Title: Project Overview

Project Summary

Today (2/2/2021) we have re-launched the project following acceptance for publication of a paper on our previous phase (see arxiv). Our research objectives in phase 2 are to focus on the two-color case, for which we have found several improvements in memory and compute efficiency. The last iteration of the project found 12 new bounds, and the current one should find about 5. Strange properties in our best primes have caused us to save the results for each prime (in short, the best primes p seem to be such that p-1 has few factors). You can monitor our development progress and view frequently asked questions here and post to the message boards or message me (id=1) with any problems. You can also check our latest bounds here and the last prime used  here. (
