BOINC
Compute for Science

  • BOINC lets you help cutting-edge science research using your computer. The BOINC app, running on your computer, downloads scientific computing jobs and runs them invisibly in the background. It's easy and safe.

  • About 30 science projects use BOINC. They investigate diseases, study climate change, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research.

  • The BOINC and Science United projects are located at the University of California, Berkeley and are supported by the National Science Foundation.

de_modfit_85_bundle5_3s_south_pt2_4
de_modfit_86_bundle5_3s_south_pt2_4
This new batch can be identified with the "_4" at the end rather than "_2" or "_3". As always, you'll see WUs from the old runs for the next week or so as those runs terminate. Please let me know if you experience any issues with the new runs.

Best,
Tom

[PrimeGrid] 2023 Tour de Primes is almost here!

It is almost time for PrimeGrid's annual Tour de Primes, our month-long celebration of prime numbers. 2 is the first prime number, so we will honor the second month of the year by awarding special badges to everyone who finds a top-5000 prime during February. This year, for the first time, all of our BOINC projects that search for primes large enough to be in the top 5000 utilize the fast double checking system, so every prime counts -- there's no double checkers. Come and join the fun as the primes fly -- or the server blows up.. Either way, it's going to be an exciting month! Details and discussion can be found at this forum thread: 2023 Tour de Primes

[RakeSearch] Processing of the square # 21 completed

Dear participants, processing of the square # 21 is fully completed! The square:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B
1 2 0 4 5 3 8 6 7 B 9 A
3 4 5 1 2 0 B 9 A 6 7 8
8 7 6 A 9 B 0 2 1 5 4 3
7 6 8 9 B A 1 0 2 3 5 4
A 9 B 7 6 8 3 5 4 0 2 1
5 3 4 0 1 2 9 A B 7 8 6
B A 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0
2 0 1 5 3 4 7 8 6 A B 9
9 B A 6 8 7 4 3 5 1 0 2
6 8 7 B A 9 2 1 0 4 3 5
4 5 3 2 0 1 A B 9 8 6 7

has 1185453085 orthogonal mates, like square square # 8. Presumably a some unknown transformations exist that can convert a square of other main class to this square.

Thank you for project attention, support and donation of CPU time!
