Seventeen or Bust
Project site: http://www.seventeenorbust.com
Team listing: http://www.seventeenorbust.com/stats/teams/team.mhtml?teamID=337
Team creator: Zoink (HaiCube)

Platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Linux
  • FreeBSD
  • BeOS 4.5+/Zeta/Haiku

Seventeen or Bust is a distributed computing project to prove the Sierpinski Conjecture. Sierpinski stated that for the formula k2^n + 1, there exists values of k where the formula is never equal to a prime regardless of the value of n. His conjecture is that 78557 is the lowest (k-value) number that this can be applied. At the start of the project, there were seventeen k values below 78557 where prime numbers had not been found for a given n. As of October 19, 2005 (still true September 2006) the project has identified primes for 9 of the k values. So there are 8 k-values to find primes if Sierpinksi’s Conjecture is to be proven.

RC5-72 is a distributed computing project led by distributed.net to decrypt a message encoded with RSA Lab’s 72-bit RC5 encryption algorithm. This is the third in a series of contests to analyse encryption strengths. The first contest involved a 56-bit key and the second a 64-bit key. Of particular note is that if a member of the team finds the key, both the member and the team gets $1000.

EON Project
Project site: http://eon.cm.utexas.edu
Team listing: http://stats.free-dc.org/new/teamstats.php?proj=eon&team=Team+Haiku
Team creator: Minbari

Platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Mac OS X
  • Linux

From site:
"A common problem in theoretical chemistry, condensed matter physics and materials science is the calculation of the time evolution of an atomic scale system where, for example, chemical reactions and/or diffusion occur. Generally the events of interest are quite rare (many orders of magnitude slower than the vibrational movements of the atoms), and therefore direct simulations, tracking every movement of the atoms, would take thousands of years of computer calculations on the fastest present day computer before a single event of interest can be expected to occur, hence the name EON, which is an immeasurable period of time."

grid.org
Project site: http://www.grid.org
Team listing: http://www.grid.org/services/teams/team.htm?id=974E5AFB-9838-41EA-AF59-E378E064FE60
Team creator: cwanner (Katisu)

Platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT 4.0 (SP5+), 2000, XP

Grid.org has been formed to do various distributed computing projects as needed. It is currently running two projects, the Cancer Research Project and Human Proteome Folding project. You can choose to run either or both. Its first major project was the Cancer Research Project which analyzed drug molecules as possible cures for cancer. The first phase of the project determined several eligible candidates. Currently the project is in phase 2 where new software is being used to refine the data farther. The Human Proteome Folding project (Rosetta software - see Rosetta@home) is designed to unravel the protein structures hidden inside the Human Genome. Additional projects that have been done and completed in the past have been the smallpox and anthrax research projects.

From site:
"Today, protein sequence comparison is the most powerful tool in computational biology for characterizing protein sequences because of the enormous amount of information that is preserved throughout the evolutionary process. SIMAP is a public database of pre-calculated protein similarities that plays a key role in many bioinformatics methods. It contains about all currently published protein sequences and is continuously updated. The computational effort for keeping SIMAP up-to-date is constantly increasing. Please help to update SIMAP by calculating protein similarities on your computer. The computing power you donate supports manifold biological research projects that make use of SIMAP data."

From site:
DIMES is a distributed scientific research project, aimed to study the structure and topology of the Internet, with the help of a volunteer community.
Due to the way the Internet is engineered, distributing the Internet mapping effort is very important, and the only efficient way to measure the Internet structure is by asking you to participate. What we ask is not so much your CPU or bandwidth (which we hardly consume), but rather, your location. The more places we’ll have presence in, the more accurate our maps will be. Understanding the structure and function of the Internet is an important research task, that will allow to make the Internet a better place for all of us.

Please PM umccullough or Katisu if you know of any others, or start one (preferably, the team name should be "Team Haiku" with a space between the words).

Thanks to all the team founders/creators for their diligent work to set up the teams for each project!

Credits go to Minbari, Katisu, and umccullough for putting together and maintaining the above listed projects and Team Haiku links.
