Prime announcement (X^Y+Y^X, Primo, ECPP)
- Hi folks,
this morning, Primo (2.2.0 beta 1) 'surprised' me with this:
[PRIMO - Task Report]
Version=2.2.0 beta 1
Created=10/30/2003 05:10:39 PM
Candidate #1=Certified, 4662h 7mn 8s
Status=Candidate certified prime
So, the PRP 1723^1716 + 1716^1723 (5554 decimal digits) has been
proven prime! I await a new version of Jim Fougeron's Cert_Val to make
sure the certificate is valid before submitting to Chris Caldwell's
I used a Pentium IV at 1.8 GHz, so this is basically just under 1 GHzYear
of processor power.
Thanks to Marcel Martin for writing Primo, and giving me ample support
during the certification...

Most of the members are able to discuss primes and related issues in a civil fashion, without personal insults. Really, in my few months as a moderator I have found that a significant majority of the list is self-moderating.
