<<< 22*22^511+1 is not prime. 22*22^2047+1 is not prime. 22*22^3583+1 is not prime. 22*22^6655+1 is not prime. >>> Are you sure you know what you're doing? Those are 22^n+1, which can only ever be prime if n=2^m for some n, namely generalised Fermat numbers.

18 * 18^n+1 ? and if not, could you please try to explain it to me? (Yea, I'm trying to learn the math behind these projects )

They are also just 18^n+1. Again, they can only be prime if n is a power of 2, and would be Generalised Fermat Numbers. Have a look at Yves Gallot's GFN page for more info.

If you want to sieve the GFN's, srsieve should recognise them as such and use a faster method of sieving as long as only the terms of the form n=2^m+1 appear in the input file. If you start srsieve with the v option it will print a message something like `filtering for primes of the form (2^m)x+1' if it has recognised the sequence as GFN. (If there are nonGFN sequences in the sieve as well then it will still notice the GFN's, but most of the benefit will be lost).

In terms of 22^(2^m)+1, is it possible to figure the odds that at least one value of m will yield a prime for the equation? Since the numbers get big so quickly, I'm thinking it's possible this may be a Sierpinski number that may never be proven, or at least not within my lifetime.
Can anybody do the math and figure the chance that it would or wouldn't yield prime if every single m value could be figured at once for the above equation? Last fiddled with by jasong on 20070113 at 03:05

The chances are quite slim I suspect,
but sieving can be done quite easily. I have started yesterday a sieve for the first 4 numbers left, and that one did 40Mp/sec (now only 3 left since a factor was found for 512k) It will reach the limit of srsieve in about 1 day. If some numbers are left, well... it's getting very hard to test them. I will start a sieve for the next 4 after the first one finishes; that sievespeed is significantly slower (About 7Mp/sec), but will finish in reasonable time too. After that, I think I will let it go.
