I found a very easy one (randomly selected a nice number and spent <1 GhzD effort) in M3331331 yesterday, but the number was factored previously: [url=http://mersenne.ca/M3331331]mersenne.ca[/url], [url=https://www.mersenne.org/report_exponent/?exp_lo=3331331&full=1]Primenet Details[/url]. What bothers me is that the same PRP residue is identical for the PRP test with 1 factor and the PRP test with 2 factors? This is a bug, isn't it?
The factor I'm most proud of is this lucky 118bit one in [url=https://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/70553939]M70553939[/url] which I found in normal LL/PRP testing. 
[QUOTE=gLauss;570211]This is a bug, isn't it?
[/QUOTE] Yep. Bug for sure, unless you used gpuowl, which totally ignores the factors, and does prp for the whole Mxx, in which case both residues (and the semantic result, like the cofactor being PRP or not) are wrong. Right now, only P95/mprime can be used for PRPCF and PRPCFDC. If you use gpuowl, it will not signal an error, but it will PRP the wrong number. I assume Mihai is working on this, either to include the PRPCF option, or to give and error when worktodo line contains factors. 
[QUOTE=LaurV;570212]Yep. Bug for sure, [/QUOTE]
I used mprime and the residue B786DF1732AE7343 is the one which mprime reported in the results.json.txt. I filed a bug in the [url=https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=26448]Primenet section[/url]. 
[QUOTE=LaurV;570212]Yep. Bug for sure[/QUOTE]
No. P95 calculates 3^(Mp+1) == 3^(f+1) to prp test Mp/f. So the residue produced is always the same. By calculating 3^(Mp+1), you can just do repeated squaring (more efficient), which also allows GEC / CERT capability.

[QUOTE=kruoli;570221]It looks like BrentSuyama helped you there.[/QUOTE]
Yes, it did. I tried to understand why this large factor 195509617 of k for my factor of [url=https://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/70553939]M70553939[/url] has been found with e=12 BrentSuyama and a B2 of only 13222500. As far as I understand it after reading [url=https://www.rieselprime.de/ziki/BrentSuyama_extension]this explanation[/url], I think it must be because 195509617 happens to divide a larger polynomial. So I tried to find this larger polynomial with the Python code below, but the output is empty, so I must have done something wrong ... [CODE] #!/usr/bin/python n=70553939 factor_of_k=195509617 B2=13222500 e=12 primorial = 2310 for i in range(0,B2//primorial+1): for j in range(1,primorial,2): # test if 195509617 divides (2310*i + j)^12  1 (we only need to do it for uneven j) if pow(primorial*i+j, e, factor_of_k) == factor_of_k1: print(f"{factor_of_k} divides ({primorial}*{i}+{j})**{e}1") [/CODE] 
The poly is (2310*i)^12j^12, and only j that is relatively prime to 2310 need to be considered. Actually, now that I think about it, could be (4320*i)^12j^12
EDIT: If you've used the new 30.4 version, then j can be much bigger than primorial EDIT2: i=5413, j=19891, D=2310 works 
[QUOTE=axn;570911]The poly is (2310*i)^12j^12, and only j that is relatively prime to 2310 need to be considered. Actually, now that I think about it, could be (4320*i)^12j^12[/QUOTE]
Thanks, that was in fact my stupid mistake: Now it works: [CODE] factor_of_k=195509617 B2=13222500 e=12 for primorial in [30,210,2310]: for i in range(0,B2//primorial+1): # test 2310*k + 1, 2310*k + 3, 2310*k + 5, ... # (didn't bother to check only coprime j for j in range(0,primorial): if pow(primorial*i, e, factor_of_k) == pow(j, e, factor_of_k): print(f"{factor_of_k} divides ({primorial}*{i})**{e}{j}**{e}") [/CODE] [CODE] $ python brent.py 195509617 divides (30*0)**120**12 195509617 divides (210*0)**120**12 195509617 divides (2310*0)**120**12 195509617 divides (2310*5183)**12423**12 [/CODE] So B2 had to be at least 2310*5183 = 11972730 and mprime had chosen B2=13222500 :) (It was with an older version of mprime, please note that the factor was found a long time ago). Maybe I need to take a look into the source code if I want to 100% understand it. But I think it's fine for now. 
Hmmm... 423 is not relatively prime to 2310, so that is not a valid combo.
:confus: Are you sure it was D=2310, E=12? D=210 is another option, as is E=6. 
[QUOTE=axn;570915]Hmmm... 423 is not relatively prime to 2310, so that is not a valid combo.[/QUOTE]
You are right. I'm confused, too. I don't have the line from results.txt anymore, but [url=https://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/70553939]mersenne.ca[/url] definitely tells me that it was found with e=12.

FWIW, I didn't interpret it as being judgemental. It is just that, it was too funny that as soon as I explained my reasoning, I got an example. In the past 10 months or so running deep P1, I don't think I have seen this situation occur (a mix of stage1 & stage 2 factors being found together)

[QUOTE=petrw1;574040]74% of the work for 0.2% of the credit.
That's ok sometimes it's the other way around.[/QUOTE]I couldn't remember (and didn't bother to look up) if mersenne.org gives proper classbased credit or just takes the lazy approach, apparently it's the latter. For an individual assignment it's unfair, but on average as you say it all balances out. 
IIRC, I asked this in the past, as I got some minuscule credit, close to zero, for a factor and I couldn't figure out why, as it was not on one of the first classes, mfaktc still had to do some work to get the factor. I think George replied something along the lines that PrimeNet gives TF credit classbased, except that the classes are P95like, and not mfaktclike. P95 splits the classes differently, whatever that means, maybe he can clarify. On average, this doesn't matter. As Wayne said, sometimes that is the other way around.

[QUOTE=LaurV;574058]P95 splits the classes differently, whatever that means, maybe he can clarify.[/QUOTE]I believe Prime95 uses 420 classes whereas mfakt[i]x[/i] uses 4620 classes (except for the lessclasses version/setting when it also uses 420).

Well, it could be easily checked in which class the factors were, in both cases.

[QUOTE=LaurV;574062]Well, it could be easily checked in which class the factors were, in both cases.[/QUOTE]3412 / 4620
52 / 420 
So, you would get about 70% of the NF credit with mfaktc, unless you TFed the whole bit (and no "star" is sent), but you would only get about 12% of the NF credit if P95 indeed uses 420 classes. More or less, as the space between the classes is not even. Better calculus would take in consideration modularity of p to 420 and 4620 and display x/96 and x/960 respectively, instead of x/420 and x/4620. No calculation done, only arguing :razz: the excuse is that it's 1:20 AM here. Going to bed. :yawn:

[QUOTE=James Heinrich;574061]I believe Prime95 uses 420 classes whereas mfakt[i]x[/i] uses 4620 classes (except for the lessclasses version/setting when it also uses 420).[/QUOTE]
Prime95 (and Primenet's credit calculation) uses 16 mod 120 classes. 
My only suggestion would be: if I TF the entire bit level regardless of the factor size I should get full credit ... because if someone later wants to find more factors they don't need to redo this bit level. Do I correctly assume mfaktc/Prime95 does not retain classes complete on a partial TF for later continuation?

[QUOTE=petrw1;575031]Seems it doesn't[/QUOTE]Sorry, you're right. The change I was thinking of relates to detecting whether the result claims to be fullrange TF or not, and some related code that handles composite factors found by TF, but the actual PrimeNet code that calculates and applies credit is outside my zoneofcontrol, and does not currently have any mechanism for specifying whether a range was complete or not. The data is available to the manual results form, it just can't pass that information on to where the credit is calculated and applied. Such a change would need to be applied at the George level.
