We count 351 members on this prime numbers list at the moment.
I was wondering how many and what prime project(s) they follow
at present. I counted all my prime projects together and I got

1) Find primes k*720^n+1 with n=1..open and k=2..719
2) Find a counterexample for my base10ABC conjecture
3) Find generalized Fermat primes (Yves' GFN search)
4) Find/prove Smoothly Undulating Palindromic Primes
5) Find a very large prime quadruplet (>2000 digits)
6) Find _5_ titanic primes in arithmetic progression
7) Find a gap between consecutive primes with a D>33
8) Find palindromic primes which include many zeroes

So I am working on 2^4 or 16* different prime projects at this
time. And every single one is a long-term project, which means
that it has been worked on for more than half a year (actually
four of them more than one year).

I'm really curious about what all the members of this list are
hunting for *at the very moment*. The number of projects alone
should be immense, but the kind of projects might surprise us.

PS: The numbering of my projects does not indicate the priority
of them. *So I am working on 2^4 or 16 different prime projects
since each of my projects is usually followed by a sub-project.

1) Presieving GFN numbers for Yves' GFN project
2) Something to do with small numbers, with Paul J.
3) Arithmetic Progression stuff with Arvind
4) Something secret, on my own.
5) Looking for a generalised fermat sequence with more than 5 initial
prime terms (on primepuzzles.net, they're fermatian primes)
6) Ooh, I did complete the 5000-5100 range, Hans, remind me to mail

I'm newer to this group and a lightweight on number theory, but I am
doing the following:

1) The Riesel Problem (from www.prothsearch.net).
2) Multifactorial primes (also from www.prothsearch.net). I hope
that Ray Ballinger updates his web site and adds a 'Reserve Range'
feature for primes of this form. It would also be nice if
NewPGen could sieve numbers of this form.
3) ECM factoring (on a Mac). I'm trying to port OpenPFGW to it,
but it is proving to be more difficult than I expected and my
skills don't seem to be up to the challenge.

I would bet that the Riesel and Sierpinski problems would be completed
with a year or two if they were incorporated into GIMPS or
distributed.net.

:o))

Today, the programs are "just" able to test some numbers between 10^6 and
10^7 digits. They are really too small for the solution of Sierpinski and
Riesel problems.
We have a 50% chance of solving Sierpinski problem with a 10^12 digits
prime. We have a 50% chance of solving Riesel problem with a 10^20 digits
prime. If no mathematical proof is found, I would bet that the Sierpinski
will be completed in about one century and the Riesel problem in about a
millenium.

My ambitions are:
1) to learn (or invent) some new theory in each new project
2) to get out [*] of Chris's top-200-by-Proth-cycles
3) to stay in Chris's top-10-by-numbers
So it's difficult to know what to do next.
Suggestions, consistent with these desiderata,
are always welcome.

I'm working in making a Java applet to factor as fast as possible, so
it can be used by the general people on Internet. I implemented the
algorithms ECM and SIQS.

Its Web address is:

http://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM

The source code is available in the same page.

In order to test the applet, I used it to factor a 80-digit composite
= P40 x P41 where:

P40 = (2^132 - 187)/3
P41 = 2^133 - 99

The computation took 2d 8h 57m 34s in a Celeron 566 MHz. The linear
algebra phase, using the Block Lanczos algorithm on a sparse binary
matrix of 26038 x 27379, took only 3m 30s.

There are several other people that are using the applet. See for
example the hunt for the factors of partition numbers P(n) at:

http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~KC2H-MSM/mathland/part/whatsnew.htm

where Tom Hill is using the applet to find the factors.

For comparison, Satoshi Tomabechi's SIQS took 100 minutes
for this c80

Still, it is great that you put your multi-method applet
on the web, Dario. To combine user-friendliness,
open source, web access, and decent speed is fine
service. Thanks for your work!
