program A titan, as defined by Samuel Yates, is anyone who has found a titanic prime. This page provides data on those that have found these primes. The data below only reflect on the primes currently on the list. (Many of the terms that are used here are explained on another page.)

Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
A sieve for generalised Cullen/Woodall numbers n*b^n+/-1, where n < 2^32, b < 2^32. This sieve requires an existing ABC file (as produced by MultiSieve) with all factors smaller than the greatest exponent n already removed. The algorithm is based on an idea of Harsh Aggarwal, implemented with the help of Mark Rodenkirch.
