 2021-06-11, 07:47 #1156 Happy5214     "Alexander" Nov 2008 The Alamo City 3·11·23 Posts Would it be possible to add status indicators to the sequence cells showing how the sequence has changed since the last time the page was updated? Specifically, I propose showing how many terms the sequence has advanced, any changes in the term size (cofactor size changes can be ignored), and an icon (such as a check for prime and a cycle for cycle) if the sequence has terminated or merged since the last update (only for the update where the termination/merge is first displayed). I don't know how hard that would be for Karsten to implement, or whether the icon idea (specifically the cycle and merge ones; check marks are in most regular fonts) would require using emojis and/or web fonts or if it could be done with more basic Unicode and fonts.

 2021-06-11, 09:32 #1157 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 32·52·13 Posts Sure it's possible, but I'm against such changes for now. Why? The first page by Jean-Luc in 2018 he has updated by hand and was not very human readable, because of very long scrolling. So I showed him a better design and the automation of downloading and creating such a page which I had done with my Aliquot pages (and shown here) before the 'blue pages" were created. Although the most of this new page is done automatically, there's still some work only doable by hand like reservations, merges or new sequences. Such new options to show the changes since last update of any table would growth the code and handling again. Keep in mind: We should keep such handling as easy as can be for Jean-Luc. So please: let us use the current layout for a decent time, Jean-Luc can collect suggestions for further enhancements meanwhile.

OK, thank you very much.
I will add your name as the contributor who completed the 62^80 sequence in the next update.

OK, thank you very much.
I will add these two mergers for base 39 in the next update.

Thank you very much Alexander for all this work !
The new page is online and replaces the previous one.
During the summer, I will have time to complete this page with the demonstrations for the bases that are prime numbers.
Unfortunately, for the composite bases, I won't be able to do it !
I don't know if someone will find something by then ?

Honestly, I totally agree with Karsten's remarks.
I have very little time.
And I prefer to use that time to analyze the data to try to formulate new conjectures, rather than using it to make ever longer and more complex updates to the project page.
I know that the readability of the page is fundamental.
But the current page is already excellent for my taste, and allows me to do all the work I want to do.
Moreover, I would also like to spend time on other aspects concerning the aliquot sequences.
And I have to admit that since one year, I almost only work on this project which is certainly exciting.
But I also noticed some curious anomalies for example on the coefficients that I study on this page (sorry, it's in French) : http://www.aliquotes.com/vitesse_croissance.pdf
And I would like to continue working on this as well, because I have had three programs running on my computer for several years now and I will have to analyze this data.
Plus the fundamental database (regina_file) plus several other ongoing projects.

This is exactly what I said in a post a few days ago...

 2021-06-13, 07:29 #1164 Happy5214     "Alexander" Nov 2008 The Alamo City 3×11×23 Posts Base 40 is ready for inclusion. The trivial sequences are done to 130 digits, and I'm continuing above that as far as my 120-digit cofactor limit will allow. The non-trivial sequences up to i=61 have been taken to 100 digits.

OK, Many thanks.
I will add the base 40 in the next update.
We will then have started all the bases in an exhaustive way up to 43 included !

 2021-06-16, 03:54 #1166 Happy5214     "Alexander" Nov 2008 The Alamo City 3·11·23 Posts I finished base 24's trivial sequences up to i=96, leaving only the two largest trivial sequences in our range, which have also been ECMed. I am releasing all orange sequences for this base, which is currently up to 24^45.
