 2006-02-01, 05:38 #3 Kosmaj     Nov 2003 E2616 Posts Found the new largest OctoProth 1377602248158885 346 with 120 digits in k*2^n+/-1 members and 105 digits in 2^n+/-k ones. Releasing 339-347, all checked to 1.5E15 (1500T). Will work a little bit more on 348-350.
 2006-02-02, 00:21 #4 robert44444uk     Jun 2003 Oxford, UK 2,039 Posts Brill Well done Kosmaj, a notable scalp. just one thing, the difference between 2^k+n and 2^+k-n is probably worth noting. Regards Robert Smith
 2006-02-02, 03:46 #5 Kosmaj     Nov 2003 1110001001102 Posts Robert, thanks! I was about to release them at 1300T but I thought I better go to the next "nice" number (1500T). As for the difference between 2^n+k and 2^n-k it sure is 2k (a 16 digit number) but in comparison to numbers themselves it can /almost/ be ignored since the first 88 digits are the same and only the 17 least-significant digits are different. BTW, since you have moderator rights and Greenbank /kind of/ disappeared, can you edit the first post and enter the latest results. Thanks!

Maybe we should just await Greenbank's return and hope his absence is no more than a vacation. Either that or we will need new moderators Regards Robert Smith

 2006-02-13, 04:23 #9 Kosmaj     Nov 2003 2×1,811 Posts Robert Congrats on new records! If we use the criterion suggested by Jens Andersen to compare them, then the k=164... one is slightly larger, 2^n+/-k members have 113 digits, k*2^n+/-1 twins have 128 and k*2^(n+1)+/-1 ones have 129 digits.
 2006-02-13, 05:35 #10 Jens K Andersen     Feb 2006 Denmark 3468 Posts Hi. I recently joined the Mersenne forum. My record page http://hjem.get2net.dk/jka/math/simultprime.htm would compare the 4th of 8 primes. This is 2^(n+1)+k for an octoproth, so the larger k wins. It's a rule for my site (made with other forms in mind) and was not meant as a suggestion for you. By the way, I have increased the record for 12 simultaneous primes from 44 to 58 digits. This makes a dodecaproth record much harder.
