 2019-03-21, 13:58 #211 paulunderwood     Sep 2002 Database er0rr 5×787 Posts Code: ? floor((31.4*10^12/10^4)^4) 97211712160000000000000000000000000000 This is the number of core years to prove a 31.4 trillion digit number with Primo. Of course you would need to have a great big system, be prepared to backtrack over millenia, and expect Marcel (and decendants-of-Marcel) to build the tables. If you can use enough atoms to store the step information and the certificate without creating a black hole you will be doing well Last fiddled with by paulunderwood on 2019-03-21 at 14:08

Ha ha.

(Although an "infinite-small fraction" of an infinite time span
might be infinite or finite itself.)

 2019-03-21, 16:33 #213 danaj   "Dana Jacobsen" Feb 2011 Bangkok, TH 32·101 Posts Using GMP, assuming it all fits in memory and GMP scales fine, it's only 1.8 billion years to finish BPSW. My single threaded Primo calculation came out to only exp( 4.01 * (log(3140000000000)-log(2000)) + log(2313.8) ) / 60 / 60 / 24 / 365.25 = 550528055283376774128261550300497 years. Based on timings from a few years ago to compute various sizes up to 2000 digits, and assuming of course that we can just handwave practicality and scaling. AKS using Bernstein Theorem 4.1, about 5e59 years. But parallelism is trivial, so that will really help a lot.

With no activity since March of 2018, I suspect the user gave up.

 2021-07-18, 18:03 #218 davar55     May 2004 New York City 10000100010112 Posts I want to apologize to all for some of my blatant goofs and attitudes in the past. Some egregious claims, a wanting defense of the cosmology, even unclarity in this thread. This apology should yield some improvement from me.
 2021-08-21, 12:19 #219 LaurV Romulan Interpreter     "name field" Jun 2011 Thailand 24·613 Posts I have heard that now we have enough digits to solve a(20). Any takers? (or, how RDS would say, "have at it!" ) Last fiddled with by LaurV on 2021-08-21 at 12:21
