Default Choose your own K and work on finding a top-5000 prime!

Below is a list of K values that can be reserved. Each K has at least
90 primes in the range n=0-50k. I have checked the top-5000 list
(as of Jan 2006) and none of these K values have primes reported so
they should be 'clean'.

Code:
       K    # primes  Notes
            n=0-50k

There are many considerations to picking a K: LLR runs faster on smaller values of K,
higher weight K's will have more candidates to test, and luck! You may want to check
the most recent top-5000 list and run the K in the range 50-100K or more before
embarking on a quest for a top-5000 prime.

To reserve a K, just leave a reply on this forum.

Nice table Larry!

One question and two notes

Q: What range of n is involved in computing the weight?

N1: Since we are not 15k anymore we can try k's not divisible by 15. I remember before you mentioned several. In fact from time to time I still work on one of them, k=67773, but I found no reportable primes yet.

N2: There was a program somewhere around to compute Nash/Robinson weights. Just to fill the table but they are not so helpful in finding prolific k's...

The weight is computed from sieving n=0-10k. I've updated the original
post with this information. This list takes all 79,000 candidates I
tested and sorted them by total number of primes. These all happen
to be 15k. I also plan on posting lists for # primes/candidates and
low-weight Ks. Those two lists should have many non-15k Ks.

I'm a little curious as to how this portion works... can someone help me out?

Hey everyone!

I like your table Larry. I think someone needs to set up a getting started link for new members, so they will know what programs to use & how to use them.

Sure thing! In the new RPS team drive and other group activities,
we have done the K selection and sieving for you. All you have to
do is run LLR. If you want to venture out into testing your own K,
you can select one here, sieve it, then run LLR yourself. It all
depends on how you want to work. The group searches are usually
split up into chunks of 3-4 days of work. If you run your own K and
find a productive one, you may stick with that one for months
reporting primes along the way. Basically, less communication is
needed and you have more 'control'.

For details on how to sieve and run LLR, you can see the post
in the 15k forum at http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=640
Note, the minimum n (nmin in the post) for a top-5000 prime is around
203000 now so I'd start with a range of 203000-250000. For the Ks
listed here, I would expect, *on average*, about 2 primes to be in that range.
The 'on average' meaning that the productivity of a certain K isn't really
known. Measuring the number of primes in the range 0-10k is a reasonable
first guess, but no guarantee. So the strategy may be to run a K in
the n=200-250k range and see how it goes. If no primes result, pick
another K. If you get 2-3 primes, you will probably want to continue
on in the 250k+ range. Of course, the larger the prime, the longer it'll
stick around on the top-5000 list.

I found the weight for k=698790798615 to be 1937.

When k>2^31 it has to be given to NewPGen as a product of factors less than 2^31. In the example above, k=1763*396364605. If such factorization does't exist then such k cannot be sieved using NewPgen.

Also, when using NewPGen be sure to check the "Verify results" box. There were reports of wrong results if it's not checked. I also log the removed numbers (Options-->Log the numbers removed).

And finally, sieve agressively, to say so, 24 hrs sieving is not enough (except for some very low weight k's or very small ranges of n). In my experience you cannot oversieve if you go to 1T (1000 bn), not even to 2T. If you have both Athlons and P-4's then sieve on Athlons, do LLR on P-4's.
