Useless p1 work
Quote:
all b1's are smaller than m so they assume that the largest factor of p1 is m and they don't reach it. what a waste! Joss

So I see!
I tested 2^2511 b1=2 b2=2 and found the factor 27271151 Tks xilman You're right, b1 is actually b1+m There was no wasted cycle. I pushed the too early. Joss

Pminus1=79299433,660000,3465000,0,0
This will find any factor of 2^792994331 where factor = 2 * k * 79299433 + 1 and k has largest factor =< 3465000 and all other factors =< 660000. Actually, there are stage 2 extensions such that some k with largest factor =< (3465000 * a small integer) will be found, in certain cases. Last fiddled with by cheesehead on 20041128 at 13:31
