 2013-05-16, 01:05 #1 miket   May 2013 32 Posts Prime abc conjecture b == (a-1)/(2^c) Prime numbers generated by the prime abc conjecture when c=4: suppose a is positive, odd and not a multiple of 3 and b is the cycle length of a as defined below. Then if b == (a-1)/(2^c) for some positive integer c then a is prime. The cycle length of 2n-1 is OEIS A179382(n). Example: 11 = 5*2^1+1 11 (1,3, 7, 9, 5) Prime numbers generated by the prime abc conjecture when c=4,see OEIS A225759.

You said:

1 - if a is a positive odd
2 - and b = A179382, c>0
3 - then the possibility of a is prime approaches 1 as a approaches infinity.

Did you mean that, as a grows, the possibility that a is prime approaches 1?
In that case, what is the use of A179382?
