y^xx^y primes
...I also search PRPs of the form y^xx^y.
I made a webpage to these PRPs, similar to Andrey's page to the y^x+x^y PRPs. You can find the page at primfakt.atw.hu, y^xx^y PRPs exists much more than y^x+x^y PRPs. For example to x= 5000 894 y^xx^y and 426 y^x+x^y PRPs, x=10000 1530 y^xx^y and 787 y^x+x^y PRPs. I have all the y^xx^y PRPs to x=10800, and a few for higher x values. Andrey, Hans or someone else, are you interesting to join me searching the y^xx^y PRPs? Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20160423 at 22:22 Reason: (only the y^xx^y part of the original message)

I remember than the numbers of the form x^yy^x was factorized by Torbjörn Alm some years ago. That's his posting to ggnfs yahoogroup dated 23rd of October, 2005:

I found 2 new PRPs:
7406^12879+12879^7406, 49837 digits, 8335^12882+12882^8335, 50510 digits. Andrey, the file factortable_xyyx_1_100.txt in https://groups.yahoo.com/ neo/groups/ggnfs/files group contains all factorization for x < 101 as in your results.txt. For 100 < x < 151 as in your results2.txt have I nothing found to the y^xx^y numbers. To the y^xx^y PRPs have I nothing new found in the above group, you know y^xx^y PRPs, thats are not on my webpage?

Nothing more than Henri Lifchitz's prptop + factordb.com.

Mark, I also search PRPs of the form y^xx^y.
At http://primfakt.atw.hu/ can you see, which ranges are completed and which are available for searching.

I started sieving for x=11301 to x=12400. Unfortunately I only have one computer that I can run my sieving code on and that is the one with the slowest GPU. Now if I could only talk my wife into letting me get a new 27" iMac...
Down to 650,000 (from nearly 3,000,000) and only sieved to 131,519.

Sieving is done. I have about 400,000 candidates to test. I'm guessing about 40 days of PRP testing, but only after I suspect what I am currently doing.

FYI, I'm making a small change to the PRPNet server code so that server stats use y^xx^y for the  form and x^y+y^x for the + form.

Here are a few PRPs for the minus form: It is complete to x=11400. Still crunching away.
7980^1131711317^7980 5577^1132011320^5577 3638^1132711327^3638 765^1133611336^765 3415^1134211342^3415 2181^1134411344^2181 7707^1134411344^7707 2684^1135511355^2684 2779^1136411364^2779 7287^1136611366^7287 7813^1137211372^7813 243^1138411384^243

I reached x=12,970 and found 1 new PRP:
10821^12968+12968^10821, 52317 digits. Mark the y^xx^y PRPs page is updated, the new PRPs from you and me are on the page now. Hans, the Leyland# to a given (x,y) pair determine you also with a database and a Mathematica program, thank for sharing this. I try to write a program in C# to determine the "Leyland#" to the y^xx^y PRPs.
