What's next?
Hi,
What's next after 11,212+? May I suggest 7,253 and 11,217? (both easy) 7,253 has been among the first 5 holes in any table for the longest period of time. It first appeared as a 5th hole back in July '98. For a more ambitious project 2,719+ and 2,736+ would be nice. Along with my doing 2,737+ and 2,749+ it would finish all base 2 numbers to 750 bits.

I thought Jens Franke was going to do 7,253 but perhaps I misremembered. Sam is well overdue his normal schedule for reminding us who is doing what, so perhaps we should ask him for an update. We don't want to do anything too easy or sieving takes too little time and administrative costs outweigh computational cost. Perhaps a more significant benchmark would be to clear the base 2 tables to 768 bits. Paul

If you're ever up for a change of pace, the 151 digit cofactor of the 200 digit number 100^99+99^100 is still up for grabs. ECM is complete at the 50 digit level, plus 400 curves at B1=100M. Plus, it'd be interesting to see whether SNFS or GNFS would be better here. Based on GGNFS experience, it seems that the linear SNFS polynomial, 99^20 x  100^20 would make things difficult.

I seemed to have started something with the x^y+y^x primefinding project. Andrey Kulsha found lots of primes and strong pseudoprimes and began the XYYXF project to factor numbers of this type. (100,99).c151 has been one of his most wanted numbers for a long time now. I'll give it some thought. Paul

There are currently six unreserved numbers in this category. I just asked Sam Wagstaff to reserve 2,751+,c221 (aka the 221digit cofactor of 2^751+1) for our next project. It has a 221digit cofactor and so there is a fair chance that we may find a record penultimate factor of well over a hundred digits. We won't start this one until the current number has finished sieving, in perhaps 23 weeks. Next in line is yet to be decided, but doing the 153digit cofactor of 2^760+1 by GNFS has some attraction.

I'm willing to coordinate a search so we're not searching the same ranges. If there are others who are interested in participating, let me know. Jes, perhaps you and I can settle on some parameters to use and start dividing up the search space. I have no experience selecting parameters for a number this large so advice from you or anyone else is heartily welcome. Don
