Generalized Cullen/Woodall twin primes

• A few months ago, I started to search for twin primes that would be both generalized Cullen and generalized Woodall numbers. This means n*a^n+1 and n*a^n-1.

A few months ago, I started to search for twin primes that would be
both generalized Cullen and generalized Woodall numbers. This means
n*a^n+1 and n*a^n-1.
The search was conducted with n from 1 to 10000, and a from 2 to 50.
After a first sieving with Multisieve, only the sets(GC(a,n),GW(a,n))
without small factors have been PRP'ed with PFGW.
Of course some existing primes have been found again, but there are
also new results.
Twin GC/GW : 84*45^84 +/-1
GW :
115*48^115-1 123*20^123-1
132*35^132-1 390*41^390-1
525*48^525-1 795*22^795-1
850*42^850-1 1137*4^1137-1
1568*9^1568-1 4100*36^4100-1
7342*42^7342-1

I hope this will help filling in existing tables on the subject.

• None of these are new, but it is nice to have confirmation of these numbers. I have noted that 84*45^84+/-1 is twin in the list maintained at
