And find the nearest prime exponent to r. Or r = c x 10n x bm where b is a transcendental number and m is also a small positive integer. Factoring or primality testing on such exponents may be useful by falling in regions of the number line that would not be selected otherwise in a simple QA selection method. Some early examples of such runs revealed limitations on CUDAPm1 exponent that were later found to be partly gpu-model dependent. 141421333 (PRP C & cert) < 141421356 ~ 108 sqrt (2) < 141421387 (factored) 147576139 (factored) < 147576140 ~108 2^(1/egamma) < 147576181 (factored) 157079621 (PRP C & cert) < 157079632.7 ~ 108 pi/2 < 157079633 (factored) 161803393 (factored) < 161803399 ~108 golden ratio < 161803403 (PRP C & cert) (all listed above <50Mdigits are completed) 173205079 (PRP C & cert) < 173205081 ~ 108 sqrt (3) < 173205089 (factored) 223606793 (PRP in progress) < 223606798 ~ 108 sqrt (5) < 223606807 (PRP in progress) 271828171 (PRP in progress) < 271828183 ~108 e < 271828199 (PRP C & cert) 292005097 (factored) < 292005098 ~ 108 "Buenos Aires constant" < 292005113 (PRP in progress) 314159257 (LL assignment stagnant; PRP in progress) < 314159265 ~108 pi < 314159311 (factored) 316227731 (factored) < 316227766 ~ 108 sqrt(10) < 316227767 (factored) (As of 2021-04-16, all listed above that are >50Mdigits & <100Mdigits are factored, or completed in TF and P-1 to recommended bit levels and bounds and primality tests are in progress) 543656363 (factored) < 543656366 ~2 x 108 e < 543656371 (TF, P-1 done, PRP in progress) 628318517 (TF & P-1 done) < 628318531 ~2 x 108 pi < 628318583 (TF & P-1 done) (As of 2021-04-16, all listed above that are >100Mdigits & <200Mdigits are factored, or completed in TF and P-1 to recommended bit levels and bounds) (As of 2021-02-27, all listed below >200Mdigits are factored, or TF completed to recommended bit levels and P-1 done to at least recommended bounds) 785398129 (factored) < 785398163 ~ 109 pi/4 < 785398169 (factored) 853973387 (factored) < 853973422 ~ 108 e pi < 853973437 (TF, P-1 done) 942477787 (factored) < 942477796 ~3 x 108 pi < 942477799 (TF done, P-1 done) 986960431 (factored) < 986960440 ~108 pi2 < 986960461 (TF & P-1 done) Suggestions for additions to the above list are welcome by PM.
