Should MM31 be added to the search?
I strongly need your opinion.
Aketilander just pointed out that E.W.Mayer worked on MM31 up to 10^{15}, and showed his will to take it to 86 bits. 1  I can't test mmff because of lacking of a newgeneration GPU: is the program ready to work on MM31? 2  Do you think that the new double Mersenne number shoud be added to the reservations list? Thanks in advance for your opinion. Luigi Last fiddled with by ET_ on 20120923 at 10:46

MM31 doesn't work at the moment in mmff, it says:
"WARNING: exponents < 1000000 are not supported!" which is wrong since MM31 = M2147483647 > 1000000.

Oliver is not working on k ranges. It would probably be easier to yank the relevant kernels out of mfaktc and add them to mmff.

Well, I will wait until mmff is mature for production use, then I will kindly ask if you (or someone around here) is going to take the challenge... or explain to me where and how to work I still have little knowledge of CUDA programming, but I'm eager to learn. Meanwhile, the website will be ready to delivery whatever double Mersenne with p prime. Luigi
