Default Kriesel blog sub-site map

Welcome to the GIMPS computing reference blog site map / table of contents. (See end of this post for acknowledgments of the many who have helped)

Please see also the Announcements page.

This page is l.....o....n....g. You may find it useful to search it for keywords or a phrase using your web browser's function for that. I do, and I wrote it! In Firefox, for example, Ctrl-F, click at the lower left, fill in the search string in the Find in page box, then click ^ or v to search upward or downward.
This collection began as gpu-oriented only, and grew (evolved, some might say ballooned or metastasized!) to include cpu-oriented application coverage, introductory material, history, and more.
For those who would like a less mammoth map, there's an outline/thread only version following. You may want to bookmark that.

The whole blog is a work in progress. Please be patient and understanding. It's a big job. (Three years and counting...)
Polls and poll-related threads are not (yet) included in this site map. To find those you'll need to go here for now.

Post comments in discussion threads, and not in reference threads. Discussion threads are shown here in green bold italic font, and are few (about 1.5% of the total).

This is a reference thread. Do not post here. Posting comments in reference threads is discouraged. Such posts may be moved or deleted without warning or recourse. (Rarely, a discussion post regardless of post location is incorporated into a reference thread, with credit to the poster. So unattributed posts can be assumed to be authored by kriesel.)

Discussion thread posts will not be enumerated here. Reference thread posts will be.

Reference material discussion thread I suggest new participants skip reading this discussion thread link, at least initially. Come back later if you're curious. https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23383

Suggested reading for new participants begins with the new participant reference thread immediately following, continuing through at least post 6 of the Mersenne Prime GPU computing reference material thread, and for cpu application to GIMPS, both https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23900 for prime95/mprime and https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23427 for Mlucas (far down this page in both cases).
