 2021-11-26, 00:56 #1 charybdis     Apr 2020 929 Posts DONE - Polynomial selection for 2,2246M c221 and factoring This is one of only two remaining unambiguous GNFS numbers from the 1987 edition of the Cunningham book (base 2 <1200 bits), the other being 2,1109+ c225. Bob Silverman suggested that the forum run polynomial selection for this number, and Greg has agreed to sieve it with NFS@Home once a suitable poly is found. The composite is Code: 24023387191766184217094927222587025087468868508838209688355658860897738047963529318736265313199625192712082581481439831563094403250831892547179972207284600405234081309183045488404642574713121441527058807512178264038863337 This will be a degree-6 search. The obvious target for a good score is Gimarel's score of 3.36e-16 for 3,697+, which to the best of my knowledge is the only GNFS-221 that has ever been run before. The c220 record is 4.178e-16, so it's reasonable to believe that 3.5e-16 or better is possible. For those who prefer to use CADO, the parameters used to find the aforementioned c220 record polynomial might be a useful starting point: these are P=12M, incr=420, nq=46656, sopteffort=10, ropteffort=100. I am not claiming that these are optimal. The (pre-sizeopt) leading coefficient was in the 35M-40M range; unlike with degree-5, there did not appear to be a significant decrease in average polynomial quality with larger leading coefficients, so there was no need to move to higher values of incr. NFS@Home have a number of SNFS jobs queued up, so don't worry if you've been sieving 3,748+ for the last month and would like a break: there's no rush. It'll probably be about a week before I start any searching myself.
 2021-11-26, 22:46 #2 swellman     Jun 2012 74128 Posts Sounds fun. Love your recipe for CADO, though I may increase ropteffort and sopteffort a bit. One question - is tasks.wutimeout = 24000 (default) sufficient? Reserving 1e3 < c6 < 2e6. ETA: adrange = 1680 Last fiddled with by swellman on 2021-11-27 at 00:55 Reason: Add adrange

Depends if you set ropteffort very high. With ropteffort=100 you'll be fine. 200 might potentially need more time on old/slow CPUs.

 2021-11-27, 02:26 #4 swellman     Jun 2012 385010 Posts FWIW, msieve is looking for an e-score of at least 2.71e-16 to > 3.12e-16. I’m running some msieve-GPU for c6 < 1M. Not expecting much from msieve on a C221 but blind squirrels etc. CADO is running on one of my old quad core laptops. It is SLOW but fingers crossed a flare pops up. Thank you for the advice @charybdis!

If there is little dropoff in score for larger leading coeff's, doesn't that argue for incr-4620 rather than 420? That is, we should take advantage of the slightly better typical poly that an extra small-factor of c6 provides, since the downside of searching large c6 range doesn't seem to be a problem?

Perhaps. While I didn't see much dropoff up to 40M, that doesn't mean there won't be by 400M. I suppose the prudent thing to do would be to run smallish ranges (100k?) at 40M and 400M and compare the "exp_E" scores of the polynomials at the bottom of the priority queue from each run.

 2021-11-29, 21:06 #8 swellman     Jun 2012 2·52·7·11 Posts Very nice! A new record for C221, but can an even higher score be found? 3.7-3.8e-16 perhaps? I’ll keep searching but you’ve set the high water mark!

This is good enough that I'll stay away for longer than I was planning; there are lots of new base-2 Cunninghams to do...

 2021-11-29, 23:43 #10 VBCurtis     "Curtis" Feb 2005 Riverside, CA 160B16 Posts Would Greg like some test-sieving done? I can try to quantify the tradeoff between 34LP and 34/35 for this job, for instance. This poly is "good enough", but this is a very big job and saving even 1-2% of sieve time is quite a few workunits from the elves; a 2% savings is roughly a C190 sieve job in time saved! So, we should continue to look for a 3.6. There's some chance of "spin" still, too. Edit: I'm busy with ECM pretesting a couple jobs for 15e queue to meet the upcoming "challenge" demand, I'll work on CADO select on this job in a couple weeks once I get two jobs posted to 15e.

Done searching. Can’t find a poly even close to Gimarel’s gem.
