Wagstaff factors
 
Wagstaff factors currently aren't on the Top20's page and was thinking about asking Prof. Caldwell or one of his editors to consider making an [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/top20/home.php"]archivable form[/URL] for Wagstaff Cofactors similar to [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/top20/page.php?id=4"]Mersenne Cofactors[/URL]. I recall there being a list of some ECPP certified factors. On top of that, I might need 2 or 3 extra articles regarding factorizations of 2^n+1, or 2^n±1.



There appears to be a lot of work done over the years regarding Wagstaff numbers so I thought this would be a feasible goal. :smile:


Edit: [URL="https://www.ams.org/journals/mcom/1967-21-097/S0025-5718-67-99898-5/S0025-5718-67-99898-5.pdf"]Here[/URL] is an article to get started. So really, I just need one more article. If no one knows of one, I'll just write it myself.
