I tested n=141 with the old executable upto k=5,555*10^13
This is the closest i got: Code:
43354856050725*2^141+1 is 3PRP! (0.0004s+0.0004s) 43354856050725*2^1411 is 3PRP! (0.0002s+0.0038s) 43354856050725*2^(141+1)+1 is 3PRP! (0.0002s+0.0022s) 43354856050725*2^(141+1)1 is 3PRP! (0.0002s+0.0021s) 2^141+43354856050725 is 3PRP! (0.0001s+0.0021s) 2^14143354856050725 is 3PRP! (0.0001s+0.0030s) 2^(141+1)+43354856050725 is 3PRP! (0.0001s+0.0023s) 2^(141+1)43354856050725 is composite: [2FAAB440A92EB3DC] (0.0001s+0.0022s)

Okay, i'll test 142 then. I'm running the 'sieve' for a day or so on a p3 700 and see what pops up. For 135 i didn't find any upto 1.196*10^13 12 had primes for the first 6 forms, of which 2 had also primes for the 7th form

Wow 37!!
So far every test I have put the new program through was passed. So I believe it is working fine.
I ran the complete test on bases upto n=37. (and still going). And that base produced a whopping 83 octoproth primes. Secondly, both bases 32 and 33 have no octoproth primes. Last fiddled with by Dougy on 20050418 at 23:32

Hmmm a bug in Dario Alpern's ECM
When I put these (and others) into the batch factorisation:
2^39540206575755 2^39539552526135 and test for primality it says (even if i just type in the decimal too!) 9549238133 is composite 10203287753 is composite However if I factorize them instead 9549238133 = 9549238133 10203287753 = 10203287753 implying they're prime. This means that I will have missed some octoproths... But fortunately I kept the sieved files. URL: http://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM

The "deep" version sieves upto p < 10^7, which means that for n <= 45 all the candidates will be automatically prime for 2^n+/k forms! You definitely need to recheck base 32 and 33! Last fiddled with by axn on 20050419 at 03:57

Interesting things...
After rechecking the small bases, I've updated the text file again. It should be fixed. I've completed upto n=41. Some interesting properties...
Number of octoprothprimes for n=27,28,29,... 1,2,1,1,2,0,0,7,17,11,90,28,83,331,109,... n=40 alone has 331 octoprothprimes To think only the other day I was hoping to break the 100 mark. Number of kvalues unsieved (octo_deep) for n=27,28,29,... over all possible kvalues. 2,4,4,2,19,22,13,110,137,85,802,360,844,4434,1651,7552,...

There are no hidden octo's in there

Wow lots of holes.
Wow thanks, I didn't think there could be so many missing... it's all updated now.
So there might be octo's for all bases after 27. I've added the smallest octo for each base upto 71. Most Wanted: n=72... searched k<1000000000000.

(0.0001s+0.0024s) Close to 2 million numbers survived the sieve. Newpgen didn't make sence after this, since it removed candidates much slower than i was able to prp them. I'll try 157 (another 7 mod 15) next.
