A primality test for Fermat numbers faster than Pépin's test ?

  1. Oct 26, 2004 #1
    Hi,

    I've published on my site the following paper:
    "A primality test for Fermat numbers faster than Pépin's test ?
    Conjecture and bits of history"

    It is a kind of investigation about the history of Mathematics.

    http://tony.reix.free.fr/Mersenne/P...rmatNumbers.pdf

    It is the follow-up of a previous thread on this forum:
    "I need a proof for this binomial property."

    You are invited in providing comments and proposals in order to build a proof, leading to a 25 % faster test for Fermat numbers.

    Regards,

    Tony
