project 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 PrimeSearch project was originally created by Michael Hartley to search for primes of the form k*2^n-1 (Riesel primes) for k=300-1001 up to n=600K.

In Jan. 2008, the project was expanded by the "No Prime Left Behind" (NPLB) project at the mersenneforum.org site. The intent now is to find Riesel primes that have not been found by others (or otherwise left behind) in a much larger n-range than the original PrimeSearch project. This includes mostly top-5000 efforts but from time-to-time can include non-top-5000 and/or double-check efforts.

New searches are currently being conducted for k=300-1001 for 100's of k's at once and occassional double-checking is ongoing at lower n-ranges.

Coordinated team drives, automated PRPnet processing, and well-sieved files already available make finding primes very quick and easy for both novices and experienced prime searchers alike. Sieved files are also available for those who like to search their own k's or who like to search for primes offline in a less-automated fashion.
