The Prime Pages keeps a list of the 5000 largest known primes, plus a few each of certain selected archivable forms and classes. These forms are defined in this collection's home page. This page is about one of those forms. Comments and suggestions requested.

(up) Definitions and Notes

The Fibonacci numbers can be defined as follows:
u1 = u2 = 1 and un+1 = un + un-1 (n > 2).
It is easy to show that un divides unm (see primitive part of a Fibonacci number).

In the same way we defined a Mersenne cofactor, we define a Fibonacci cofactor to be a proper divisor of a Fibonacci number with a prime index.
