EXAMPLE

Primeform reports 2281 as the factor from ( (P(38321)*P(38322))2+1)/2; this is M17.

MATHEMATICA

PrimeFactors[n_] := Flatten[ Table[ # [[1]], {1}] & /@ FactorInteger[n]]; a = {}; Do[l = PrimeFactors[((Prime[n]*Prime[n + 1])^2 + 1)/2]; If[ Position[a, l[[1]]] == {}, AppendTo[a, l[[1]]]], {n, 2, 127}]; a
