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 'fixed k' sieve for multiple integer sequences in n of the form k*b^n+c, where k < 2^64, |c| < 2^63, b < 2^32.

Srsieve was originally developed to speed up sieving for the Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 projects, which seek primes of the form k*5^n+/-1 for certain even values of k.

Some specialised versions of the program are faster in certain cases:

sr1sieve: A single sequence k*b^n+/-1 with k < 2^64, b < 2^32.

sr2sieve: Multiple sequences k*b^n+/-1 or b^n+/-k with k < 2^32, b < 2^32.

sr5sieve: Multiple base 5 sequences k*5^n+/-1 with k < 2^32.
