Default Project Description

This project is an extension of the original Sierpinski/Riesel problems. It is attempting to solve the Sierpinski/Riesel problems for base 5 by determining the smallest Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 numbers. Therefore, primes of the form k*5^n+/-1 are being sought for even k's.

A distributed effort is currently ongoing in support of the project.

Sierpinski Base 5 - The smallest even k Sierpinski base 5 number is suggested to be k=159986. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n+1 is prime for each even k < 159986. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 47 values:
k = 6436, 7528, 10918, 24032, 26798, 29914, 31712, 36412, 37292, 41738, 44348, 44738, 45748, 51208, 55154, 58642, 59912, 60394, 62698, 64258, 67612, 67748, 68492, 71492, 74632, 76724, 77072, 81556, 83936, 84284, 90056, 92158, 92182, 92906, 93484, 105464, 109208, 109988, 110488, 118568, 126134, 133778, 138514, 139196, 144052, 152588, 154222

Riesel Base 5 - The smallest even k Riesel base 5 number is suggested to be k=346802. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n-1 is prime for each even k < 346802. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 130 values
k = 1396, 2488, 3622, 4906, 5374, 11812, 17152, 18656, 22478, 22934, 23906, 26222, 27994, 35248, 35816, 48764, 49568, 52922, 53546, 57406, 63838, 64598, 66916, 68132, 70082, 71146, 72532, 76354, 81134, 84466, 88444, 92936, 97366, 97768, 100186, 102818, 102952, 102976, 104944, 109238, 109838, 109862, 114986, 119878, 127174, 130484, 131848, 134266, 136804, 138172, 143632, 145462, 145484, 146264, 146756, 147844, 150344, 151042, 152428, 154844, 159388, 162434, 162668, 164852, 170386, 170908, 171362, 173198, 174344, 175124, 177742, 178658, 180062, 182398, 187916, 189766, 190334, 194368, 195872, 201778, 204394, 206894, 207394, 207494, 210092, 213988, 231674, 238694, 239062, 239342, 243686, 243944, 245114, 246238, 248546, 256612, 259072, 262172, 265702, 266206, 267298, 268514, 270748, 271162, 273662, 285598, 285728, 289184, 296024, 298442, 301016, 301562, 304004, 305716, 306398, 313126, 316594, 318278, 322498, 325918, 325922, 326834, 327926, 329584, 330286, 331882, 335414, 338866, 338948, 340168

History
Robert Smith originally presented the idea of a Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 search on 2004-9-17, in the primeform yahoo group. Using {3,7,13,31,601} as the covering set, he proposed that k=346802 is the smallest Riesel base 5 number. Shortly afterwards, Guido Smetrijns proposed that k=159986 is the smallest Sierpinski base 5 number.
After doing most of the initial work himself, Robert posted in the mersenneforum.org on 2004-9-28, and thus, the distributed effort began. Other principle players in the development, management, and growth of the project are Lars Dausch, Geoff Reynolds, Anand S Nair, and Thomas Masser.

Not up to date. If you have time:

It seems it's now 45 SB5 & 117 RB5.
Stat for 2011 too?

Thanks.
