2^(3*m)=(2^3)^m
(2^3)^m=8^m 8^m=(7+1)^m Okay, following it so far... (7+1)^m==(0+1)^m mod 7 How is the 7 eliminated so we know that 8^m==1^m? 1^m=1 so 2^(3*m)==1 mod 7 And the rest makes sense, so it's just that one part I'm confused on.

Think of it like this: (7+1) == (1 mod 7) and (0+1) == (1 mod 7) therefore x represents the same integer 0<=x<=6 in both of the following: (7+1)^m == (x mod 7) and (0+1)^m == (x mod 7) therefore: (7+1)^m == (0+1)^m mod 7 therefore: 8^m == 1^m mod 7 Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20090112 at 03:11

If we compute (7+1)^m = 7^m+m*7^(m1)*1+ ... +m*7*1^(m1)+1^m all terms except 1^m contain a power of 7 greater than 0. So we can say that (7+1)^m is a multiple of 7 plus 1. More generally : (a*n+b)^m == b^m mod n. You could lookup some more explanation about modular arithmetics... Jacob

From an unrelated PFGW search:
204912863*2^333332147 is composite: RES64: 69ED3420123456F2 (1.9872s+0.0003s) Not that much for a 2s test.

http://www.primenumbers.net/Renaud/eng/fermat1.html it explains why lots of numbers have the same residues time to repeat my question: does anyone know of a prp program that can display the full residue not just the RES64? i could then use it to find prps hopefully i expect the answer to be no but i would quite like a response

I've searched all my residues for the sequences of at least 6 digits / letters of the same kind:
Code:
1515*2^6183181 is not prime. LLR Res64: 5461D351111114AF > 6 x 1 25*2^6958671 is not prime. LLR Res64: 7D382AE72222229E > 6 x 2 59*2^16251321 is not prime. LLR Res64: E3CAA3333333171E > 7 x 3 736320585*2^7158451 is not prime. LLR Res64: 9604AF6744444483 > 6 x 4 2*3^1846021 is not prime. RES64: 214E3DFFA875B519. OLD64: B59B17A74A777777 > 6 x 7 736320585*2^933181 is not prime. LLR Res64: 18106436ABBBBBBA > 6 x B

Just now I was doing an offthewall search for MooMoo's "BEEF15BAD" residue with very small numbers (a fixed n search for k=31G, n=5, k*2^n+1), when I noticed a very weird pattern:
Code:
168195*2^5+1 = 5382241 is prime! (trial divisions) 168221*2^5+1 = 5383073 is prime! (trial divisions) 168225*2^5+1 = 5383201 is prime! (trial divisions) 168231*2^5+1 = 5383393 is prime! (trial divisions) 168239*2^5+1 = 5383649 is prime! (trial divisions) 168245*2^5+1 = 5383841 is prime! (trial divisions) 168251*2^5+1 = 5384033 is prime! (trial divisions) 168269*2^5+1 = 5384609 is prime! (trial divisions) 168281*2^5+1 = 5384993 is prime! (trial divisions) 168293*2^5+1 = 5385377 is prime! (trial divisions) 168305*2^5+1 = 5385761 is prime! (trial divisions) I'm sure there's a simple mathematical explanation for what I'm seeing here. You know, though I hate to sound "crankish"...if there is a simple mathematical proof that all k*2^5+1 are prime, then this could lead to a very simple way to find a 100 million digit prime that would qualify for the EFF prize! Heck on spending 3+ years per number searching 100 million digit numbers through GIMPS when you can just find one this way. (Of course, I'm sure there's something I'm missing that would preclude this, otherwise someone would have won the prize by now.) Edit: I'm seeing this on k*2^7+1 as well.
