PRP test largely on input number
Hi,
It's been ages since I devoted some attention to prime numbers. After a year or so since I came to accept that the cause was hopeless, I'm now wondering again about factoring 3^{504206}+1, having discovered last March that 3^{504206}+2 is a PRP. Thanks to some people on here, I found some factors of 3^{504206}+1. Some smallish ones are known to be composite, but there is this one here: http://factordb.com/index.php?id=1100000001124718606 Which is of unknown status. If it is composite, fine. If its a PRP, I could then dedicate some time to trying to prove its primality, thus prove the primality of my original PRP. Any suggestions on suitable software for PRPtesting the large factor linked above? LLR won't allow such a complicated input.

Congratulations!
according to PFGW: Code:
.....3315861 is 3PRP! (1388.4907s+0.6161s)

Note, you have to choose a PRP base other than 3, since that will give you a false positive here. You could choose 2 or 5, for instance: Code:
./pfgw64 b5 help Enter expression followed by carriage return: (3^504206+1)*(3^226+1)*(3^194+1)*(3^46+1)/(3^21922+1)/(3^5198+1)/(3^4462+1)/628417430425585476026210 PFGW Version 3.8.3.64BIT.20161203.x86_Dev [GWNUM 28.6] (3^504206+1)*(3^....0425585476026210 is composite: RES64: [07271415C222E58C] (780.3876s+0.0099s)

Well, quite. I am aware of this. But in a series of highly improbable possibilities, if this had been PRP I'd have subtracted 1 from it and attempted to factor that number, in the hope that I would then get some large PRP factor, and so on. Not likely, but worth spending an hour or two looking into. Thanks to both of you for running it in PFGW. Are you running OpenPFGW?

I am running pfgw64 from pfgw_linux_3.8.3_20170121.zip
I don't recall where I downloaded it, but based on this forum thread, it probably did come from the OpenPFGW archive at sourceforge

I stand corrected. In base 5:
Code:
....36795483315861 is composite: RES64: [07271415C222E58C] (1229.6702s+0.6114s) https://sourceforge.net/projects/openpfgw/ Last fiddled with by a1call on 20190317 at 19:24

When I try the same input, I get: Code:
Illegal instruction (core dumped) Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

3^504205+1 does have a few algebraic factors, but not nearly as many as the other one.
