I saw that PPS picked up 100 < k < 300 when n = 3050000 was reached. Do you have an ETA on when it will reach Mega prime territory?

Will PPS-Mega be merged with PPS at that point or will Mega continue with even larger n? Like a PPS-Crore... :)

Very rough estimate: two years. (EDIT: actually more like 1. My initial guess didn't fully account for LLR2.)
Will PPS-Mega be merged with PPS at that point or will Mega continue with even larger n? Like a PPS-Crore... :)

I don't think a final decision has been made, but most likely PPS will leapfrog to the next untested candidates past the old PPS-Mega range, and Mega will continue unchanged (remember, it's searching PPSE k's, and PPSE won't reach Mega range for many years.) While starting a new subproject within PPS isn't impossible, I doubt it would be in the crore range, as that would require a ton of sieving which hasn't been done yet. (That is an interesting idea for the somewhat distant future though.)

A new Crore subproject might be too slow considering progress on SoB. On the other hand, these k's have higher weight.

What is the PPS Mega range?

What is the PPS Mega range?

We're currently testing 1200 < k < 10000 (PPSE k's) starting from n=3.322M (essentially the megaprime threshold). Previously, we tested k < 1200 (PPS k's) from n=3.322M up to 3.64M, except for those that had been tested previously. The switch happened in July 2019, when it was realized that the candidates had grown enough in size that starting over with new k's would give us a more efficient mega search.

Sometime in 2021, give or take a year, PPS-LLR will catch up with where PPS-MEGA started. At that point, PPS will skip over the candidates already tested by PPS-MEGA, and continue searching k<1200.

I wonder if there are going to be extra many people running PPS in a "race" to reach this milestone. /JeppeSN
