Can someone check whether (31^(2^20)+1)/2, (31^(2^21)+1)/2, etc. is probable prime or not? Also for other Sierpinski bases with GFN (b^(2^n)+1) or half GFN ((b^(2^n)+1)/2) remain, such as 15 (k=225), 18 (k=18), 22 (k=22), 37 (k=37), 38 (k=1), 40 (k=1600), 42 (k=42), 50 (k=1), 52 (k=52), 55 (k=1), 58 (k=58), 60 (k=60)? What are the true test limit for these GFNs? I know that for all even bases, this test limits must be at least 2^23-1, see http://www.primegrid.com/stats_genefer.php and http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=3980

Why can't you check them yourself?

2. Run it:

Code:
 ./sllr64 -d -t8 -q"(31^131072+1)/2"
Starting probable prime test of (31^131072+1)/2
Using all-complex AVX-512 FFT length 32K, a = 3

31^131072+1)/2 is not prime.  RES64: A26F6DFC06756BFA.
