For natural numbers k,n, with k < 2^n, if the following are all primes: k*2^n+1 k*2^n1 k*2^(n+1)+1 k*2^(n+1)1 2^n+k 2^nk 2^(n+1)+k 2^(n+1)k then k*2^n+1 is called an octoproth. It can be shown that if k*2^n+1 is an octoproth then k = 15 (mod 30) and if n != 1 (mod 3) then k = 105 mod 210 Last fiddled with by Greenbank on 20060111 at 16:43

The original source
If we are being pernickety, the concept was first mooted by me on Yahoo on Jan 26th 2004 when I called them "combo chains"
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/primen...6?viscount=100 Actually, I am sure others may well have thought about this before, and just never got it written down on the internet. But I certainly never got any response saying that the numbers had been researched previously. Regards Robert Smith
