What is the next number in the sequence 2, 3, 4, 82000, ...? It is a well defined sequence, but it may or may not have a 5th number!
To learn how the sequence is defined, see http://andybohn.com/82000/
For an overview of how this code searches for the next number: http://andybohn.com/82000-2/
Finally, code details, scaling, and performacnce can be found here: http://andybohn.com/82000-3/
As of October 20, 2015, I have checked numbers with less than 27.5 million digits and have not found the next number.
- Specify options such as min base, max base, and starting number on the command line or in an input file
- Print maximum number checked instead of the number that the master thread has just finished checking
