WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't believe it when I saw something in the output file... but it was true :
2003663613*2^1950001 is prime! 2003663613*2^195000+1 is prime! I hope there's no bug in the program I let you crosscheck it... Eric

Yes, you should have to check this, because for k*2^n1 the LLR do *only* a PRP test, because a true primality test is a little slower. The primality test is a classical p+1 test. ( I think for k*2^n+1 a PRP test is equivalent to a Proth test in LLR so that sholud be OK ).
You've beaten the hungarian Járai Antal and his team's twin prime record at ELTE. Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20070115 at 09:00

I hope that twinprimesearch.org will be cited in the papers on this discovery.
Thanks to everybody !

I hope the proper channels were used to notify, in order to keep others from reporting the twin prime.

I emailed Chris Caldwell telling this discovery. Please write down the names (name , surname, age and country) of the people who should get credit of this discovery.
Even if twinprimesearch.org should not get any credit, i Hope that you agree that it should be cited in the papers of the discovery. I think something like that: "Today, January 15, 2007 two distributed computing projects, Twin Internet Prime Search and PrimeGrid, have found the largest known twin primes: 2003663613*2^1950001 and 2003663613*2^195000+1 . The numbers have XXXX digits. The discovery was made by: <LIST OF THE PEOPLE WHO GETS CREDITS>". we should send this news to the Guinness World Records.

The twins have 58711 digits (in base 10).
I've also finished a check by pfgw on my slow computer: Code:

(477.5060s+0.0083s) Done.

Please note that LLR does a deterministic primality test on both k*2^n+1 and k*2^n1 numbers, not a PRP! It actually does a PRP test only if the base is not two. Regards, Jean
