The fastest primality test for Fermat numbers.
The test states that for n > 2,
F(n) is prime iff 5^((F(n)1)/4) == sqrt(F(n)1) (mod F(n)). <Thread posted on April 01, 2011. Last fiddled with by Arkadiusz on 20110401 at 20:20

so you say: 5^(2^(2^n2)) mod (2^(2^n)+1) = 2^((2^n)/2) according to my research. I'll have to think on this more, I'm not that advanced. Last fiddled with by science_man_88 on 20110401 at 21:38

Code:
(13:56)>for(n=1,100,print1(isprime(F(n))",")) 1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0, *** isprime: user interrupt after 15,468 ms. (13:57)>for(n=1,100,print1(5^((F(n)1)/4)%(F(n)) == sqrt(F(n)1)",")) 0,0,1,1, *** _^_: user interrupt after 12,782 ms. it fails twice in the first 4.
