## Description

**Mtsieve** is a multi-threaded sieve framework for different sieving programs developed by Mark Rodenkirch.

## Included software

The package contains all C-sources and Windows executables.

The following tools are included:

- afsieve: search for factors of Alternating Factorials
- mfsieve: search for factors of Multifactorial numbers
- cksieve: search for factors of Carol-Kynea primes
- pixsieve: search for factors of a long decimal string where each successive term adds on decimal digit to the end of the previous decimal term
- fbncsieve: search for factors of numbers in the form k•b
^{n}+1 and k•b^{n}-1 for fixed b and n and variable k - fkbnsieve: search for factors of the form k*b
^{n}+c for fixed k, b, and n and variable c - gfndsieve: search for factors of k•2
^{n}+1, remaining terms are potential divisors of Generalized Fermat numbers - kbbsieve: search for factors of numbers of the form k•b
^{b}+1 or k•b^{b}-1 for fixed k and variable b - xyyxsieve: search for factors of x
^{y}+y^{x}and x^{y}-y^{x} - gcwsieve: search for factors of Gen. Cullen primes and Gen. Woodall primes
- psieve: search for factors of Primorials
- twinsieve: search for factors of twin primes
- dmdsieve: search for factors of numbers of the form 2*k*(2
^{p}-1)+1 (potential divisors of Double Mersenne numbers)
