I took the list from 20M to 30M from the "Factoring limits" list, which is all those that has no known factor below 2^66 (20M) to 2^68 (30M). There are 587,252 primes from 20M to 30M and of them 369,166 have known factors while 218,086 are in the factoring limit list and have no known factors. I made a small program to test number of factors in p1 for all 587,252 primes and see if there was a difference: Code:
p1 factors A B  2 factors 15617=4.23% 8278=3.80% 3 factors 52822=14.31% 29439=13.50% 4 factors 81916=22.19% 47299=21.69% 5 factors 80449=21.79% 48040=22.03% 6 factors 59649=16.16% 36367=16.68% 7 factors 37016=10.03% 22935=10.51% 8 factors 20575=5.57% 12596=5.78% 9 factors 10774=2,92% 6684=3.06% 10 factors 5394=1.46% 3265=1.50% 11 factors 2571=0.70% 1686=0.77% 12 factors 1280=0.35% 784=0.36% 13 factors 612=0.17% 369=0.17% 14 factors 265=0.07% 169=0.08% 15 factors 127 92 16 factors 57 39 17 factors 28 22 18 factors 7 8 19 factors 5 5 20 factors 0 6 21 factors 1 1 22 factors 1 1 23 factors 1 1  Total 369166(100%) 218086(100%) Last fiddled with by ATH on 20090613 at 19:19

I rearranged a little to show the survival rate of exponents p depending on the number of factors of p1:
Code:
p1 factors #p #survivors #suvival rate  2 factors 23895 8278 0.346 3 factors 82261 29439 0.358 4 factors 129215 47299 0.366 5 factors 128489 48040 0.374 6 factors 96016 36367 0.379 7 factors 59951 22935 0.383 8 factors 33171 12596 0.380 9 factors 17458 6684 0.383 10 factors 8659 3265 0.377 11 factors 4257 1686 0.396 12 factors 2064 784 0.380 13 factors 981 369 0.376 14 factors 434 169 0.389 My hypothesis isn't very convincing, though. By the same argument, 2^{[I]p[/I]}4 and 2^{[I]p[/I]}1 have at most the factor 3 in common, so the number of divisors in p2 (and p3 and p4 etc.) should also affect the probability that Mp is prime.

Combined the categories on the last list even more (the one with all factors of p1 except 1 and p1):
Code:
