I have been stricken from the limitations of these programs that are defined to 64bit and that instead have some limitations typical of the 32 bit. Also I had problems but after the Wolfram has responded me I have thought about not entrusting me as than the system administrator and you know what I have discovered? what a the limitation of my test (if we maintain there within the 2^31 and we always transform the integers with N []] it is not responsibility of Mathematica but of the operating system and conflicts of various kind. I have personally tried Mathematica 5.2 +Linux (64) on a home system from me prepared carefully (512 KB RAM + AMD64) and I have succeeded in completing the calculation. Then the guilt is not of Mathematica 5.2 Attention that for instance, on some operational systems I went to check the file of paging, this was settato to ex to 10 GBs but Mathematica didn't entirely see it Then at the end of the discourse a... Great MATHEMATICA 5.2!!!!!!! ... with the hope that the 2^31 e N[integers] further limitation is removed also I wanted to excuse me with various people among which Paul Abbot, Richard j.Faterma and to also thank particularly way Schoeller and Daniel of the Wolfram Thanks also to you ROB
