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*2^764421 [N+1, BrillhartLehmerSelfridge] Running N+1 test using discriminant 3, base 1+sqrt(3) Calling BrillhartLehmerSelfridge with factored part 99.98% 65537*2^764421 is prime!
