I am an IT specialist working for US Federal Government.

Sine 2009, I was more interested to find the next Mersenne Prime number. I learnt Java programming at workplace and started writing small programs to validate the previously known ones. This validation gave me an opportunity to "predict" the next ones.

Since then, I tried different ways to find the next Mersenne Prime. I even tried various known prime sequences if any of them might be helpful. Suddenly, while I was reading about Euler's formula, something struck my mind.

I came up with a prime sequence, which I used and "predicted around 85 Mersenne Primes". Currently, I submitted one of them in GIMPS.

No idea what formulae might create this prime or was it already known.
