@article{DG2000,
	author={H. Dubner and Y. 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 $2^m-1$.
		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.},
