There are numerous gaps above 3103 that exist in the space up to 1.2e15, but 3103 is the smallest gap not in that space.

I'm exploring 1.2e15 to 9e15 using Thomas11's suite of programmes.

So, how can I help? currently looking at above 1.5e16,

Since we have found everything upto 3103, the only interesting things are above, right?

Correct...but

Fischer already found 3169 148261013820413

The best way to approach this is to just run with Thomas11's suite and start at 9e15 - your results over a large range will then feed into the broader picture when I eventually catch up. If you want to start at 1.5e16 that's fine, but just post everything > 3103 once you get to, say 1.55e16 or 1.6e16.

I just wanted to be sure I understood what I should do. I will start at 9e15 and go to 9.05e15 to see the scale/ lenght of the project


edit: are we missing 3016?

You can assume that. I'm not at home to check. Welcome to the search!

Just to make sure that we all use the same "language" when refering to gaps and ranges:

Fischer ran his search up to "1.28e15" in "real" numbers.
When Rudy235 started this thread, he was looking at numbers of the form 6*k+-1. The script/NewPGen combo also uses this form. Thus, Fischer's limit of 1.28e15 translates to 2.1333e14 in terms of k.

The same holds for the gap lengths: Our gaps are 1/6th of Fischer's gaps.

So, in order to continue from Fischer's upper bound we need to start from k=2.1333e14.

To give you some idea for planning your work (ranges):

The Perl/NewPGen combo is able to crunch a range of about 1e11 (in terms of k) per hour on a single cpu core.

A range like Fischer's 1.28e15 (=6*2.1333e14) would take about 90 (single core) cpu days. Extending Fischer's range up to 2.0e15 (=6*3.3333e14) would take 50 cpu days.

Then I searched 6 time higher than I intended.if I should search at k= 15e6 for real 9e15 and beyond, right?

Sorry - my bad. Thomas11 is right about the situation. In his run_new.bat file, you need to set kmin at 9000000 and kmax at say 9500000

I have 14 cores working on this starting at kmin 2333333 up to 8000000
