Base 44 is initialized and ready for inclusion. I have to catch up on GIMPS and run some LLR timing tests over the next couple of days, so I don't know what will be next.

OK perfect !
I will add base 44 in the next update.
Thank you very much.

Is there a special system for placing reservations? I'll start on 79^76.


How are new bases started?

To make reservations, simply go to this page :

http://www.aliquotes.com/aliquotes_p..._entieres.html

Then, you just have to click on a base, for example base 79.
And there you can see that from exponent 64 you can reserve sequences. Of course, the sequences in the green cells are already finished. All sequences of exponents below 64 are either finished or already reserved by the contributor "UNC".

To start a new base, you just have to tell me.
Then you can initialize it, i.e. finish as many sequences as possible for which the exponent is of the same parity as the base (the trivial sequences) and at least try for the non-trivial sequences to reach the 100 digits. Once this is done, I add the new base to the page.

The new bases to be added are those lower than 100 which are not yet on the page, those belonging to cycles, for example the cycle of length 28 (for the moment, we have only the base 14316 which is only one of 28 elements of this cycle).
If you have a lot of computing power, it may be very interesting for us if you decide to finish the computations of the trivial sequences of bases that are doubles of squares, for example bases 242, 288, 338.
Finally, maybe you have a new idea to test and you choose to do calculations for a brand new base of a brand new kind. And maybe because of your new idea, we will notice something new...

Not to overshadow garambois, but a mention in this thread, as you did, will reserve it (after checking the table as garambois mentioned). However, the reservation will not show on the table until the next update, so you should also do a quick search a few posts back in this thread to see if anyone else might have already posted about it.A "CTRL-F 79^76" should be sufficient to catch such.

Thanks, I read your site, so I decided on 79^76, but how do I reserve it? Just posting here?

What does that mean? Even exponent for even base and odd for odd?


I don't have a lot of computing power for factorization, just a 10 core. So everything larger than 170 digits is quite an adventure... :D

Yes. If you notice in the tables, all but one of these types (that is within range of our work) has taken a down-turn and fallen to a prime. The sole counter-example is one which merged with a sequence from the main project (18528) and is open-ended and growing. That sequence (18528) is a thread by itself being offered as a team project. It was provided in that manner to offer some smaller factoring opportunities for those that can't really work on 200+ digit numbers, as the other team projects have grown to.

Yes.
And it will be noted on the page at the next update.

What kind of work do you prefer at the moment, initializing new bases < 100 or continuing existing ones like the 79^76?

I don't mean to speak on behalf of Jean-Luc, but my understanding is that the current computational priorities are initializing new bases < 100 (which I'm doing) and terminating trivial sequences, with a side subproject of initializing bases belonging to the 5- and 28-cycles (which I've also participated in). yafu@home (yoyo) handles most of the cycle advancement here, but only to a certain limit.

As for my progress (to avoid making two posts), I'm probably going to start base 48 Saturday (it's 2 AM here, but it feels like Friday still). I'm not reserving the cycle sequences at this time.

Ok, then I'll finish term 26 of 79^76 and then begin with base 53 which seems the smallest prime base not initialized yet. A lot of the smaller exponents for 53^n are already terminated in factordb.



Is there any advice on initializing or should I just use aliqueit?
