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

program 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)

A collection of 'fixed n' sieves capable of quickly processing multiple integer sequences in k and n of the form k*2^n+/-1, where k < 2^62, n < 2^31.

TPSieve: originally developed by Geoff Reynolds for the Twin Prime Search, was meant for use in a sieve with one or a few n's. It was then modified by Ken Brazier, in collaboration with Geoff Reynolds, to make many-n searching efficient, within the fixed-n format. Additional modifications by Ken allowed tpsieve to sieve for the combined forms of k*2^n+1/k*2^n-1.

PPSieve: developed by Ken Brazier, is a modified version of TPSieve that sieves for single primes of the form k*2^n+1. Its strength is the many-n optimization. Also, with the --riesel flag, it can sieve for k*2^n-1.
