GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 2^{82589933}1 (24,862,048 digits) Most odd integers can be written as the sum of a prime and a power of two in at least one way. Ones which cannot are called obstinate numbers. They form an infinite set but are not all that common. The first composite obstinate number is 905. [Ajax]
