But then I would say low weight doesn't really matter. Either I test 100000 candidates for a given k and find 10 primes or I test 10000 and find one. Then move to the next low weight k and in the end I end up with the same number of LLRs and primes. Just spread over more than one k. Is it like that?

I test a couple low-weight k's as well as some of the highest; I like finding anomalies, but I don't think my choices are more prime-worthy per unit of search effort.
 2020-09-09, 07:21 #377 bur   Aug 2020 3210 Posts I looked into the matter why only primes show up as n for low n values. Here are some restrictions I found: If $n \equiv 0 \textrm{ mod } 2$ the Riesel number will be divisible by 3 (n = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, ...) If $n \equiv 1 \textrm{ mod } 10$ the Riesel number will be divisible by 11 (n = 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, ...) If $n \equiv 1 \textrm{ mod } 8$ the Riesel number will be divisible by 17 (n = 9, 17, 25, 33, 41, 49, ...) If $n \equiv 15 \textrm{ mod } 20$ the Riesel number will be divisible by 41 (n = 15, 35, 55, 75, ...) If $n \equiv 19 \textrm{ mod } 70$ the Riesel number will be divisible by 71 (n = 19, 89, 159, 229, ...) There might be more. I am not sure though if this will rather hit composites than primes. The 2nd condition removes 11, 31, 41, 71, so it doesn't really seem like it. Last fiddled with by bur on 2020-09-09 at 07:35

 2020-09-19, 13:26 #380 Happy5214     "Alexander" Nov 2008 The Alamo City 40710 Posts The (near-)Woodall k's listed in https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...&postcount=363, again except for k=1993191, have been completed to n=375k. The only prime found was 667071*2^373497-1. Edit: Another prime, 667071*2^358286-1, was already reported (by me) to the Prime-Wiki in August, so I accidentally left it off here.

I've completed the remaining RPS 9th and 10th Drive k's with missing ranges from n=300k to 325k. 18 primes were found, which are attached. It'll probably be until the end of 2021 before they're finished to n=400k, the ultimate goal.

 2020-11-18, 08:47 #384 Happy5214     "Alexander" Nov 2008 The Alamo City 11·37 Posts The (near-)Woodall k's listed in https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...&postcount=363, this time and in the future including k=1993191, have been completed to n=400k. The primes for k=1993191 have already been posted to Prime-Wiki and will not be listed here for the sake of brevity. (There are 26 total below n=400k.) The following primes were found for the other k's:667071*2^380058-1 1183953*2^384787-1 665127*2^385516-1 1268979*2^387863-1
