Tables of Factors
The Internet has many tables of factors of various kinds of numbers.
the Cunningham Project finds factors of numbers
of the form a^n-1 and a^n+1, where a is from 2 to 12,
and n goes up to some limit,
so that the numbers to be factored are of some reasonable size,
say under 200 digits or so.
Links to some tables of factors.
The following sites have links to several tables of factors.
I have factorization tables for the following types of numbers:
Hisanori Mishima also has a table for
prime numbers strung together.
Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS)
has found several previously unknown
The most recent (but not largest) one is 2^42,643,801-1,
found on April 12th, 2009.
See my prime page for details.
