This looks like any old factor... until you take a look at the effort required for this one. Normal P-1 is at 1,069.7 GHz-days and the min. bounds are B1=597,137 and B2=22,193,557,699 Bless version 30.8 |

[C]M10713539 has a factor: 9646618965808297396650789217449140593554849484807561 (P-1, B1=3000000, B2=21676825170) 7259945416488565152965177 × 1328745384765454647667709393[/C] :mike: |

It was suggested that ECM often makes more sense on those smaller Mersenne than P-1, and yes, there are a lot of low-hanging fruits with t35 done only partially. 1500 B1=1M curves on a 10 core take about 1.5 days and you can be fairly certain you won't miss any factor < 35 digits with that.

Yeah, my first double factor in one P-1 attempt. And it includes the largest factor, I found so far (#172 in the Top P-1 factor list). |

That factor could have quite likely been found with B1=1M already. |

Simon Josefsson has found a factor (7th biggest!)

Maybe this means I should buy some lottery tickets???You have to love statistics... :smile:

Switching to parameter=1 didn't help. Does anyone know what I did wrong? |
