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 "Riesel Prime Search" project is searching for Riesel primes k*2^n-1, k>1. We have three subprojects as follows.
(1) k's that can produce many primes in the given range of exponent n,
(2) low-weight k's that produce a very small number of primes [opposite to (1) above],
(3) small k < 300 (with exception of those k's already reserved by other projects).

How To Join
Everybody is welcome to join the project. Just visit the forum link given above, have a look what's going on, and reserve your first file to test!

Software Used
Primality Testing: LLR. pfgw and Proth.exe used for small exponents (less than 10k or 20k) and for double-checking.
Sieving: srsieve and NewPGen.
