Help wanted, Mersenne base Cunningham numbers
I would like to request help to factor numbers of the form M^k1, where M is a Mersenne prime. factordb has most up to date results on this, and this is where i submit whatever factors i find. The factorizations are of interest for construction of random number generators with large moduli, if there is interest i can explain in more detail. Currently, I am most interested in M8 and M9. I choose k so that the algebraic factorizations are most numerous and bring down the number of digits remaining to factor as much as possible. Namely, of interest are
k=210 and k=168 for M8=2^311 AND k=32 and k=60 and k=42 for M9=2^611 These currently usually just one composite factor, of 100200 digits, and I am running ECM on them with whatever i got, which is not much. Few dozen curves with 1E6. Help would be greatly appreciated.

There is only one composite number (of 199 digits) in the range for those two k's, all the rest are 200500 digits composites. Are you talking about that one, or in general?

The other three k have rather smaller co factors. For k=60, there's a C117 that should last no more than a day against my yafu+Intel. Consider that a reservation. (The next smallest is a feasible C191; if it stands ECM, it would be an interesting GNFS job, if fivemack were willing to post process.) (PS Perhaps a mod should move this to its own thread.)

Crosspost. Anyway 
You need to run over cyclotomic factorizations. For k=60 and M9=2^611, the only cofactor left is for (2^611)^10+1, a c117, a very easy gnfs. For x=M9, k=42, both composite cofactors are from polcyclo(21) and polcyclo(42) and would be moderate snfs221 jobs with nice sextics. No gnfs191 here. Code:

That C117 had a P33  I probly shoulda done some ECM first. Oh well, it wasn't too huge a miss.
(Besides, in 30 mins of GPU poly select, I got an amazing poly.) Code:

thanks!
Thanks everyone who is helping with these Mersenne base Cunningham numbers. (Is this a good name for them?)
many of the factors have not been very much attacked with ecm, but the c191, which is the remaining factor of M9^321 is at http://factordb.com/index.php?id=1100000000572386673 is a hard one, so far few thousand curves at 1E7 did not crack it. As far as my application is concerned, I am fully happy for now, as M9^601 is now CF. K

I've run ~1100 11e6 curves on each of the eight composites. Some small factors easily fell off of the c4xx numbers.
The c212 cofactor can be done by someone on a home computer (it will need some more ECM, though), the others are harder. I'll split this into another thread.

Well, because this is a snfs221, it would be prudent to eliminate factors up to 2/9 (or 2/8^{th}) of the size before actually running SNFS. So, that's about 50 or if we are generous, 55digit level. I am running some 43e6 curves on the three smallest composites (this corresponds to the 50digit level).
There's a very little chance that a factor will be found with 1e6 (not totally impossible, but very low). The 3e6 was already run (2350 curves), many 11e6 curves were run, so now 7550 curves with 43e6 need to be collected (from all volunteers, who could post there number of curves here) and then someone with clear conscience could go for a SNFS job. P.S. Of course, the 43e6 curves are slow, but that's the only reasonable thing to do. Sample timings are: Step 1 took 260,296ms Step 2 took 76,713ms (i.e. maybe 1112 curves per hour on 1 relatively modern cpu) Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20130113 at 02:14
