Mersenne Conjecture
Hello,
My conjecture is : Let be an Mersennenumber, and a is an element from (1) > (2) This means, that if (1) is true, than is (2) also true. It is easy to show that ? My idea to do this with is prime, was the following: When is prime, when the Elements with the form are the only ones, that have order of and therefore:  But the only solution to this is 1: > > So can not be the order of a, because a is 1. I have searched with google many sites, but could not find the answer to this "problem". I hope that anybody can help me with the conjecture. kind regards, sascha

(1) implies (2) for all if and only if does not divide .
In other words, you need to prove either of the two statements: * if is Wieferich prime then is not prime; * if is prime then is not a Wieferich prime. It may be hard to prove.

Thanks maxal,
Now I see the connection to the Wieferich primes and I feel confident now that this is hard to solve.

Do you have a proof to this conjecture (without inclding the 2^{p}1 prime number option)?

What do you mean by element ( I tought element is a member in a set).
Do you have an example for an element of a merssene number?

Silverman,
So he just mean a factor of 2^{p}1. BTW: I started reading "solved and unsloved problems in mathematics", I really enjoy it and it is really readable for my level.

Henry,
I do read it, it isn't easy and it takes me time to understand. When I say "enjoy", I mean that it is really fun for me to learn more mathematics, I love mathematics, so why won't I enjoy reading a math book? I'm not going to read a book if I'm going to be bored of it..

Explanation of my conjecture.
Hello ,
I wrote an PDFdocument to show why I am interested that "my" conjecture is true. Sorry that it took so long time ;( In this PDF there might be some "new" Mersenne Properties, but I am not really shure if they are not well known. So I post this document here, in hope that the information might be usefull for someone. If I did mathematical mistakes in the document I would really be glad if you can say what I did false. ( I know there are plenty of englishgrammarmistakes ;) Please excuse my bad english) kind regards, Sascha Last fiddled with by sascha77 on 20100425 at 23:47
