I've just had email to say I have found a prime, it's only ranked 3862. Ends in 13 so not so good !

https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=131244

Just got me wondering what happens when you find a huge one, does it get named after you, will you be splashed all over the newspapers and accosted by geeks in the street ?

I think if I found big one I would have it engraved on my headstone when I die. They better not get any digits mixed up or I'll come back and haunt them :)

Congratulations on your first reportable prime. Even huge primes are usually not noticed outside the PrimeGrid/MersenneForum environment. If you found a DYFL prime, I think it would go into some newspapers, because being the first world record outside GIMPS for many years, it would be a "good story". /JeppeSN

So I told my daughter the math major I was in this race to find the largest known prime number and she said, "What will you do with it when you catch it?"

For that purpose GIMPS is maybe better? Not to move you away from PG though ;)

"What will you do with it when you catch it?"
Actually, just finding the largest over and over again as GIMPS does, I also find it less interesting than finding special primes. For example, there are so few Cullen primes. Or getting a step closer to proving Sierpinski conjecture.

There are four types of project on PG to choose from.

1. A prime is required to prove a conjecture. Finding a prime and proving a conjecture will be great mathematical discovery.
2. Find rare prime of special from.
3. Just for fun and see your name mentioned on "Top 5000 primes" list.

Actually, @dannyridel there is too much incorrect within your list it is easier to clarify without editing the list...

First, SR5 is not in the list and should be listed in the conjecture projects.

Second, while most prime finds on SGS are not special forms, the project itself is actually searching for SG primes and Twin primes, both of which are quite rare and special.

Third, DIV is the primary project to search for Fermat Divisors, but all of the PPS projects as well as some others (321, 121, 27, etc.) can also find them.

Fourth, AP27 is missing from the list and probably deserves to be in the special forms group.

Fifth, all projects except for SGS, GFN15, AP27, and any sieves find primes that make the top 5k list.

Absolutely agree with Scott Brown. Note that if you find a prime in the SGS project which happens to be a twin or a Sophie Germain, your name will come on one of the Top Twenties. If you find a prime that divides a Fermat number, or one of the generalized Fermat numbers we care for, your name will come on one or more of the Top Twenties, and/or on the GFN factor list and subpages. If you find an AP that is sufficiently long, your name will come on the AP records list. /JeppeSN

I think if I found big one I would have it engraved on my headstone when I die. They better not get any digits mixed up or I'll come back and haunt them :)


I think they charge by the letter. :)


Good thing that it will a number then. :)
