Carol / Kynea half squares

Quote:
For odd b, I suggest ((b^n-1)^2-2)/2 (Carol) and ((b^n+1)^2-2)/2 (Kynea), they are half Carol/Kynea, like the generalized half Fermat.

These are status for both sides for b<=512, searched up to n=1024

((205^3651+1)^2-2)/2 ((205^4133+1)^2-2)/2 ((205^4620+1)^2-2)/2 ((215^12694-1)^2-2)/2 ((319^11276-1)^2-2)/2 ((319^5513-1)^2-2)/2 ((73^1275+1)^2-2)/2 ((73^2004+1)^2-2)/2 etc However, the problem with these half-near-squares is that you will not be able to prove (most of) them. (Take these PRP-1 and PRP+1: there is nothing immediately smooth about them.)
