Hi! can anyone please explain what covering does???

I plugin following numbers:

Code:
104
2
-1
500000
3 5 13
Checking k*2^n-1 sequence for exponent=104, bound for primes in the covering set
=500000, bound for k is 3
Examining primes in the covering set: 3,5,17,8191,2731,53,157,1613
And their orders: 2,4,8,13,26,52,52,52
Base = 104
2 = exponent
-1 = Riesel
500000 = k ??
??

Thank you!
