to 1000 and p up to 10000. But I didn't know that he had almost
terminated this work and that he also had in fact certified all these
PRP with primo.
Great job !
It would be interesting to have a table of all these primes. I would
like to check whether my statements are compatible with Mike's result
BTW, Mike : does this titanic work reveals some interesting (non
trivial) properties for this form of numbers ?
