new candidat for M45
Hello,
I am a french psychologist and, of course, mathemacian "amateur". I think that the exposant of M45 is : 32 58 34 27 I obtained this result by a logic method, without calculus on computer. Please, can you test for me this exposant, because I do not have a suffisant power of calculus on my computer. My proposition can seems strange, I know, but I think indeed it's the good number. I have informed G. Woltman of this result a few weeks ago, but I had no answer. Thanks Regards Cochet

Moved to Miscellaneous Math.
Edit: The number has had an LL test, not prime. Feel free to doublecheck it. Alex Last fiddled with by akruppa on 20070302 at 12:56

If all of these people saying they found Mersenne Primes were correct, we'd probably be at at least M60 by now...

One of our favorite retorts. We know it doesn't make sense, but it kills us.

How did you arrive at this number and does the reason explain why the numbers are in groups of two?
The chances that you're correct and the one LL test already done is minute (the LL test being correct is currently on the order of ~15%, and the current people saying they found one and being correct is 0%), but still...I'm curious as to how you arrived at that exponent.

Hi, cochet !
I check your exponent 32583427 with help of my exact theorem. It can't be M45, unfortunately... Who searches  always will find. I wish to you successful Mersenne hunting! Master Alex, Ukraine
