How many exponents?
I know that the milestones record lots of key information, but I wonder how many exponents have been checked overall by GIMPS? Is there a record of this?
(I know that I could in theory check how many primes there are up to a certain limit, but that would be an estimate).

Looking at: https://www.mersenne.org/primenet/
and then doing some sums. From 2 to 999999999 there are 50847534 primes. Using these as exponents GIMPS has found factors for 29285332. Of the remaining, 979550 have been LL and DC'ed. Of the remaining, 658641 have had a single LL with no error. And there are 50 known primes. GIMPS (either as an organization or its members) has verified all previous work done by others. So all of those exponents have been tested. A number of those with factors had their factors found after they were DC'ed (or LL'ed). You could say all 50847534 have been checked in some form or other by GIMPS. And there are more above the 999999999 level that have also been tested (by factoring), but let's not count them.

More like 50 in 30 million since ~20 million are still to be tested in the range given. But this only covers the lower exponents up to 1 billion, it is expected that the frequency of primes will drop as the exponents get larger.

This occured to me just before I clicked "Submit" but I thought why let facts get into a nifty phrase ;)

There are 39 Mersenne Primes in the first 1 million prime exponents, but then only 4 between prime number 1M and 2M, then 4 between prime number 2M and 3M and 1 between 3M and 4M and so far 2 between 4M and 5M:
Code:

It is automated now from the hourly update:
http://hoegge.dk/mersenne/GIMPSstats.html It is just an automated summation of this table: https://www.mersenne.org/primenet/ So yes LL and PRP are added together and LL DC + PRP DC. Last fiddled with by ATH on 20190102 at 15:07

In 2010+2011 the change in Factored is huge because the range 79.3M to 1000M opened up October? 2008 and was being factored. Then the change in Factored rose again from 2014 with the popularity of mfaktc and GPU factoring. Last fiddled with by ATH on 20190102 at 18:00
