Default i am doing a reasearch project on GIMPS

I was just wondering if there are any good sources for more of the technical information behind how this works?

This is for my distributed systems class.

This is a good basic description of the math involved:
http://www.mersenne.org/various/math.php

If you were looking more for the info on how it works as a distributed computing project...I don't know about such a page. "This page describes what you will need to participate in GIMPS and how it works on your computer."
