Project VDW contains a package that generates van der Waerden sequences.
Project VDW is a an attempt to further research into van der Waerden sequences.
The software consists of a client that generates sequences, and a utility to generate unique starting seeds.
The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a BOINC-based client that can supply the massively parallel computing resources necessary to solve currently untouched sequences.
Currently the makefile will compile and test several different versions using char, u_char, int, u_int, long, and u_long as the element type.
Different architectures perform differently on chars vs ints and differently given the size of the data cache.
Feel free to try different combinations of element type to optimize the code for your particular configuration.
What's New in This Release:
¬· Changed to timed checkpointing
¬· Changed to millionbased accounting from 2^32 accounting
¬· Added Interrupted/Completed messages to output file
¬· Changed makefile to test different element types
¬· and lots of other cool stuff.
