Sorry
No, you guys are totally right, and I was totally wrong. I did not notice until this morning as I set my computer on its merry way for what I thought was the last 0.6E15, and realised I was a whole magitude adrift.
But I doubt I have the computer resources to run this much further. Each 1E15 takes about 8 hours, so the whole exercise will take someone 10 days. I will complete to 4E15, and then release this one. Regards Robert Smith

n=55 [1E16,2E16] = 214250 n=55 [2E16,3E16] = 211102 n=55 [3E16,3.61E16] = 131672 Every 3prp output by your program was indeed a prime! None failed the tests with PARI. 229947 + 214250 + 211102 + 131672 = 786971 est(54) = 225950 (actual = 230143) est(55) = 772429 (actual = 786971)

OK, n=56 is complete!
Estimate was 280214. Final count after isprime() PARI checking script: 285415 2^n = 72057594037927936 so I used a kmax of 72060T. Output: n=56, kmin=0T, kmax=72060T, version=5.0, here T=10^12 Starting the sieve... Using the first 11 primes to reduce the size of the sieve array [285415 lines removed] The sieving is complete. Number of Prp tests=1503700301 Time=187990 sec. So that's 2 days, 4 hours, 13 minutes, 10 seconds. That's the end of it, not going to start n=57, there are too many of them!
