This beats an idea of simply doing 10^999999 + k*10^(333333-m) ± 1 with m very small. Such a prime would be simpler to test than Serge Batalov's, but not quite as close to 10^999999. /JeppeSN

MM82589933 = 2^(2^82589933-1) - 1 is a prime.

Now please prove me wrong - any prime factor of that number would be the largest prime ever found.

How? For example, 7 divides 70, but s(7) = 2*7^2 - 1 = 97 does not divide s(70) = 2*70^2 - 1 = 9799. Clearly enough, 97 divides 9797, hence 97 leaves a remainder of 2 when dividing into 9799?

Note that 2^16777216 + 1 = F(24) is the 24th Fermat number. No factors are known. You are probably searching for one.

So it is n^k + k^n where either 1 < k ≤ n or 1 = k = n-1.

It is not really important if we include that exceptional case, or not.
