Are the recent advancements for GIMPS (VDF, Gerbicz check, Jacobi check) worth publishing?

But, as you suggest, some might not be worth collecting in the bigger calculus (economic tradeoffs, expediency, etc). henryzz question really perked up my ears. Is this seminal? Worth formally publishing?

It's worth bearing in mind that this isn't the only advancement we have had recently. The Jacobi checks for LL and Gerbiz test for prp are also newish. Maybe a paper reviewing all of these advancements would be in order.

Indeed. Paul (Xilman) or someone else with a low Erdos number needs to be involved. Also, if small bits of minor work on the paper could be handed out so us nonmath mortals can get named that would be great. Most of us can generate graphs from given data sets, or run some simple stats. Early beta testers (v30.1) might get a nod.

Perhaps this is worth formally writing up. We have a lot of talent here, which could be brought to bear. No need to compare how large or small our numbers are. Simply, who can (and is willing) to help?

1) literature review is a must before even trying to publish
2) search on https://www.scopus.com/home.uri for medium to highest impact journals Last fiddled with by pinhodecarlos on 20200819 at 21:07

I can provide any academic paper if you make me a list of DOI’s. Last fiddled with by pinhodecarlos on 20200819 at 21:21
