Happy Prime Year MMXI!
Still about 1h20min until new year here in Denmark, but I'm posting before the fireworks.
2011 is a prime year! 2^{2011}1 has 2 factors: http://www.mersenne.org/report_expon...&B1=Get+status 2011 = 7^{2}+21^{2}+39^{2} = 9^{2}+29^{2}+33^{2} = 9^{2}+9^{2}+43^{2} = 21^{2}+27^{2}+29^{2} 2011 = 2^{8}+3^{3}+12^{3} 3 natural disasters "predicted" for 2011 in various fiction: http://www.virtuescience.com/2011.html Other real world upcoming events: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011 http://www.imdb.com/year/2011/

Unfortunately, 2010 was a dry year, in the context of new Mersenne primes. Let's hope that 0b11111011011 will really be a "prime" year!

I'm not sure exactly what math is behind it, and it can probably vary depending on the program used to find the other factor, but some sort of PRP test is (AFAIK) most commonly used to show whether a cofactor in factoring (including Mersennes) is PRP or composite. A PRP test of such a small number is quite easy. PARI/GP can do it (with ispseudoprime; I think it would see that it's a base 2 RabinMiller PRP, then see that it's not a Lucas PRP) in ~50 ms on my computer.

David PS Does PRP = "Probably Prime"? If so, what does the R stand for  "robably"? Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20110101 at 16:12

[QUOTE=davieddy;244241]PS Does PRP = "Probably Prime"?
It means "probable prime", which is a technical term meaning a number which passes one of certain designated tests. It does not mean "probably prime". 1105 is a probable prime to many bases. (It's a Carmichael number.) But it's not probably prime. It's definitely composite.
