 2016-11-30, 02:20 #1 carpetpool     "Sam" Nov 2016 1010011002 Posts Trial Divison Improvement I also wanted to mention the trial division of numbers (of special forms) in PFGW for (a^n-b^n)/(a-b) (with prime n) for integer roots a, b should be reduced to only trial dividing numbers of the form 2kn+1 (or if it is faster, sieving values of 2kn+1 and then trial dividing). Although little interest is shown in finding prp factors of (a^n-b^n)/(a-b) other than the Mersenne Cofactors, I would strongly appreciate more and more searches for these factors from others. I am working hard at prp testing factors generalized base repunit forms, and a^n-b^n where a = b+1 more specifically. Thanks if someone knows how to do the trial division of these forms.

There is also a 500% factoring level. -f{8132}{y,8,1){f,8132} uses only primes which are of the form k*8132+1 where the resultant primes are also of the form j*8+1. Also, all factors of 8132 (2,19,107) are checked first. -f{8132}{y,8,1){p,8133} uses only primes which are of the form k*8132+1 where the resultant primes are also of the form j*8+1. Also, ALL primes <= 8133 are checked first. Note this is also available within the ABC and ABC2 file formats, and within those formats, expressions can also be used.
