Wow, that's a lot of missed factors!

Thanks for the corrections, and sorry to suggest Zhang was mistaken.

I suspect you misunderstand how P-1 bounds work. Just because you find one doesn't mean the previous P-1 run missed it the way that TF report says "missed factor". Can you give us an example of an...

It does? Where? When I teach it to children, I don't do any division.
Please explain.

With yield under 1.5 and that wide a Q-range, you're likely to get an unpleasant duplicate ratio. A job this size really calls for 32-bit large primes, and I imagine 3LP on one side too. I bet yield...

Correct, msieve has no filtering equivalent to required_excess. We use target_density as a proxy.

10.46 looks hairy; the rest are reachable with big P-1 alone (or slightly-less-big P-1 and a bit or two of TF- part of the fun is optimizing the combo, right?).

I like this idea best! I'm not sure 20 factors needs 10 TF levels- P-1 with 9% add'l probability does the same, and once that's done there would still be a 1/100 or 1/120 shot for each TF level. For...

165 digits uses I=14, while 170 is using A=28. With a larger siever, we expect to need a shorter Q-range.
