 2006-06-21, 23:13 #1 jasong     "Jason Goatcher" Mar 2005 DB316 Posts Don't know how to work on Cunningham numbers. I compiled ecm a couple weeks ago, so I know it's recent. Basically, I'd like to spend some time on one of my dual-core processor cores doing Cunningham numbers, but I have some questions: How does the listing format work? If I remember correctly, there are 3 numbers with commas between them. How do I "translate" this into the formula? Also, and I'm sorry if actually doing the work answers the questions, but I've only done ECMNet and don't know how to do manual work. I looked through the thread titles and nothing jumped out at me as possibly being helpful. If someone wants to assign me 1-2 weeks of "their" work to work on my computer, I'd be glad to help. Because of some other DC work I'm doing, I'm not actually going to work on this part until Friday or Saturday, but I'm willing to experiment until then to make sure I understand how things work. Thanks for any help. :)

The minus sign is normally put in. a, b- = $a^b - 1$ Sometimes you'll find a plus sign, like so: a, b+ = $a^b + 1$ If you're talking about homogeneous cunninghams, the formula is: a, b, n = $a^n - b^n$ Last fiddled with by fetofs on 2006-06-22 at 01:10

Okay, in that case I have two questions(maybe more later):

(1) What's the best way to reserve?(Should I go to another site to reserve?)

(2) Unfortunately, my room's been rearranged since I did this last, so I need instructions on making the ecm parameters.

Edit: Perhaps instead I should be looking at ecm servers.(I just rediscovered the Cunningham server. Sorry for bugging you guys. :( )

You can copy the decimal digits to a file and the start ecm from a command prompt as ecm 110000000 < file.txt >> results.txt

Actually, my original intention was to attempt those forum numbers. But since I seem to be accomplishing something very similar, and far easier, by connecting to the Cunningham server, instead of doing it manually, I've decided to go that route.

Thanks for pointing out the forum to me, though :)

Note:

Some of those tables are quite a bit out of date. A lot of numbers

Sam Wagstaff's web site contains more recent info.
