(*https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=12980*)

Conjectures with one k remainingI thought it would be interesting to list the conjectures with 1 k remaining to see if anyone would be willing to take the k in an effort to solve the conjectures. Obviously a bunch are reserved, but quite a few look ripe for the picking at 25K. I would take some myself, but I need to finish some of the work I currently have before I take on more. Clearly there are some huge primes out there waiting for someone to get lucky.

Sierpinski Conjectures: (etc.) Gary, I wonder if it would be useful to have webpages listing "tested conjectures by fewest k remaining", "tested conjectures by lowest n", and "untested conjectures by fewest k". I can hear you screaming now. :-)[/quote] Great idea, Mark, about starting this thread. Yeah, I'd be screaming about updating the pages any more than I have to right now but I have about as good of an idea: Just have threads like this and have Max or me keep the 1st post in them updated. I'm just the idea and detail guy :smile: but admittedly am not a particularly good coordinator of things. So if anyone wants to take the lead in coordinating huge project-wide sieving efforts for bases like this, be my guest. I haven't given the project a whole lot of direction and that's largely because it is so huge and all-encompassing. I'll take this one step further: Neither I nor CRUS own all of this stuff. It's so huge so as to be almost unmanageable at times. I'd be perfectly happy if someone wanted to take a base or two (or several) and make a separate project out of it. I'll be glad to offer tips on getting a project or sub-forum started. KEP even has mentioned a couple of times taking some of the project to BOINC. Although I'm not a BOINC fan, that'd be fine with me on a few of the bases with huge #'s of k's or bases where the search depth is already so high that few of our contributors are interested in them. Sierp base 4 at n=1M is a good example there. Riesel base 6 will likely get to that point also as we near n=1M. It's stalled at n=~520K right now. Edit: I made a few corrections and added several more bases to the 1st post here. Mark, 2 of them are reserved by you! :-) Gary |

I thought that I released those bases. Maybe I wasn't clear in the reservations thread. I had taken those bases to 25K and released them. I might get back to them, but not for a month or more. Base 928 will take a while to get to 25K and I can't do that until Riesel base 58 is to 50K, which should complete in about three weeks. |

I completed it to 25K. Gary must have missed it. |

Mark,
I see what happened now. In [URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=201400&postcount=870"]this post[/URL], you stated that "these are all searched to n=25K". I took that to mean that you had tested all of the bases [I]below[/I] that statement (i.e. the ones with primes) to n=25K. I did not take it to mean that you had tested all of the [I]above[/I] bases (in the blue box) to n=25K. In the context stated, I can see now that my interpretation was incorrect. I can see why I did too. That's a lot of bases without any primes for n=10K-25K! I'll update the pages for that confusion in just a little while. One question: Like I said, that's a lot of bases with no primes for n=10K-25K and at least one that should have been for n=2.5K-25K. Are you absolutely positive that all listed bases in that post were tested to n=25K? The best example of one that I'm concerned about: Sierp base 811. Did you test this for n=2.5K-25K? It's testing limit was only n=2.5K when you reserved it and it's very unusual that no primes were found for 5 k's over such a low and wide n-range. Sierp base 961 is another example. Bases where b==(1 mod 30) are generally high-weight bases yet there were no primes for n=10K-25K for 9 k's on S961, which makes no primes for 14 k's for n=10K-25K combined on high-weight bases. I'm not saying these are wrong; just very unusual. Can you do a close check of your primes file and make sure all were listed? Can you please provide results files for any or all of these and for any future testing for n>2500? Personally I get quite paranoid just taking people's word for it that they've searched a base to a certain depth without supporting results, especially at the very high n-ranges. With this few primes on this many bases, with no results files, I'm inclined to start a double-check effort for them. Here is what is left that I now show as reserved by you: Riesel and Sierp bases 322, 328, 422, 516, 520, 803, and 928. Can you let me know if that is correct? Thanks, Gary |

Those are the k I have reserved.
I will go back and see if I forgot to report some primes on those other bases. |

Just to add some real numbers to Gary's speculation/worrying:

[quote=KEP;201751]k=27 for sierp base 252 is tested to n=100K :smile:
Regards KEP[/quote] Thanks Kenneth. It was correct on the pages and incorrect in the 1st post. I've now corrected it. I've now reviewed every base on the pages and have confirmed that the 1st post here is synced up with them. One note: I just recently reserved Sierp bases 122 and 129 and found that they had one k remaining at n=2500. I think I'll make it a point to only list bases in the 1st post here that have already been searched to n=25K. If I reach n=25K on those bases without a prime, I'll add them to the 1st post. |

Actually there should be even more expected primes with a less chance of no prime. That's because the percentage reduction is not linear. Although it can vary quite a bit based on the ratio between the high and low n, instead of taking the average n-value, it's likely better here to take an n-value around 35-40% of the n-range. Regardless, even without that adjustment, wow! 10.418%*12.942% = 1.35%. So there's a collective only 1.35% chance that bases 811 and 961 don't have a prime. Interesting. |
