cataloguing primes k*42[sup]n[/sup]+1 for k = 1 ~ 15000, n = 1 ~ until i get bored. gotta catch 'em all, as they say.

current progress: n ~ 700

if someone's already done this, pls let me know.

attachments are n = 300 ~ 700 (1 ~ 300 too large to include)

How does it feel to be born yesterday?
These are all searched up to n=200,000 up to k<13372.

[URL]http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/crus/Sierp-conjectures.htm[/URL] and scroll down to 42.

P.S. Good luck with k=13372. Also "fun" to search are k=1, 42 etc... [SPOILER]unless you know how[/SPOILER].

This is not correct!

CRUS is only searching for the least n for any k<13372 where k*42^n+1 is prime. Only the remaining 18 k-values where searched up to n=200k.
