User comments about this prime (disclaimer):
User comments are allowed to convey mathematical information about this number, how it was proven prime.... See our guidelines and restrictions.
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.

|notes||This prime was first verified by Tom Duell (Burlington, MA, USA) and Rob Giltrap (Wellington, New Zealand), both of Sun Microsystems, using the Mlucas program by Ernst Mayer of Cupertino California USA. The verifications ran on 8 dual-core SPARC64 VI 2.15Ghz CPUs of a Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 Server and 4 quad-core SPARC64 VII 2.52GHz CPUs of a Sun SPARC Enterprise M8000 Server in Menlo Park, CA, USA. The prime verification took 13 days.|
The prime was also independently verified by Tony Reix of Bull S.A. in Grenoble, France using 16 1.6 GHz Itanium2 CPUs of a Bull NovaScale 6160 HPC server and the Glucas program. Jeff Gilchrist of Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada has also verified the prime using up to 16 1.6 GHz Itanium2 CPUs of a server at SHARCNET, running the Glucas program by Guillermo Ballester Valor of Granada, Spain.
