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)
The PRP (probable prime) program is designed to speed up the search for new primes in Yves Gallot's Proth prime project. This project began with Yves landmark proth.exe program several years ago. Over time the program grew to find Fermat factors and more types of primes. Paul Jobling later wrote NewPgen to speed up the sieving process. This new program takes the output of NewPgen and screens it for probable primes. The output of this program is then given to Yves' proth.exe for final primality proving.

To use PRP, first run NewPgen to create a file. Then, run PRP and select Test / Input Data. Specify the output file of NewPgen as the input file to PRP, also specify a new output file, and start at line 1. Finally, give the output file from PRP as the input file to Proth.exe. You can interrupt execution at any time, PRP will begin where it left off when you run it again.
