 52, it seems statistically well outside of normal variances? Regards Robert Smith

Octo RMA1.74
This sounds like a nice easy addition to RMA 1.74, and will be listed under "Preferences" "Other options" "Octoproth".
I'll need about a week to get on it. If there are any additional behaviours or options, that you think should be included under the octoproth option, please post them. TTn

Incidentally, these "heavy weight" n's all seem to be of the form 3x+1.

New Record!
Playing around with Axn1's software has allowed Great Britain to regain the World record for largest octoproth. Hurrah for that, hip, hip, hooray.

Well done robert, they're all prime by the way. However the largest known is
k=405777203685 n=120 found by axn1.

Small Octoproths
These are the smallest octoproths for their corresponding bases. Why 56 is so large is a real headscratcher.
