1"Prime Rank" is where the leading edge candidate, if prime, would appear in the Top 5000 Primes list. "5K+" means the primes are too small to make the list.
2First "Available Tasks" number (A) is the number of tasks immediately available to send.
3Second "Available Tasks" number (B) is additional prime candidates that have not yet been turned into workunits. Underlined work is loaded manually. If the first number (A) is 0, something is broken. If both numbers are 0, we've run out of work. Two tasks (A) are generated automatically from each prime candidate (B) when needed, so the total number of tasks available without manual intervention is A+2*B. If the B number is not underlined, new candidates (B) are also automatically created from sieve files, which typically contain millions of candidates. If B is infinite (∞), there's essentially an unlimited amount of work available.
4Includes all primes ever reported by PrimeGrid to Top 5000 Primes list. Many of these are no longer in the top 5000.

About

PrimeGrid's primary goal is to advance mathematics by enabling everyday computer users to contribute their system's processing power towards prime finding. By simply downloading and installing BOINC and attaching to the PrimeGrid project, participants can choose from a variety of prime forms to search. With a little patience, you may find a large or even record breaking prime and enter into Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database as a Titan!

PrimeGrid's secondary goal is to provide relevant educational materials about primes. Additionally, we wish to contribute to the field of mathematics.

Lastly, primes play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of prime numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure.

PrimeGrid is currently running several sub-projects:
  • 321 Prime Search: searching for mega primes of the form 3·2n±1.
  • Cullen-Woodall Search: searching for mega primes of forms n·2n+1 and n·2n−1.
  • Extended Sierpinski Problem: helping solve the Extended Sierpinski Problem.
  • Generalized Fermat Prime Search: searching for megaprimes of the form b2n+1.
  • Prime Sierpinski Project: helping Prime Sierpinski Project solve the Prime Sierpinski Problem.
  • Proth Prime Search: searching for primes of the form k·2n+1.
  • Seventeen or Bust: helping to solve the Sierpinski Problem.
  • Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5: helping to solve the Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Problem.
  • Sophie Germain Prime Search: searching for primes p and 2p+1.
  • The Riesel problem: helping to solve the Riesel Problem.
