Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
This project is searching for a prime of the form k*5^n-1 for each even k less than 346802, to prove that 346802 is the smallest even base five Riesel number, and k*5^n+1 for each even k less than 159986 to prove that 159986 is the smallest even base five Sierpinski number. The original instigator of this project was Robert Smith who started it all with a post in the on 28 Sep 04.
