Robert, could you make available a list of the primes you found for n <= 18468? Or if you email it to me ( geoff AT hisplace DOT co DOT nz ) I will make it available.
I will keep a list of primes that make the top 5000 list in http://www.geocities.com/g_w_reynold...ki5/champs.txt, there is just one entry so far. My results: I found (a while ago) that 32518*5^47330+1 is prime. I am reserving these k: 10918, 12988, 31712. Last fiddled with by geoff on 20050125 at 22:15

Hello all,
I agree with uncwilly that this project should deserve it's own private place... anyone know how to move it? In the meantime: One more down: PFGW Version 20041020.Win_Stable (v1.2 RC1c) [FFT v23.8] Primality testing 42004*5^27992+1 [N1, BrillhartLehmerSelfridge] Running N1 test using base 2 Calling BrillhartLehmerSelfridge with factored part 99.98% 42004*5^27992+1 is prime! (57.0569s+0.0044s)

Yet another one down
Hi all,
4th prime on here: PFGW Version 20041020.Win_Stable (v1.2 RC1c) [FFT v23.8] Primality testing 44134*5^39614+1 [N1, BrillhartLehmerSelfridge] Running N1 test using base 7 Calling BrillhartLehmerSelfridge with factored part 99.98% 44134*5^39614+1 is prime! (150.2650s+0.0062s) Cheers, Micha

The primes.txt file in http://www.geocities.com/g_w_reynolds/Sierpinski5/ contains the k,n pairs for all the primes k*5^n+1 found so far. It can be used as input to Proth.exe in file mode, or by adding 'ABC $a*5^$b+1' to the top, as input to pfgw.

Nought
This may come to nought, actually no, it will come to k+1
What am I talking about? n=0 > k*5^0+1= k+1 Therefore any k still remaining where k+1 is prime can be eliminated, unless that is not in the Sierpinski rule book. Looking at my original list, this would eliminate 7528 and maybe others....not got a list of primes to hand What does this group think of this wheeze? Regards Robert Smith

n=0
Following on, now I am home:
From the original list n=0 eliminates (and a number of these we have found already higher primes or prp for): 7528 15802 33358 43018 51460 81700 82486 90676 102196 105166 123406 123910 143092 152836 159706 Regards Robert Smith

Odds and evens
I posted the following message on Yahoo primenumbers to see whether one of the maths bods can give an answer. I am reasonably confident we should allow n=0
