- In Crandall/Pomerance "Prime Numbers" on the pages 381-382

you can find a longish polynomial. The last pair of parenthesis

on page 381 seem not to be necessary, i.e. ...-(x+c*u^2)...

could be written shorter as -x-c*u^2, unless there is a typo

somewhere.

Has someone checked this polynomial?

Congratulations to Hans for spotting the first error in C&P. It ought to be
