ggnfs
I'm wondering about polyselect.exe for gnfs. What is the formula for the score E(F1,F2) of the polynominals?
I thought it was a function of the coefficients only but the same polynominal can have slightly different score if the search parameters was different: bestpoly1.txt bestpoly2.txt Scores are 8.024327e007 and 8.121436e007 for the same polynomial and only difference is maxS1 70 or 72 which should only be the stage1 "cutoff" value. What about the skew? I read in another post here it should be (c_0/c_d)^(1/d). But skewness in my example file is 464.436 while: (c_0/c_d)^(1/d) = (27473397726011234846439353544/10516227540)^(1/6) = 1173.569.

The formula for E is equation 5.7 of Murphy's 'Polynomial Selection for the Number Field Sieve'. The root properties are determined by the function alpha(F) Quote:
