1 "Prime Rank" is where the leading edge candidate, if prime, would appear in the Top 5000 Primes list. "5K+" means the primes are too small to make the list.
2 First "Available Tasks" number (A) is the number of tasks immediately available to send.
3 Second "Available Tasks" number (B) is additional candidates that have not yet been turned into workunits. If the first number (A) is 0, something is broken. If both numbers are 0, we've run out of work.
4 Underlined work is loaded manually. If the B number is not underlined, new candidates (B) are also automatically created from sieve files, which typically contain millions of candidates. If B is infinite (∞), there's essentially an unlimited amount of work available.
5 One or two tasks (A) are generated automatically from each candidate (B) when needed, so the total number of tasks available without manual intervention is either A+B or A+2*B. Normally two tasks are created for each candidate, however only 1 task is created if fast proof tasks are used, as designated by an "F" next to "CPU" or "GPU".
6 Includes all primes ever reported by PrimeGrid to Top 5000 Primes list. Many of these are no longer in the top 5000.
F Uses fast proof tasks so no double check is necessary. Everyone is "first".
MT Multithreading via web-based preferences is available.

About

PrimeGrid's primary goal is to advance mathematics by enabling everyday computer users to contribute their system's processing power towards prime finding. By simply downloading and installing BOINC and attaching to the PrimeGrid project, participants can choose from a variety of prime forms to search. With a little patience, you may find a large or even record breaking prime and enter into Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database with a multi-million digit prime!

PrimeGrid's secondary goal is to provide relevant educational materials about primes. Additionally, we wish to contribute to the field of mathematics.

Lastly, primes play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of prime numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure.

PrimeGrid is currently running several sub-projects:
  • 321 Prime Search: searching for mega primes of the form 3·2n±1.
  • Cullen-Woodall Search: searching for mega primes of forms n·2n+1 and n·2n−1.
  • Generalized Cullen-Woodall Search: searching for mega primes of forms n·bn+1 and n·bn−1 where n + 2 > b.
  • Extended Sierpinski Problem: helping solve the Extended Sierpinski Problem.
  • Generalized Fermat Prime Search: searching for megaprimes of the form b2n+1.
  • Prime Sierpinski Project: helping the Prime Sierpinski Project solve the Prime Sierpinski Problem.
  • Proth Prime Search: searching for primes of the form k·2n+1.
  • Fermat Divisor Search: a subset of the Proth Prime Search specificically searching for divisors of Fermat numbers.
  • Seventeen or Bust: helping to solve the Sierpinski Problem.
  • Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5: helping to solve the Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Problem.
  • Sophie Germain Prime Search: searching for primes p and 2p+1.
  • The Riesel problem: helping to solve the Riesel Problem.
  • AP27 Search: searching for record length arithmetic progressions of primes.
   You can choose the projects you would like to run by going to the project preferences page.

SR5 Mega Prime Find!
On 19 June 2022, 04:26:15 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Problem project eliminated k=63838 by finding the mega prime:

63838*5^3887851-1

The prime is 2,717,497 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's “The Largest Known Primes Database” ranked 99th overall. 58 k’s now remain in the Riesel Base 5 problem.

The discovery was made by Scott Lee (freestman) of China using an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Six-Core Processor with 32GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 11 Professional x64 Edition. This computer took about 4 hours, 34 minutes to complete the prp test using LLR2. Scott is a member of the team, Chinese Dream.

Pi Approximation Day Challenge starts July 22
The fifth challenge of the 2022 Series will be a 3-day challenge celebrating the day that our arbitrary measurement units for the Earth's rotation align to numerically resemble the fraction 22/7, which approximates the value of the infamous circle constant 'pi' with an error of 400ppm! Honestly, I'm not sure why March 14th gets all the love -- 3.14 is a much worse approximation for pi!

The challenge will be offered on the PPS-LLR application, beginning 22 July 22:00 UTC and ending 25 July 22:00 UTC. To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Proth Prime Search LLR (PPS) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section.

For more info, questions, and lively debate about the best approximation for pi (it's 3 😁), check out the forum thread for this challenge: https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=9959&nowrap=true#156359

M.C. Escher's Birthday Challenge starts June 17th
The fourth challenge of the 2022 Series will be a 5-day challenge marking the 124th birthday of Maurits Cornelis Escher, one of the world’s most famous graphic artists. His art is admired by millions of people worldwide, as can be seen by the many websites on the internet. The challenge will be offered on the SR5-LLR application, beginning 17 June 13:00 UTC and ending 22 June 13:00 UTC.
