For the Sierp odd-n conjecture, here's an update of both lists with the primes that I found and the Sierp base 4 primes with even k's removed from my list. There was only 1 Sierp base 4 prime not on my list. I ended up testing up to n=118K on all k's before stopping.

If no one objects, I'd like to reserve 16734*4^n-1. That's base=4, k=16734, Riesel numbers(-1). I believe the n-values that need to be tested start at n=100K.
If there's a sieved file, I'd love to know about it. Also, if people would rather I sieve than LLR, I can do that to. I just ask that the digit length of the lowest untested value in the sieve file be no more than twice the digit length of any un-LLred value in a lower base. In that instance, I'd probably want to sieve a lower base. |

+1 odd-n conjecture web page update document1 Attachment(s)
Karsten,
Attached is a notepad document that is an update of the web page that you sent me via PM that has many primes filled in and some corrections for the +1 odd-n conjecture. 6 of the k's had primes at n=1; 3 of which already had a higher prime and 3 of which had no prime found. This balances with the 13 k's remaining at n=118K shown earlier in this thread. Gary |

Jean or Karsten, do you have a sieve file for Riesel base 4 k=16734? Jasong, I'm not sure I quite follow you here about 2X length of LLR'd value of lower base. I can only speculate that you might like to save sieving/LLRing time if Riesel k=16734/2=8367 base 2 has known testing above n=200K (n=100K base 4) to avoid double-testing. When setting up the pages, I checked all k's on bases that are powers of 2 for primes in the prime archives at the top-5000 site and at [URL="http://www.rieselprime.org"]www.rieselprime.org[/URL] (converted from base 2) before putting anything up for testing. As shown on the latter site, k=8367 has only been tested to n=10K base 2 (n=5K base 4) and has no primes that are odd-n so you're OK there. I think this is a very good idea to reserve this base 4 vs. base 16. It is open for both bases. It would be a waste of time for someone to sieve/test k=16734 base 16 and then turn around and do it for base 4. Perhaps that's part of what you're referring to. In this case, I'll show you as reserving k=16734 on both base 4 and base 16. Otherwise someone could duplicate you base 16. One caviot...If you find an even-n prime base 4 (n==0mod4 base 2), that will also eliminate the k on base 16 and you could stop testing. But if you find an odd-n prime base 4 (n==2mod4 base 2), I would suggest deleting all odd-n's in your sieve file and continue from there looking for an even-n base 16 prime. Of course it's your choice to continue on for base 16 but it's a way to kill two birds with one stone. :smile: You could even end up with two different top-5000 primes; one for each base! :grin: Gary |

I am also proposing that this thread be moved to the "Conjectures 'R Us" project thread.
As discussed with Jean, we will be adding the Riesel and Seirp base 2 even-n and odd-n conjectures as a subproject to our project. As with the other threads, I'll wait a couple of days before requesting that this be moved. Gary |

Just for fun and curiosity...To illustraste the dissymetry between +1, base 2 odd / even exponents, I tested k = 18534/2 = 9267 with even exponents.
In less than 48H, I found that : 9267*2^n+1 is prime for n = 100, 1556, 1966, 2660, 4342, 4468, 5372, 39538, 65386, 142426 although for odd exponents, I am presently reaching n = 1983943 with no prime! I will continue even n during some days, just for fun... Jean |

Jean,
Very good! Nice work. I resumed testing the Sierp odd-n conjecture on 2 cores yesterday starting from n=118K. I'm now up to n=175K. I found primes on 4 more k's, all of which came in one small grouping from n=156K-170K, as follows: 50433*2^156597+1 91437*2^161615+1 61137*2^162967+1 39297*2^169495+1 This leaves 9 k's remaining! :smile: Testing will pause at n=200K while I sieve a new file for the remaining k's. I will request that this thread be moved over to the conjectures project shortly. It will probably be Monday/Tuesday before I can get the project/my site updated to include the info. for this. For the time being, Karsten is keeping good track of things. Gary |
