    NumberFields@home: New project

    I will say again: Do not attach if you are concerned about losing credits, poor credits, crashing machines, or whatever. It is a newborn, so expect problems. You have been warned. No complaining.

    http://stat.la.asu.edu/NumberFields/

    NumberFields@home searches for fields with special properties. The primary application of this research is in the realm of algebraic number theory. Number theorists can mine the data for interesting patterns to help them formulate conjectures about number fields. Ultimately, this research will lead to a deeper understanding of the profound properties of numbers, the basic building blocks of all mathematics.

    NumberFields@home is based at the school of mathematics at Arizona State University. The final results of this project will be complete tables of number fields. The results are given in table form or as a searchable database.
    I am pretty sure this means there is a finite project life. No idea if that means weeks, months or years. Postpone MMs at your own risk.

    Only Linux and Windows currently supported
    In addition, only the 64bit Linux version is available. If you are a 32 bit linux user or a mac user, please check back later. We plan to support those platforms in the near future.

    Edit: However, CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT NOW! Even if you heed my warning, and don't start crunching right away. Projects occasionally close to new members when they have enough members.

    Good point, and one I forgot to make. Create your account NOW! Even if you heed my warning, and don't start crunching right away.

    Just to let you know, almost all of my tasks here have never ended. Only 1 has actually completed in the 5-6 hour time span. They have bugs to work out, obviously.

    What makes you think there are bugs (other than the progress meter, obviously)? The tasks just have varying run times. Some short, some long. My longest so far is over 16 hours. But not a single error yet for me
