GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 282589933-1 (24,862,048 digits)

Samuel Yates began, and this site continues, a database of the largest known primes. Primes in that database are assigned a proof-code to show who should be credited with the discovery as well as what programs and projects they used. (Discoverers have one prover-entry, but may have many proof-codes because they use a variety of programs...) This page provides data on x1, one of those codes.

Code name (*):x1   (See the descriptive data below.)

Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
This proof was achieved with specially written Pari-GP code that implements an extension of the Konyagin-Pomerance method to include factors of both N-1 and N+1. Massive use was made of ECM. Primeform did the BLS tests, which were necessary but _not_ sufficient. Primo proved the large factors of N^2-1. Andy Steward wrote VBA code to check the Pari-GP cubics.
