COMMENTS

Minoli defined the sequences and concepts that follow in the 1980 IEEE paper below: - Sequence m (n,t) = (n^t) - (n-1) for t=2 to infinity 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^2 - 2*n+1. This sequence related to sequences: A014232 and A014224; A135535 and A059266. These numbers play a role in the context of hyperperfect numbers.
