S_N cycles in LL done on composite M(p)
Hi,
when LL test is carried out on a composite Mersenne number M(p) then S_N values will start repeating with a certain cycle length, e.g. for p=11 consecutive 60 S_N values will repeat, for p=29 cycle length is 252, and for p=47 it is 20338900. Where do those cycles come from ? (I don't have a degree in mathematics so please excuse my noobness :) ) Thx,
