How do we calculate the weight for a form (k*b^n+c)/gcd(k+c,b-1) for fixed integers k >= 1, b >= 2, c != 0, gcd(k,c) = 1, gcd(b,c) = 1. I have a research that whether the form (k*b^n+c)/gcd(k+c,b-1) can contain a prime (there are special cases, such as (27*8^n+1)/7, (1*8^n-1)/7, (1*16^n-1)/15, and (4*16^n+1)/5, they can contain only one prime (because of the algebra factors), thus the weight is also 0, besides, there are also cases without covering set or algebra factors, but cannot contain a prime, such as 8*128^n+1 and 32*128^n+1) (I know that the dual forms have the same weight) Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 2020-02-14 at 12:37
