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

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.

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
