A day after Christmas a computer has reported a new Mersenne prime.


...finished (first) double-check:
Mxxxxxxxx is prime!

Congratulations to all GIMPS participants on their 20+ years of continuing team effort!

They haven't made the actual number public yet, but here are some other numbers...

The largest non-Mersenne, the SoB we found last year, has a score of 1.13 million.

M49, the previous (assuming the new Mersenne is larger) world record, has a score of 16.03 million.

If the new prime has 25 million digits (pure speculation there -- I have no actual information), the score would be about 24 million.


For those who are interested, the formula is:

score = X^3 * ln(X) / Q

X is the size of the number expressed in base e -- i.e., it's similar to the standard length calculation LOG10(k) + LOG10(b)*n, except using the natural logarithm instead of the base 10 logarithm. So X = ln(k) + ln(b)*n.

Q is a scaling factor equal to 150732545640984000.

Furthermore, if you're the double checker, the score is reduced by 50%.

It's very similar to the scoring function used at T5K, but with a different scaling factor.

Would a potential GFN-23 be larger than the newest Mersenne prime?


Yes.

The answer to what is probably your next question:

It's doable, but...
A) It would be really big tests (4 times as long as GFN-22)
B) Lots of sieving needs to be done first
C) The chance of finding a prime is significantly less than finding one at n22, and we haven't found one yet at 22 after 5 years of searching. Or any at 21. The odds of success are not good.

When we first started, it wasn't even feasible because the state of the art GPUs had 1 GB of video memory. That's enough for GFN22, but not GFN23. If we did actually do this, I'd certainly restrict it to the faster video cards. You might want to think about tripling your GPU budget; a GT 1030 is not going to work on tests like that.

Items A and B we can overcome, but C makes it hard to justify the effort.

Unfortunately, the computer I'm putting the GPU in is a small-form-factor Dell Optiplex which has limited power and space.

Item B is a good reason to start GFN-23 sieving NOW. It would be good to get 5+ years of sieving in before starting GFN-23 tasks.

Would a potential GFN-23 be larger than the newest Mersenne prime?

GFN-22 is sufficient: 349218^(2^22)+1 > 2^77232917-1

Aka vote for GFN-WR. C'mon, we run 2 GFN 17 already, no reason NOT to run 2 GFN 22.

For those who weren't around back then, you might want to look up the discussion from when M49 was discovered. The same question was asked. The answer would be the same today. (It's actually not a bad question.)

Good! This also means that a GFN-23 would need the square root of that base to be big enough. I mean, iff

b > 2^(77232917/2^23) = 590.9

then b^(2^23) will exceed the new Mersenne prime M77232917.

Reading this, I found that any finder of a Mersenne Prime is awarded a $3000 Discovery Award (no matter what the size is). I assume there's no such award for anything found on PrimeGrid??

Correct. At least not unless we are the first to find a 100 million digit prime.

GIMPS' prize money comes from an anonymous EFF prize for the first 10 million digit prime (I think -- it may have been the first 1 million digit prime). GIMPS put that prize in the bank and uses that to fund the small prizes they give out for finding each new Mersenne.

There's another prize for the first 100 million digit prime.

I think (may be wrong) when GIMPS found the first 1 million digit prime (first megaprime), the EFF prizes had just been announced. I actually think the work unit that led to the discovery of the first megaprime, was sent to the GIMPS user before the EFF prizes had been published, but nobody knew at that time, then when the result was returned, the prize was there. If I recall correctly, the entire amount went to that one lucky GIMPS user.

After that, GIMPS made a policy that in the future the money should be split, with some going to the user who finds the relevant prime, some going to finders of other (Mersenne) primes, and some going to the GIMPS project itself. Which seems fair enough to me.

By the time the first 10 M digit prime was found, the prize was split according to their policy. If they are first at 100 M digits, it will be the same.

I suppose PrimeGrid needs no EFF prize policy because we will most probably lose the "battle" to GIMPS.

Having it and not needing it is better than needing it and not having it.

Yeah, 80M-90M digits.
(Edit: Ah, Michael Goetz already said this above…)

I think that means the exponent is between 80M and 90M.

Then the number of digits in the world record prime would be between 24,082,400 and 27,092,700.

Ahh, good old GIMPS ways:

As usual, the automatic email notification to myself and past Mersenne prime discoverers failed. Yes, the automatic email was debugged and tested after its last failure. Apparently bit rot set in. Fortunately the backup notification plan worked.

The new Mersenne prime is 282589933-1.

This prime is 24862048 digits long.

For those that are curious, the GFN that would be greater than this would be:
846398222+1 or 8463984194304+1
The current leading edge is 1393404194304+1, after almost 7 years.

If we were testing GFN23 the equivalent candidate would be:
920223+1 or 9208388608+1

SoB, even if we were done with the double check and were back processing leading edge candidates, would only be about 9 million digits. Even if we tested the entire contents of the SoB sieve file, that would only bring us to about 15 million digits.

The new Mersenne prime is 282589933-1.

The number of "huge" Mersenne primes is completely abnormal.

Pomerance conjectured that the expected number of Mersenne primes 2p-1 with p between n and 2n is about egamma, where gamma is Euler's constant.

egamma ~ 1.78 then the number of Mersenne primes with p in [n; 10n[ is expected to be 5.9. We have
# digits of p exp. found 1 5.9 4 2 5.9 6 3 5.9 4 4 5.9 8 5 5.9 6 6 5.9 5 7 5.9 5 8 5.9 > 13

Would you please move these recent posts about possible M51 to a new thread? I had to read way down before I realized the new posts were no longer about M50.

The simulation is breaking down! "They" never expected us to be using 100M bit numbers! ;)

This is not a simulation but a strong conjecture.
We can "simulate" the number of Mersenne primes with p in [x; 10x[ as being a Poisson distribution where the average number of events in the interval is λ = 5.9165945. We have:
n prob = n prob >= n 0 0.27 % 100.00 % 1 1.59 % 99.73 % 2 4.72 % 98.14 % 3 9.30 % 93.42 % 4 13.76 % 84.12 % 5 16.28 % 70.36 % 6 16.05 % 54.08 % 7 13.57 % 38.03 % 8 10.03 % 24.46 % 9 6.60 % 14.43 % 10 3.90 % 7.83 % 11 2.10 % 3.93 % 12 1.04 % 1.83 % 13 0.47 % 0.79 % 14 0.20 % 0.32 % 15 0.08 % 0.12 % 16 0.03 % 0.04 % 17 0.01 % 0.01 %

The chance that the number of Mersenne primes with 108 <= p < 109 is 13 or more is 1 in 126!
When this sort of thing is the result of one experiment in physics you start to look for the reason for the measurement error...

This is not a simulation but a strong conjecture.

My joke was obtuse, but I like your excellent ripost, effectively "reality is a strong conjecture".

Some people like to imagine that our reality is a big simulation (like the Matrix). With unlimited time, a finite-size computer with sufficient memory could simulate something as big as our "universe" with a finite precision in agreement with quantum theory. Since software is rarely bug-free, we have strong grounds to believe that reality is not a simulation. But finding unexpected results in the realm of pure math hints at an overflow condition in the simulation.

Do You Feel Lucky?

We may not win (i.e., find the next world record prime), in fact, it's rather unlikely, but the fun is in the journey, not the destination!

Good luck to everyone, including our friends at GIMPS!

The GIMPS guys are focusing on trial factoring, not doing Lucas-Lehmer tests on the 100 million primes or PRPs.
I hope that they will upgrade Prime95 becase it is so hard to use!

The GIMPS guys are focusing on trial factoring, not doing Lucas-Lehmer tests on the 100 million primes or PRPs.
I hope that they will upgrade Prime95 because it is so hard to use!


Opposite!
Prime95 is most optimized and very easy usable program !
And can be configured in many ways.

If GFN 23 aka "lucky" take only 23-24 hours on todays gf cards generation like 2080Ti..remind me relative short..
just if i compare to older times when was new nvidia 5xx or 6xx generations. take days to finnish one task..
maybe is time for bigger app .. i have no problem 7 day long task days on 2080Ti)). of course there is other factors what can complicated this big app ,,
For users wiht V100 nvidia is it just ..piece of cake..)
Problem is bigger app cannot by more lucky on prime.. but if try this many users.. i dont know.. i am not math spec..

Except there's no reason to, at least not just yet. If you can test GFN 23, you can test it's 22 equivalent, which will run faster by nature, so you're better off exausting the 22 range (either by checking everything or having GIMPS find something too large) before moving to 23.
