      Dear All,

      Are there any primes of the form 10^(2^k)+1 known for k>1 ?

      Yours, Mike H...

        Yves' page says none through k=20; note that k=21 is reserved to be
        tested under the alias (10^2)^(2^19)

        (Unless Proth specifically avoids testing bases which are perfect
        squares, which I behavior I didn't observe with Proth 6.7).

          Sorry - that was a careless typo on my part. k=20 itself has already
          been tested twice (once by myself, in fact, unless my math is again
          off).
