On November 10th, 2017 our “4000 Chebyshev Bias Tester” fully determined the first sign-changing zone for ∆{8;7,1}(x) in Chebyshev’s bias (where ∆{8;7,1}(x) is equal to -1).

This zone starts with the prime 192252423729713, includes 234937 terms and ends with the prime 192876135747311. Continue reading

# Full data on all 8 zones with 0 values for ∆{4;3,1}(x) in Chebyshev’s bias published

Оn October 15, 2017 we published in Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS) under A007351 the full data on all 419467 primes where ∆{4;3,1}(x) is equal to zero. Staring from 27410th term equal to 9103362505753 the published sequence includes data on the 8th sign-changing zone, that was predicted back in 2001 by a group of American mathematicians, but was never actually found.

Hudson and Michael Rubinstein to be around 9.318*10^{12} . Continue reading

# Number of steps in Collatz sequence for Mersenne primes available for download

The data on the number of steps to reach one in Collatz sequence for Mersenne primes from the 1st to 45th (the last with confirmed index) became available for download from OEIS (A181777). The full sequence from the 1st to 49th Mersenne prime (the last known as of today) could be downloaded from our repository.
