They are the second part of the PRPVDF run. They prove that the PRP was run without errors and that the number is composite.

Thanks.
Just as an aside, maybe it is a bit of a misnomer. It is like giving 99.9% of population "a certificate" of NOT being an MD or PhD :) Maybe these tests should be called "CONF", or "VAL", or "VER".

It's actually a certificate of proof of work. Not the end results of prime/composite.

I think of CERT as short for certification. You are certifying the validity of the proof file (which showed the Mersenne number to be prime or composite).

If it was "only" a proof of work, it would not be enough to count as a double check. It would be nice to test that, if we had a known faulty machine and disabled Gerbicz error checking and see if the proof failed. Last fiddled with by ATH on 20200822 at 11:08

After this long, I can't be sure. Maybe it was intended to be B2=67M.
