Thumbs up RMA 1.6 fixes LLR bugs!

I have altered LLR, so it behaves correctly, ie restart/stop.
LLR continues to run as a process, after you have shut it down(sometimes).
The fix forces the end process, and disables any network communication still running. This ensures no large primes you find are not distributed without your knowledge.

Oh yeah I've made a few other nifty changes too!
Sum of least squares, is a statistical approach for 15k hunters.
It takes predicted data, or PD and observed data OD, and finds the imaginary line which results in the least sum of squares. The reason this is a good approach is that predicted data, does not take into account the small log.
SSE2, now is optional with the flip of a switch.

Version 1.6 is fully automated so that it is a one step procedure, that continuously hunts for primes, returning the results onscreen.


Version 1.6 You need this software.
Coming ~ 6/1/04



If there are any additional suggestions that you would like included in this program, please comment before 5/29/04.

Lightbulb request for RMA

I would like to get the custom colors back, like the first version had.
Maybe you could include some audio visual themes for people to pick from, like windows has. That would be neat!

Default option

I want the option to automatically submit the prime numbers that I find, into the database without having to type in the information.
Is that reasonable?

Done! Custom colors are now included with version 1.6.
As far as the themes, I have already planned such an idea.
This could be available as a seperate download.
Hunting(camo backgrounds, mouse weapons)
Matrix(encoded backgrouds, mouse spoon, hidden features white rabbit)

Hmmm, doesn't sound totally unreasonable.
That may take my a few days to answer.

Good idea, though first time prime finders, will still have to start a new account like everyone else.
They would also have to allow windows to remember their password into the database.

Thanks

Question LLR for other bases (!=2)

I'm going to dig out the 1969 paper Jean refers to in his
posting on the maths of LLR. Does anyone know if this
paper or any others looks at the possibilities for bases
other than two? I'm doing some work with k*3^n+-1
where such things might be useful.

Thanks,
Andrew

I not optimistic that it's the same theorem, since I believe this to be unique. Although I'm sure you're aware that PFGW, is used to test any base b.

It's good to hear you're working on k*3^n+-1, which I was very curious about as well, since it is the next step of a further generalization.
Keep us up to date, about your primes! And good luck hunting.

If you read the primeform group in Yahoo, George intends to include the IBDWT code from LLR into his gwnum library (which is used by PFGW). If IBDWT can support bases other than 2, I'm sure he will do it. I'm looking forward to having those improvements in PFGW.

Thanks for the responses. I've also asked about other bases in the primenumbers yahoo group, and mentioned that there are a few
papers by HC Williams that look at Lucas (tests for other bases. There
are a couple specifically for base 3 that I cannot access.

I've also asked in the primeform group about what forms IBDWT
will help. Keep an eye out for responses!

Thumbs up Kill LLR

I just found out, that I re-invented the wheel!....
Visual Basic comes built in with a handy process viewer with kill function.
LLR has no problem saving it when terminated this way.
I can make a small executeable that members could use to end LLR safely,
like say before a re-boot etc.
If anyone is interested.
Take full advantage of the speed with k=2--31.

Windows only, sorry
