Wow - thanks! Gmp-ecm never stops impressing me. I'm beginning to regret my strategy of starting with a small B1, I'm still on my 174th failing curve with B1 up to 35000...
I don't think I'll bother with the 160kdigit next term, it's probably time to look more closely at the algebra.

Bosh!

All the known factors in the numerators are now up at http://fatphil.org/maths/sqrt_cf/sqrt5.html

I'll need to read up on the denominators a bit more before deciding if there's anything more to discover.

]I am prepared to spend a day or two on your 160K-digit composite if you think it worthwhile.

You should have switched to GNFS for the C135 IMO.

Now I've worked out the algebraic structure, these are just a^n+b^n and a^n-b^n sequences. I don't think there's any need to hunt for factors any more, at least on the numerator side, but I'll continue to fill out a decent sized table of factors on the denominator side, mostly for schitzengiggles. A deeper hunt for PRPs on the denominator side should be done still.

In that case all of them will be divisible by smaller Lucas numbers, and therefore none can be prime.

Congrats, you've solved the first half of the conjecture!

Edit: how did you work out it was half-a-lucas?

After hitting "Factorize", I then clicked on the link under where it says "number". Since the number was already on the DB, it simplified it to the shortest known formula.

 2022-08-29, 19:07 #21 Dr Sardonicus     Feb 2017 Nowhere 11000010011102 Posts The fundamental unit $\epsilon$ > 1 of the ring of algebraic integers in Q(sqrt(5)) is the "golden ratio" $\frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}$. We have $\epsilon^{n}\;=\;\frac{L_{n}\;+\;F_{n}\sqrt{5}}{2}.$ Thus, the Lucas and Fibonacci numbers satisfy $L_{n}^{2}\;-\;5F_{n}^{2}\;=\;4\cdot(-1)^{n}$. Both Ln and Fn are even when n is divisible by 3. The numerators and denominators of the SCF for sqrt(5) (solutions to x2 - 5y2 = ยฑ1) are thus x = (1/2)L3k and y = (1/2)F3k. Now L3k is divisible by Ld for every divisor of 3k whose cofactor is odd, and F3k is divisible by Fd for every divisor d of 3k. You have to be a little careful in translating this to results about (1/2)L3k and (1/2)F3k.

Let me know how (if) I can help.
