 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Related to hyperperfect numbers of a certain form. From Daniel Minoli (daniel.minoli(AT)ses.com), Aug 27 2009: (Start) Minoli defined the sequences and concepts that follow in the 1980 IEEE paper below: - For t=2 to infinity, the sequence m(n,t) = n exp(t) - (n-1) is called a Mersenne Sequence Rooted on n - If n is prime, this sequence is called a Legitimate Mersenne Sequence - Any j belonging to the sequence m(n,t) is called a Generalized Mersenne Number (n-GMN) - If j belonging to the sequence m(n,t) is prime, it is then called a n-Generalized Mersenne Prime (n-GMP). Note: m(n,t) = n*m(n,t-1) + n exp(2) - 2*n+1. These numbers play a role in the context of hyperperfect numbers. (End) The next terms are > 4000. - Vincenzo Librandi, Sep 27 2012 REFERENCES Daniel Minoli, Voice over MPLS, McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, 2002, ISBN 0-07-140615-8 (p.114-134) [From Daniel Minoli (daniel.minoli(AT)ses.com), Aug 27 2009] LINKS J.
