The number
is prime. Interested readers may read
for the origin of this number.

It has 20,562 decimal digits and the proof was built using fastECPP [1] on several networks of workstations. It was suggested as a challenge for primality proving. Since machines are more available than human time, letting them work for a somewhat unreasonnable amount of time is not an issue, as long as only one human check is needed from time to time. Thanks to stable power supply, and network, let alone a stable program, this record was possible. The computations were started on 32-bit machines (Sep-Oct 2005), and finished on nine 64-bit bi-processors (Feb-June 2006).

Cumulated timings are given w.r.t. AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 250 at 2.39 GHz.

1st phase: 1900 days (396 for sqrt; 384 for Cornacchia; 1353 for PRP tests)
2nd phase: 319 days (8 days for building all H_D's; 277 for solving H_D mod p)

It took 10 days to check the 1765 proof steps on a single processor.

Chris Caldwell writes (11 Sep 2014): 
The prime Franĉois Morain so masterfully proved prime, was found to be a PRP by Andrey Kulsha in Sept. 2002. For some reason I missed (or forgot) about that, and credited Phil Carmody for the find in
Phil did indeed independently (re)discover the PRP, but Andrey was first! But of course none of us could prove it prime!

Verification data:

The Top 5000 Primes is a list for proven primes only. In order to maintain the integrity of this list, we seek to verify the primality of all submissions.  We are currently unable to check all proofs (ECPP, KP, ...), but we will at least trial divide and PRP check every entry before it is included in the list.
