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.)

The PrimeSearch project was originally created by Michael
Hartley to search for primes of the form k*2^n-1 (Riesel
primes) for k=300-1001 up to n=600K.
In Jan. 2008, the project was expanded by the "No Prime
Left Behind" (NPLB) project at the mersenneforum.org site.
The intent now is to find Riesel primes that have not been
found by others (or otherwise left behind) in a much larger
n-range than the original PrimeSearch project. This
includes mostly top-5000 efforts but from time-to-time can
include non-top-5000 and/or double-check efforts.
New searches are currently being conducted for k=300-1001
for 100's of k's at once and occassional double-checking is
ongoing at lower n-ranges.
Coordinated team drives, automated PRPnet processing, and
well-sieved files already available make finding primes
very quick and easy for both novices and experienced prime
searchers alike. Sieved files are also available for those
who like to search their own k's or who like to search for
primes offline in a less-automated fashion.
