COMMENTS

Note that 65537 = 2^16 + 1 is the largest known Fermat prime. All terms have been proved prime. Proof for the largest: PFGW Version 1.2.0 for Windows [FFT v23.8] Primality testing 65537*2^76442-1 [N+1, Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge] Running N+1 test using discriminant 3, base 1+sqrt(3) Calling Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge with factored part 99.98% 65537*2^76442-1 is prime! (101.6260s+0.0044s)

No more terms up to 92000.
