Isn't that annoying that so many of these small conjectures have a single k remaining at n=25000?[/quote] You might also remember me saying that if its 34 to complete a grouping of something, then that is fine. :smile: As for 1 k remaining, although annoying, it's definitely expected especially for bases > ~250. I'd be surprised otherwise. I don't know what others do but in this case, I searched 10 bases at once by nvalue for n=5K25K. I was fairly lucky to find a final prime on 5 of them since they were all b>300. 5 ended up with 1 k remaining. It is a pain to have to sieve them all separately but searching them all at once sure saves a lot of human time. It involves a bit of manual manipulation to get it into the proper PFGW formatted sieve file after sieving all of the bases. Srfile can't bring together multiple bases into one PFGWformatted sieve file. I personally like searching them all at once upwards by nvalue since that finds a prime the most quickly for most of them. One hint if you search several bases at once, be very careful with the stoponprime option. Since many of the k=8 conjectures had k=4 remaining, you certainly wouldn't want to stoponprime for k=4. But in this case, since they all had only 1 k remaining, I was able to have it stop when a prime was found for the BASE. Note that that wouldn't work if you had more than one k in some of the bases since you'd miss searching the remaining n's for the k('s) without a prime, but it does work well for a bunch of 1 k remaining bases. PFGW isn't sophisticated enough to be able to differentiate k=4 on one base from k=4 on a different base within the same search. Mark, can PRPnet handle searching multiple bases at once? If so, can it stop on prime for a specific k / base combo instead of just stopping when a specific k OR a specific base finds a prime? That would be very cool. Gary

There is no way to stop searching if a prime is found for a base (regardless of k and c). Is this is need? If so, I would like to understand it further. If I didn't know any better, I suspect that you would want this for a GFN type search. PRPNet supports such a search, but does not stop if a prime is found for one of the bases.

No, afaik, stopping when a prime is found for a base would not be needed in PRPnet for our needs. It just came in handy for me on a pure PFGW search on many bases with 1k remaining. It would be handy if PFGW itself could stop on a k/base combo. On the other topic, please don't "finish up" a group of something several days in a row. (lol, it wouldn't be finishing up a group of something then) If you really are finishing up a group of something, then that's fine. Weekends are very busy in my personal/business life but I have plenty of time for the projects on Monday and Tuesday; the opposite of most people. As an example, I skipped late Fri, all Sat, and most of Sun. updating the pages. I then updated them very late Sun./early Mon. There were already 1012 new bases plus 3 more that I did. I had to follow up on 2 of them and there was one that was involved with 2 different kinds of algebraic factors. Now there's the added task of running srsieve whenever there is 1 k remaining. If you guys wanna help me out a little, whenever you post a status on a new base with 1 k remaining, please run srsieve to P=511 for n=100001 to 110000 and let me know how many candidates are remaining. That will be the weight shown in the 1k thread. Gary

[quote=mdettweiler;211791]Hmm...interesting how just k=4 remains on quite a few of these k=8 conjectures. Is there something special about k=4 that makes it extra stubborn?[/quote]
It's 4 times a 4th power, which elimates all n's divisible by 4 on all bases and hence makes them somewhat lower weight. But other than that, no, none that I can tell. Using that logic, k's that are perfect squares on the Riesel side should be much worse since their n's cannot be divisible by 2. But my perception is that Sierp k=4 is worse than Riesel perfect squares and I don't have an explanation of why. One thing that I did recently is see how many bases <= 1024 have k=4 remaining at n=5K. There were 43 of them. Compare that to the following # of bases remaining at n=5K: Riesel k=2 25 Sierp k=2 35 Riesel k=4 30 Sierp k=4 43 Riesel k=4 was helped somewhat by having some bases k=4 eliminated due to partial algebraic factors making a full covering set but not that much difference. The Sierp side is definitely tougher for k=2 and k=4, especially on smallconjectured bases. Explantion of the elimination of n==(0 mod 4) for Sierp k=4: 4b^4 + 1 = (2b^2+2b+1) * (2b^22b+1) In all cases that I looked at for b<=1024 and k=4, this does not make a full covering set so the searches must continue. Where it does make a full covering set is on bases 55 and 81 for k=2500, which is k=4*5^4. Hence you'll see on the pages that those k's are eliminated. Gary

Typically I do doublecheck, but I only check the last page in the forum, thinking that previous pages would have posts that you have already handled. In this case I bet that I didn't go back to previous pages to verify that nobody else had worked on them. I'll have to remember that next time.

it's complex i first inputed undersieved files to the server and several times at unknown depths(of testing) used the remove candidates with factors from sieve file feature of prpnet i can provide the factor files i used to remove the factors i don't think i have the first set of undersieved files the reason that i started with undersieved files was that i expected to find some primes(and didn't find as many as i thought(wrongly)) which would speed up sieving lots AFAIK i have provided the most sieved files that i have with all factors removed sorry to cause confusion any idea on how to do this in future?

Lennart did the same thing for his S25 ranges and therefore I've sent those on to Gary sorted but not checked against the original sieve file. Normally we'd prefer that factors be removed at definite nrange cutoffs so that we can match things up (to prevent server error and/or human error from causing anything to have been accidentally missed along the way) but in this case it's OK to let them slide since you guys are both pretty familiar with how this stuff works and the chance of error is rather small. As for how to do it in the future, I can't speak for Gary, but I personally would prefer removing factors at definite cutoffs so that we can make absolutely sure that nothing is missing. Having to forego checking once in a while is OK, but definitely not ideal. 
BTW, if anyone else ends up removing factors throughout like that in the future, please give me a headsup to that effect when you post your resultsit will save me a lot of time in processing to know that I don't have to even try to match up what will surely be a futile endeavor. :smile:

I cant see why it wouldn't be possible as long as you have the most sieved sieve file. What you need to do is make sure all the candidates in the sieve file have results not the other way around. I suppose your problem really is that your current script won't do that.

Yes, you're right. I suppose I could write up a script to remove all results from a results file that aren't present in a sieve file, then check what's left with the latest sieve file. However, it does seem like a clumsy workaround to the problem, and it still doesn't solve the problem of when someone sieves throughout and removes nranges from the lower end of the sieve file as they're sieved to optimal or tested (as I believe may have happened with Lennart's S25 range, since the 3.6T sieve file he sent me was only for 52K100K, while for the lower ranges he just had a 1.2T file). I'll have to do some thinking about how to best deal with this. One possibility I've thought of is to set up a MySQL database in which to put all the results, then have scripts pull them out and verify them as needed. Even though we don't have a whole stats system set up for CRUS at this time, this would still be adequate for processing purposes. The main tricky thing is that I'd have to write a lot of scripts from scratch (since all my scripts now deal with flat text files)but I think it might be worth it in the long run due to the much greater flexibility of a database. Once it's all set up and the scripts are written, a DB would simplify processing a great deal. In the meantime, though, I'll go ahead and process your results without checking them. Any solution I come up with to this problem will probably not be available within the next few days. :smile:

I have to return a computer (my old one at work), one in which I was using for R1025. I completed it up to n=45916 with no primes found. Here are the residues.

It's dangerous and cannot be subsequently verified if necessary in the future unless you keep the intial sieve file, all factors, and all results, which would be a headache worth of files to keep and match up in the future. If you're sieving n=1K to 100K, sieve the entire thing to an optimum depth for n=1K10K, break that off and test, remove k's from the remainder, sieve n=10K100K to an optimum depth for n=10K25K, break that off and test, remove k's from the remainder, and do the same for n=25K50K and then n=50K100K. (Even if using PRPnet, which will "remember" which k's have primes and so won't test them, you still need to remove them because otherwise, much additional sieving time is used.) Don't just guess at an undersieve and hope for some primes. If you don't want to spend so much time sieving such a large nrange as n=1K100K for all k's to an optimum depth for n=1K10K at first, then sieve only n=1K25K to an optimum depth for n=1K10K, break that off and test and then remove k's, sieve, and test n=10K25K. THEN do a brand new sieve for remaining k's for n=25K100K and do the final 2 steps above for n=25K50K and 50K100K. In other words, don't remove factors throughout. Pick specific breakoff points. Max, you will need to account for specific breakoff points in sieving. It's a musthave because if people aren't doing it when the high nvalue to low nvalue ratio is > ~3 to 1 (for anything n>~10K), they are wasting quite a bit of CPU resources. The key that I'm recommending to David here is that the breakoffs be minimized but specific; not at just random points throughout the process. The method in the 2nd para. above is almost exactly what I do with a small exception: I script everything to n=2500, sieve n=2.5K25K, break off n=2.5K10K, etc. and continue as shown above. I usually stop at n=25K but if I was going to n=100K, the 2nd para. above is how I would do it; that is subsequently start a brand new sieve for n=25K100K. IMHO, there are just too many k's that are eliminated at the very low nranges to justify sieving all of them for n=1K100K at once. Gary

I have no more proven Riesel conjectures to post. 
Sierp Bases
The following Sierp Bases were submitted to me by Mark (Rogue) as proven. He sent me the found primes for all. They will be removed from the untested thread.

Mark,
As requested in the news thread, when people submit/Email a load of bases with CK<=200, we are asking that they also post which bases they are in these threads, one per line just as Ian has done above so that he doesn't have to do that. If the base isn't proven, then showing search limit and # of k's remaining is also needed for the applicable bases in the post. No more actual detail (primes/which k's are remaining) is needed in the posting. We're trying our best to spread the work out among everyone here. :) Thanks, Gary
