24109Re: Two large consecutive smooth numbers
- Mar 4, 2012Jim White & I have been trying to construct these things because they are grist for my
new factoring algorithm SMODA. That was one example of our output. Although we can break (and have broken) that record, I could only make N have about 30% more digits before
my current program would get very slow or self destruct.
If you have new approaches, and can break that record using them, great.
The PTE approach Broadhurst & Carmody were hinting at, is what I am using now for the
largest ones, so that's not a new idea unless you know something I do not about it.
If you are interested in donating computer time to this effort, intel last 10 years,
unix variant, ok to run weeks at a time in background, then
