lucas lehmer outstretch
I was told to post on the forum instead of annoying CRGreathouse. so here I am
basically i wan't to find a way to easily connect certain p values with s in a new way. s^{2}2 =k*2^{p}1 (s^{2}2)/k + 1 = 2^{p} p=log_{2}((s^{2}2)/k + 1) this works for s(n1) can we figure out a generalisation for any amount of n change ? if so can we apply it easily and can anyone get the log_{2}() part reduced more ?

There's an arithmetic error in your post.
I don't understand your goal here. What does "for any amount of n change" mean? What does "get the log_{2}() part reduced more" mean?

s^{2}2 =k*(2^{p}1) =correction
(s^{2}2)/k =2^{p}1 ((s^{2}2)/k)+1 =2^{p} log_{2}(((s^{2}2)/k)+1) =p Last fiddled with by science_man_88 on 20100711 at 16:15

the n change part means for any s within the sequence (so for 2^51 instead of using the 5th one in the sequence; n=4 as n=0 for the first; I could try and use a lower number.) the reason a wanted the log_{2}(((s22)/k)+1) reduced is to get a lower comparison of s and p. like p*k isn't that big compared with k*2^p1 same idea in reducing the log.

log_{2}(((s^4  4*s^2 + 2)/k)+1) = p is the next one up. I can continue this but the equations get longer and without getting a lower fraction to go with it works out to log(Mersenne number(p) +1) which isn't very helpful.
