Great! Got you down.

Good find. Our first n > 25K for the effort! 56 k's to go base 16.

Edit: I tried moving these into the new 'report primes here' thread that I just now created but it put them before the main post since they were written earlier. So I'll just leave them here. Please report all future primes in that thread...sorry that it wasn't created earlier.

I think I forgot to report here, it's close to being done to n=10000 now

Hi Xentar; welcome to the effort! I'll show this one as reserved by you.

Quick question...Have you already LLR'd until n=128000 or is that how far you are going to LLR it in the future?

You should sieve until the rate at which candidates are being removed approximately equals the rate at which they can be LLR'd.

To be very specific, you should do an LLR test of ONE candidate that is at 70% of the n-range that you are sieving and sieve until the removal rate equals that testing time. So if you are sieving n=100K-200K, you should run an LLR test on a candidate around n=170K (one that already has small factors removed). However long that takes to LLR is the removal rate you should sieve to. Sieving to P=4P (same as P=4000T if I remember correctly) sounds a bit high but I don't know what range of n you are sieving.

 2007-12-25, 16:20 #40 Xentar     Sep 2006 11·17 Posts Hi, yes, I have already LLR'd to n = 130000, and I will try to do it, until I find a prime ;) I sieved till n = 1,000,000. At the moment, I get a rate of 20 minutes per factor, and I need about half an hour per LLR test. So I think, I can continue sieving a while. Ok, thank you. Edit: Another question. When I started Sierpinski Base 18, I was told that there are three more k: 18, 324 and 381. For 381 I found a prime - but what is with 18 and 324? There were some "problems", because the k = base, but don't we need to find a prime here, too? Last fiddled with by Xentar on 2007-12-25 at 16:25

For now, we are not searching k's that are multiples of the base due to some of the issues involved. In this case, k=18 and k=324 for Sierp Base 18 are Generalized fermat #'s and are unlikely to yield a prime with current technology. See the last para. of the project definition in the 'Come join us' thread. The same issue exists for Sierp Base 22 for k=22 and k=484.

We will take up the issue of multiples of the base after the project has been going for a month or two.

Thanks,
Gary

Woo hoo! I found a prime! And it's my first prime ever!

I don't think it qualifies for top-5000 status, but here's what I found in my lresults.txt file today as a nice little Christmas present:

4885*2^243388+1 is prime!

This prime is equivalent to 4885*16^60847+1; this means that k=4885 has been eliminated for Sierpinski Base 16!

k=4885 has been searched up to n=60973; it went a little over since I didn't notice the prime until a few more candidates for that k had been tested. I am unreserving k=4885; the remaining sieved candidates (up to n=100,000) are attached to this post in case anyone wants to search this k further.

Also included in the archive attached to this post are the residuals for both k=2908 and k=4885 up to n=60973 (for k=4885) and n=61188 (for k=2908). I am still searching k=2908.

Yeehaw! 55 k's to go on Sierp base 16. I'll remove it from the big sieve.
