As you mentioned, with mfaktc.exe it suffices to set the DWAGSTAFF flag to make it find Wagstaff factors instead of Mersenne factors. So maybe that will work with mmff.exe as well, and it might be possible to find a largeish factor for W(W(43)). Edit: from looking at the source code, it's not that simple.

The common generalization could be:
Code:
a(n)=polcyclo(h*n,2) for fixed h>0 integer. For h=2 a(a(p))=W(W(p)) if p and W(p)=(2^p+1)/3 is prime. And you can see this for h>2 also. Or you can even drop the n=p requirement (ofcourse in this case a(n)!=M(n) for h=1 etc.), note that we can see a(n)=prime or a(a(n))=prime for composite n values also.

However, there are no known n such that Phi(n,2) is composite but Phi(Phi(n,2),2) is prime, also no known n such that Phi(n,2) is composite but Phi(2*Phi(n,2),2) is prime Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 20190626 at 19:51

Shhhhhh.... How dare you! You are arguing with the inventor of the Double Wagstaff primes. No one thought of that before, and now someone finally has.

hi,
mmff does not (yet) run with nvidia turing cards

Exponents 31, 61, 89, 107, 127 for double Mersennes and Exponents <= 223 for Fermat numbers. Largest bit level it can test depends on the exponent (see lines 356455 of mfaktc.c in the source of mmff).
