Losing Downguide
In a similar vein to this thread. I will now show what 2^2 mutates into.
With one factor: 50% If p = 1 mod 4 then we get the downdriver. 50% If p = 3 mod 4 then the power of 2 is 2 or more: 25% If p = 7 mod 8 then the power of 2 is 2. With two factors:12.5% If p = 11 mod 16 then the power of 2 is 3. 50% If one of p and q = 1 mod 4 and the other 3 mod 4 then the power of 2 is 2. 25% If p and q = 3 mod 4 then the power of 2 is 2. 25% If p and q = 1 mod 4 then the power of 2 is 3 or more: 12.5% If p and q = 1 mod 8 or p and q = 5 mod 8 then the power of 2 is 3.Hopefully I haven't made the stupid mistakes I made in the other thread first time round.

Is it possible to catch the 2^2*7 driver directly from the downguide?

Yes, as soon as you hit a value of 2p, where p ≡ 25 mod 56.

That is correct for morphing from the downdriver to 2^2*7, not from the downguide (2^2).
e.g. http://factordb.com/search.php?se=1&aq=2*137 vs http://factordb.com/search.php?se=1&aq=2^2*137 Last fiddled with by TimSorbet on 20100210 at 20:03

Ah, downguide! Indeed, then. (I misread it.)
