Factors of k*2^n±1 Project News

March 29, 2009: I've done k=15 up to n=555. Most of the factors < about 33 digits have been removed from the higher numbers. Enjoy!

You're more than welcome to participate in this factorization effort. Just download doecm, enter your name, and run. Source is included and should compile if you're using another OS as well. You will need gmp-ecm, http://www.loria.fr/~zimmerma/records/ecmnet.html , for it to work. Both downloading of composites and submission of found factors can be automated, leaving you to just start the program. It uses only your idle cpu time so don't worry about it slowing down your computer. You're of course welcome to skip doecm altogether and just factor the numbers in any way you see fit.

All numbers have had P±1 done to at least B1=1e8. Please let me know if you plan to do any further P±1.

If you're interested you can read some further, http://mklasson.com/factors/furtherinfo.php , information.

Aliquot sequences, http://mklasson.com/aliquot.php , may also strike your factoring fancy.
