DC has been completed but no factors found
So does this mean this exponent is prime now that a doublecheck has found no factors, or is another test still pending?
https://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/63459197 EDIT: Scratch that, does this mean then that a PRP is now needed to see if it's prime? Last fiddled with by piforbreakfast on 20211024 at 19:34

PRP is not necessary. PRP/Cert is a recent replacement for the LL/DC tests. A separate process can try to find factors (TF or P1 or ECM). However, is the factors are large enough they will not be found by these methods...in the foreseen future anyway.

5. PRP can prove a Mersenne number composite. It does not quite prove a prime prime. It yields "proven composite" or "probably prime". Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20211024 at 21:43

Users can even run the PRP on an exponent with a known factor and Prime95 won't recognize it. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20211026 at 02:35

Depends on the app and PRP type, but:
Code:
{"exponent":"82589933", "worktype":"PRP3", "status":"P", "program":{"name":"gpuowl", "version":"5.09c13870"}, "timestamp":"20181226 20:15:41 UTC", "aid":"0", "fftlength":4718592, "res64":"fffffffffffffffc", "residuetype":4} https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...1&postcount=13 https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...83&postcount=8
