it just lists the references we cite on these pages.

Gallot}, title={Distribution of generalized {Fermat} prime numbers}, abstract={Numbers of the form $F_{b,n}=b^{2^n}+1$ are called Generalized Fermat Numbers (GFN). A computational method for testing the probable primality of a GFN is described which is as fast as testing a number of the form $2^m1$. The theoretical distributions of GFN primes, for fixed $n$, are derived and compared to the actual distributions. The predictions are surprisingly accurate and can be used to support Bateman and Horn's quantitative form of ``Hypothesis H'' of Schinzel and Sierpi{\'n}ski. A list of the current largest known GFN primes is included.}, journal= mc, volume={71}, year= 2002, pages={825832}, mrnumber={2002j:11156} }
