Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A014233 Smallest odd number for which Miller-Rabin primality test on bases <= n-th prime does not reveal compositeness. 3
2047, 1373653, 25326001, 3215031751, 2152302898747, 3474749660383, 341550071728321, 341550071728321, 3825123056546413051, 3825123056546413051, 3825123056546413051 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Note that some terms are repeated.

Same as A006945 except for first term.

a(12) > 2^64.  Hence the primality of numbers < 2^64 can be determined by asserting strong pseudoprimality to all prime bases <= 37 (=prime(12)). Testing to prime bases <=31 does not suffice, as a(11) < 2^64 and a(11) is a strong pseudoprime to all prime bases <= 31 (=prime(11)). - Joerg Arndt, Jul 04 2012
