Some new Generalized Cullen and Woodall primes
(offtopic) It looks like PrimeGrid found either a Cullen or a Woodall.
We will likely see it posted in a couple days. The n is apparently going to be even (in n*b^{n} +/ 1, and n >> 17,000,000, so  more than a 5 million digiter). Super! P.S. Well, this is a generalized Cullen ...slightly less exciting  but still very cool.

I am looking forward to their publication of their new top 20 prime.

It is actually 3,921,539 digits (rank 21) and is being tested at UTM now. The newly discovered prime is 2805222*25^2805222+1
Serge played a part in this by noting that n*b^n+1 can be tested quicker by testing n*(sqrt(b))^(2*n)+1, by over 10% when using the LLR program.

It becomes the largest Generalized Cullen superseding the one discovered last year in March that had 2,913,785 digits. http://www.primegrid.com/download/gc411806676.pdf Last fiddled with by rudy235 on 20190904 at 00:51

A generalized Woodall is on its way, too. (and it is a nearquasirepdigit, too.)
There could be a couple more in the bag  over a week or so.

It is the largest Generalized Woodall and with 4125441 digits it is the Third Prime with more than 4 million Digits (and < than 5M) Congratulations to Ryan and Serge
