 Forum: Dobri 2021-07-17, 20:41 Replies: 49 Views: 3,012 Posted By Dobri Strategies for Manual Testing Closing the thread at https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=26997 was premature because the OP was not given a chance to respond, especially at a stage when a post was submitted in their...

Simply there is no rush to spill the beans in a single post. For instance, attached are the base-2 distributions. In the second image, the base-10 distributions...

The idea is not to predict the next Mp but rather select suitable options for manual testing. Assuming that there are several Mp in the 9-digit range, one would expect that at least one is among the...

Let's mention also another empirical observation which might be obvious but related to this thread nonetheless. When comparing the digit sum histograms of the Mersenne-prime (Mp) and...

I myself am undecided to what extent incomplete patterns could produce tangible results in number theory. The digit sum histogram is just one partial pattern characteristic among many alternative...

Oscillations around the linear fit are common but to have a change in slope for a dozen consecutive Mersenne primes from M40 till M51 and assume that it is happening just by chance would be in blind...

This is an early attempt to eventually improve the competitiveness of Mersenneries with modest resources. I am still figuring out to what extent the combination of digit sum histograms obtained for...

The effort to fit the pre-GIMPS Mersenne primes with a line using e^(-gamma) from the Mertens' third theorem (which is valid for ALL primes) is based on the assumption that the Mersenne primes have...

The LPW heuristic is just another empirical observation based on the limited sample size. There is an alternative interpretation for the graph of log2(log2(Mn)) versus n. Perhaps another line with...

Happy hunting, retina. :) One could go wild and select digit sum 35 for manual testing, but preferably not if the test on...

When one attempts to estimate what would be the next Mersenne prime on the basis of the current small sample size of known Mersenne primes,...
 Forum: Dobri 2021-07-13, 17:11 Replies: 49 Views: 3,012 Posted By Dobri Digit sum of a Mersenne-prime exponent The base-10 digit sums of the Mersenne exponents for the 51 known Mersenne primes are as follows: 2, 3, 5, 7, 4, 8, 10, 4, 7, 17, 8, 10, 8, 13, 19, 7, 13, 13, 14, 13, 32, 23, 8, 29, 11, 16, 28,...
