Put on this thread whatever you know about the history of the search of Double Mersennes.
I will check from time to time, and insert the most interesting items on the website. Lugi

Private communication from Landon Curt Noll
I just read this sentence: "In private correspondence with Chris K. Caldwell, I announced that C_{5} = 2^{(2[sup]127}1)[/sup]1 has no prime factor < 5 * 10^{51}."
The links are: http://www.isthe.com/chongo/bio.html#publications http://www.isthe.com/chongo/tech/math/prime/index.html Here is Chris Caldwell publication about his claim: http://primes.utm.edu/mersenne/index.html#c Is there any official paper about it? I tried to email Mr. Noll asking for some more infos... Luigi Last fiddled with by ET_ on 20120914 at 23:50

No. The definition should say nothing about primality. Mersenne numbers Mp are defined for all p, not only for primes. Later on, there is usually a discussion about when a mersenne number can be prime and when it can not, but primality of p should not be required in the definition. A double mersenne number is just a mersenne number whose exponent is also a mersenne number.
