[quote=Batalov;208989]The "3 k's left" message was already an update. The originals was above it:
Some PHP or perlcgi based automation could do wonders to your (already wonderful) webpages. Don't you see that you turn yourself into a humanpowerdriven CGI? And from that CGIlike behaviour stems your frustration when people are not specific enough. I can understand that. Sorry, but the best way to restrict the vocabulary and remove ambiguities is a set of simple forms: [code]User [......] Email [as a weak authentication + for the followups] Reserve {RieselSierp} base [...] from n= [1default] to n=[25000value].

Don't get frustrated. Simplify it. I was going to suggest a very good base, but now I am not sure. I honor your moratorium. Anything but a new base! :) Peace! Serge[/quote] BTW, you still haven't clearly told me if R1011 is STILL reserved. Is it or not? Feel free to suggest a very good base. Assuming it's new, I'd only ask that you/we wait a week to work on it because I now have a lot of time that I need to spend on the NPLB project. It has gone dormant. I'm in over my head here right now. I fully expected this project to stop at base 100 with some bases that are powersof2 up to 256. Since the Riesel and Sierp k listings go up to 1024, I subsequently expected that we would slowly work our way higher. The new bases script was intended for me to be able to easily doublecheck existing bases and allow people to fill in the holes on lower bases and very slowly work our way higher. Instead it has been used to search them everywhere; 10's of them at a time. The fact that the most complex small conjectures are now being searched en mass is what is causing the problem. I was a legacy programmer for years, completely burned out, and frankly don't want to learn a lot about programming/web design/etc. I know just enough about updating the pages to keep them up to date. I did not know HTML at all prior to 3 years ago. I have no idea what CGI is. I Googled it and got several different things that it could be: CGI programming (i.e. a language), computergenerated imagery, common gateway interface, etc. If there is anyone out there that can completely design and interface what you are talking about with the pages and has the time to do that, I'll step aside. One thing that I don't want to get into: A situation like the former PrimeSearch project where they just had an automated reservation system with little communication and expiration of dormant reservations and little checking of ranges to make sure they were correct. That did not work well at all. Automated reservations are great but there has to be communication about statuses, etc. Gary 
R841
I agree with you on many of these points. No hard feelings?
1. R1011 is still reserved to 25K. 2. Reserving one last interesting (and surely challenging) base R841 to 10K:  conjectured [I]k[/I] is 24090, ...[I]but[/I]  because [I]b[/I]1 = 2^3*3*5*7, many (6539) trivial eliminations, and that's not counting odds,  5364 primes  a [I]very[/I] prime base,  after the script, at n=1K, there were 138 k's left, of which 10 are squares and eliminated,  base is 29^2, too (though R29 doesn't help here, because it was a very short conjecture), but testing is faster than neighbors,  at n~=4300, another 68 k's are eliminated, with only 60 k's remaining (out of 24090!). I'll email you the report (it's too big for the forum's margins to contain), but I'll give you (and me) a few days to rest, ok? Have a good weekend! Serge 
Of course no problem. That is an interesting base.
BTW, the pages are fully up to date now on my end. One minor problem: We just had a server move and there is some port forwarding stuff that needs to be taken care of that I don't deal with. So you'll need to look later today for the updated pages. The pages that can be viewed right now are about a day old. I have fully updated the 1k thread as well as the untested Riesel and Sierp bases threads. You might check some of your reservations in the 1k thread.

106 k have trivial factors. 351 k have primes with 140*821^244421 as the largest found (so far). 21 k have no primes. The hiddenpowers script gave this message: 144*821^n=0 mod 2 factors due to 12^2 Clearly that removes k=144 when n is even, but uncertain about when n is odd. This base is searched to n=25000 and is released.

Based upon the hiddenpowers.pl perl script, I see 4*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 2^2 9*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 3^2 49*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 7^2 64*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 8^2 64*74^n1 n=0 mod 3 factors due to 4^3 144*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 12^2 169*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 13^2 289*74^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 17^2 What about n=1 mod 2? There is no albegraic factorization for it. These k are not always composite. For example, I see these with Riesel base 928: 1521*928^n1 n=0 mod 2 factors due to 39^2 1728*928^n1 n=0 mod 3 factors due to 12^3 1521*928^112731 and 1728*928^127961 are prime. These cases are no different than yours, so I don't see how you can eliminate all of those k. 
[quote]
These k are not always composite. [/quote] They are if n==(1 mod 2) always has a factor of 5, which they do for R744. :) [quote] These cases are no different than yours, [/quote] They are different. See the "generalizing algebriac factors for Riesel bases" thread. n==(1 mod 2) always has a factor of 5 if the following 2 conditions are BOTH met: 1. The base is b==(4 mod 5). 2. k=m^2 and m==(2 or 3 mod 5), i.e. k=2^2, 3^2, 7^2, 8^2, etc. R928 is b==(3 mod 5) so does not have such factorization. There are other conditions where n==(1 mod 2) has a factor of 13, 41, 53, etc. that allow k's to be eliminated but a factor of 5 is by far the most common. Sorry, R928 is just plain a tough base. There are no k's that I'm personally aware of that can be eliminated due to partial algebraic factorization unless something new comes out that we haven't observed yet. The script written by Serge (or Tim; I'm not sure), while helpful and useful, can be misleading. It will tell you the partial (or full) algebraic factorization of a kvalue. It will not necessarily tell you whether the k can be eliminated or not. To be eliminated, the "other side", i.e. odd n in this case, has to always have a covering set or single factor; most of the time the latter. The main value of the script is to allow you to manually remove nvalues from a sieve; not to tell you whether a k can be eliminated completely from testing. Sometimes it will have you remove all remaining nvalues from the sieve (as would happen in the above situation for base 744 and would allow you to remove the k from testing) but much more frequently, it will not (as would be the case for base 928). BTW, one last thing: Although logically it makes no difference, you used base 74 but it was Ian's base 744 testing that you were referring to. That is why I refer to base 744 here. It makes no logical difference because if base 74 had a higher conjecture than k=4, the same situation would apply since it is also b==(4 mod 5). Gary

Wouldn't you know it. Right when you think you have it all figured out, something new comes along. We have our first factor of 101 that combines with partial algebraic factors to make a full covering set for k=100.

We have the "old" standby for a factor of 5 on odd n and the "new" kind with a factor of 5 on even n. I showed those. But we now have the "old" kind but with a brand new factor of 101 on odd n. I missed that one, which knocks out k=100 in this case. This is pretty amazing. There are now only 2 k's remaining after having a total of 9 k's knocked out by the 3 different kinds of algebraic factors. Gary

[quote=rogue;210439]Yes Gary, I know that I have submitted three results today and have one reservation. Fortunately none of these bases have any algebraic factorizations for you to worry about. I won't be posting any results tomorrow.[/quote]
lol No prob. Weekends are my busy time. It's slow on Monday's. Almost everything will be updated here in a little while. A couple of remaining stragglers will be taken care of late afternoon. Her's a clarification that I may not have been clear on before: I don't care how many statuses you report on existing reservations as long as I've had time to show the bases as reserved on the pages. Those are completely separate from starting new bases. I only ask that no more than 2 new bases be reserved per day. It's their initial listing on the pages that takes a while. I could be shooting myself in the foot here. I suppose people could take that as far as they want and reserve 2 new bases per day for 10 days straight and never report a status on them. Then on day 11, report the status of the 20 total bases. Of course I wouldn't prefer that but the fact does remain that it's a lot faster if I already have a base listed and I just have to plug some primes and k's remaining into it and possibly change/remove a reservation. Here, since you already had base 566 reserved, it looks like you had 2 new bases and a status on an existing base. That fits. Based on this, if you have some bases right now that you know you are going to work on that have 1 or 2 or so k's remaining at some nominal limit and you have no other proven new bases for the day that you are going to post, go ahead and reserve them. Once you have them reserved and I have them listed, you can report statuses on quite a few of them at once later on. You might find that less time consuming in the long run. I hope this clarifies for everyone. My apologies if I appeared to restrict things a lot more than I intended.

One way that it does help is to make it a little easier when referring back to them for historical reference. More than anything, I just wanted you to make sure you checked any automated selection criteria or sorting routine. It sounds like nothing was amiss there. Gary

2*650^21 3*650^11 5*650^21 6*650^61 7*650^11 k = 4 remains. AFAICT, there is a partial algebraic factorization, but it doesn't cover all n. 2*692^81 3*692^61 4*692^11 5*692^21 7*692^10411 k = 6 remains. Both have been tested to n=25000. I am releasing these bases. 
[quote=gd_barnes;210934]Max, it would be a lot cleaner to get all of the results in one batch instead of separated by primed and unprimed k's. I try to keep everything somewhat consistent in my file storage. Also, on the primes. I just need only those...the primes. No "is prime" or "time: 0.0" on each line. Doing those two things would make it consistent with a pure PFGW run.[/quote]
Oh, okay. The reason why I separate by primed and unprimed k's is because that way I can match up just the unprimed k's with the original sieve file, while leaving the primed one's since they're a lot harder to do that with (due to them being stopped midway). I do suppose, however, that I could recombine and resort the results [i]after[/i] checking just the unprimed onesthat could work, though it would add another step to my alreadycomplex process for doing conjecture results. Regarding the various junk in the primes file: ah, that's because I copy those lines directly over from the LLRformatted results file. I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to fix that. :smile: 
Willem,
If you have primes on more than ~20 k's to report, can you put them in the "code" and "/code" box or post a file of them so that the posts aren't quite so long? Easiest for so many primes is to attach the pl_primes file so that I know there are no typos. Thanks.

Once again, it took large primes to prove these: 6*587^24119+1 4*608^20706+1

All you'll really need is a conversion process. I feel we're getting just a little too complicated for our own good with it. Reference the 4 results that you got from Tim that weren't in the original sieve because he removed them afterthefact after realizing they had algebraic factors. Just a simple conversion, one file (or perhaps 2 if a large nrange), none of the matchup and none of the primed/noprimed k's separation complication, is all that will really be needed. I've gotten various PRPnet results from Mark and some others in various different formats before you started the matchup and conversion. Although I prefer them in the classical PFGW format, I don't mind too much if they're in different formats. I still have many old results in LLR and Phrot format and some in PRPnet format. I never asked for everyone's original sieve file for matching results, regardless of how they searched their ranges. That would have taken forever. It's difficult enough just getting results. This project isn't like NPLB, which is much more exacting. My 2 cents anyway. Gary

Since most of us test to n=25000 instead of a lower value (such as 10000 or 20000), this prevents these conjectures from showing up in the "Conjectures with one k" thread. It makes one wonder how many of those "single k remaining" conjectures will be proven by finding a prime for n<50000 or n<100000.

Yes, I'm sure quite a few will fall by n=100K. Keep in mind, though, that the k's/bases remaining at n=25K are generally lower weight, sometimes much lower weight, than the ones remaining at n=5K. The percentage of k's/bases found prime for n=25K100K will be quite a bit less than n=5K25K. n=25K100K would also probably take 5075 times longer to search than n=5K25K. :smile:

Gary[/quote] Well, it's not so much a matter of confidence in the client/server application (LLRnet, PRPnet, etc.) as in making sure that there was no human error along the way. In almost all instances where I've found results missing from a range, it was due to a human slipup, not a computer error, and sometimes this has pointed out significant problems in the process used by the person producing the results (Beyond's unstable machine that I caught in results processing comes to mind). What will help a lot is when I finally get around to piecing together all my processing applications into one big program. The actual process is quite straightforward and rarely requires much nonautomated interaction; the main hurdle to full automation is simply the matter of not having the time to code it up. :smile: Also, at some point we'll hopefully have an NPLBlike stats DB set up for CRUS, which we can just dump all results into indiscriminately; the DB can handle sorting and categorizing the results without a problem, which would make it relatively easy to write code to check with the DB that certain conditions have been met (all tests below a prime on a given k have been tested, all results are present in a completed range, etc.) and then output the results in whatever format we wantLLR, PFGW, LLRnet, you name it. In the meantime, though, I don't mind the extra work involved in making sure that everything's there. I agree that such precision is not needed for manual results, but for servers, there's many more variables involved and many more things that can go wrongthat's just the nature of their comparatively more complex setup. So therefore I'd rather spend an extra 5 minutes in processing than have, say, a whole range with conflicting duplicate results (a la Beyond's situation that I referenced earlier), or other such undesirable situations. :smile: So, to sum up: in the future I'll be sure to combine nonprimed and primed k's back into one results file at the end of processing to keep that consistent on your end. Never mind how much work it takes on my end to do that; just think of it as extra incentive for me to automate it further. :wink: 
'My' R1019 has a CK=4 and the only remaining k=2 is at n=105600 so far (taking about 2200s for one test), so i thought i missed something such a prime at low nvalue or a algebraic value.
Primes are (still) not predictable like: 'Oh, a low kvalue... I will find a prime for n<25k!' So for this only one small k and CK it's a tremendous work to do and from time to time, mostly newbies think it's easy to prove such thing. I'm continuing this and it may take some months to reach 200k (my goal for now).

Would it be worth someone's time to compute the weight for each k in the single k conjecture thread? that would give users an idea as to how easy/difficult it might be to prove the conjecture.

I know you like working with automating things so have fun with it. Yeah, human error is probably the biggest thing to be checking for when processing results coming from a personal server. They can be so complex to a person using them the first time that it's easy to miss something when setting up or loading them. Thanks for the coding that you do. :smile:

Yes, that would be VERY useful! Short of just sieving them to some nominal depth like P=100M, which would be a hassle, I'm not sure how it would be done. I'll put a posting there requesting such info. for people who know what program to run.
