The first is an alternative to the Lucas Lehmer Test with comparable time results. It is a pow (with 3) in this form: pow(3, ((2**x-1)-1)//(x), 2**x-1) where the pow result is a powers of two number only for Mersenne Numbers M2 and above, and the result is 0 for M1. To use with the code simply use checkp2(mersenne_lr_k_ary(3, ((2**x-1)-1)//(x), 2**x-1, k=8) where k can be any number up to the limit you can calculate it too. The larger the k value, less multiplications are required. You can use debug and withstats ( without checkp2 ) to see the results. Here is example of it's use: Code: # In : x=mersenne # In : start = time.time() # ...: x=gmpy2.mpz(x) # ...: xx=checkp2(mersenne_lr_k_ary(3, ((2**x-1)-1)//(x), 2**x-1,8)) # ...: end = time.time() # ...: print(end-start) # 17.363231420516968 # This is python, so a c version of this code that uses a graphics cpu # # should be much faster, but this equivilent to lucas lehmer. # In : xx # Out: True # In : x=89 # In : mersenne_lr_k_ary(3, ((2**x-1)-1)//(x), 2**x-1,8) # Out: mpz(68719476736) # In : y = mersenne_lr_k_ary(3, ((2**x-1)-1)//(x), 2**x-1,8) # In : checkp2(y) # Out: True For the first example alternative math, any techniques or discoveries to lessen the k-ary multiplications for this pow would make it faster than lucas lehmer, which is interesting, so i wanted to show the math here. The second is a corollary to to Perfect Numbers. Instead of testing the additive of the factors, we test for the bitlength of the oddfactor of the number ( gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) ) where temp is the number you are testing. An example of this test for the perfect number for 127 which is 8128 ( altpn(127) ). If the prime is 2 return 6, this test works only for powers of 2 results. 2 returns 0 which isn't a powers of two. The first step is to check for the bit_length of 127: Code: # temp=8128 # first we extract the odd prime: # In : gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) # Out: mpz(127) # x = gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) # Then we divide by 127 from temp. # # In : gmpy2.mpz(temp//(gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) )) # Out: mpz(64) # y = gmpy2.mpz(temp//(gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) )) # The actual test is that y=64 and x=127 have the same bit_length and that # y and x+1 are powers of two numbers. If both of these is true then we only need to # test with a primetest for the odd factor to test it's primality. # Here below, is an example of it's use. This alternative math will only test positive for # perfect numbers, making it sort of a corollary to the actual proof. # In : levelx(8128) # Out: True Here is the code for the above for anyone interested in it: Code: # Here is code for the math provided: import gmpy2 def mer_rem(x, bits, mask): # Below is same as: return x % mask while True: r = gmpy2.mpz(0) while x != 0: r += x & mask x >>= bits if r == mask: r = gmpy2.mpz(0) if r < mask: return gmpy2.mpz(r) x = r def mersenne_test(x): # This pow test is equivilant to a Lucas Lehmer Test and its # speed would be increased with any modular exponentiation # techiniques or discoveries that reduce the number of multiplications # to get to the result return checkp2(mersenne_lr_k_ary(3,((2**x-1)-1)//x, 2**x-1, 5)) def mersenne_modp2(n, b): return gmpy2.mpz(n&(b-1)) def checkp2(n): return (n & (n-1) == 0) and n not in [0,1] def altpn(N): N = gmpy2.mpz(N) return pow(N,3) + -N * pow(N,2) + ((N+1)//2) * N + 0 def ffs(x): x=gmpy2.mpz(x) return gmpy2.bit_length(x&-x)-1 def mersenne_modp2(n, b): return gmpy2.mpz(n&(b-1)) def mersenne_lr_k_ary(a, b, n, k=5, withstats=False, debug=False): """ Compute a ** b (mod n) K-ary LR method, with a customizable 'k'. k changes work for every mersenne ( 5 seems optimal ) """ base = 2 << (k - 1) n = gmpy2.mpz(n) nbl = gmpy2.bit_length(n) if debug==True: count=gmpy2.mpz(0) # Precompute the table of exponents table =  * base for i in range(1, base): table[i] = mer_rem(table[i - 1] * a, nbl, n) #table[i - 1] * a % nbl #mer_rem(table[i - 1] * a, nbl, n) # Just like the binary LR method, just with a # different base # r = gmpy2.mpz(1) for digit in reversed(mersenne_digits_of_n(b, base)): for i in range(k): r = mer_rem(r * r, nbl, n) if debug == True: count+=1 if withstats == True: print(f"In k: {i}, {r}, {checkp2(r)}") if digit: r = mer_rem(r * table[digit], nbl, n) if debug == True: count+=1 if withstats == True: print(f"In digit: {table[digit]}, {r}, {checkp2(r)}") if debug == True: return r, count return r def mersenne_digits_of_n(n, b): """ Return the list of the digits in the base 'b' representation of n, from LSB to MSB """ digits = [] while n: digits.append(mersenne_modp2(n,b)) #n % b) n //= b return digits # Alternate Odd Factor ( not odd number ) Perfect Number Test (levelx) # Since 2 has no oddfactor return True for 6 # Step 1, check for powers of two for non odd factor # Step 2, check that bit_length offset of odd factor # equals that of the non odd factor # Step 3, check that odd factor + 1 is a p2 number # Step 4, check primality of odd factor # Result: Perfect Number is found or not found def levelx(N, withstats=False): if N <= 1: return False N = gmpy2.mpz(N) zero, one, two = gmpy2.mpz(0), gmpy2.mpz(1), gmpy2.mpz(2) temp = gmpy2.mpz(N) newlevel = gmpy2.bit_length(temp) primetest = gmpy2.mpz(temp//(two**(ffs(temp)))) offset = gmpy2.mpz(temp//primetest) nextlevel = newlevel // two check = temp // (two**nextlevel) prevtemp = two**nextlevel if N == 6: return True if withstats == True: print (newlevel, newlevel, temp) print (newlevel, nextlevel+one, prevtemp, primetest) if (prevtemp & (prevtemp-one) == zero) and prevtemp != zero: if gmpy2.bit_length(offset) == gmpy2.bit_length(primetest): if ((primetest+one) & ((primetest+one)-one) == zero): s = checkp2(mersenne_lr_k_ary(3,primetest//gmpy2.bit_length(primetest), primetest, 5)) if withstats == True: print(s) if s == True: return True return False else: return False else: return False else: return False  Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post amenezes Math 8 2020-09-26 15:46 henryzz And now for something completely different 42 2019-06-03 14:09 Robot2357 Math 6 2013-06-15 03:10 science_man_88 Miscellaneous Math 7 2010-07-14 12:35 Dougal Information & Answers 9 2009-02-06 10:25
