found new Fermat factor
- November 2 2002
Today Vasily Danilov has informed:
found m=286, k=78472588395, n=288
78472588395.2^288+1 divides F_286
I apologize, that I dispatch it publicly, but I can not transmit it on any
address Wilfrid Keller.
All my messages not reception by his servers. Therefore I am forced to
inform it here.

searches taking place it's nice to be reminded oftheir progress every now
For those new to the list, Leonid is managing a distributed search for
factors of Fermat numbers (numbers of the form 2^2^n+1). If you have a PC
sitting idle then I heartily recommend you to visit the project's home page,
find out more, grab a client program, and join the search!
Congrats to Vasily, and good luck to _all_ testers!

Third rule of Factor Club - when the cofactor is prime, or you've trial-
divided up to the square root of the number, the factoring is over.
