GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 2^{82589933}1 (24,862,048 digits) If we place 11 in the formula 2^p1, we get the composite Mersenne number 2047, but if we place 11 in the formula (2^p+1)/3 [p is an odd prime], we get the prime number 683. 683 = prime(6*8*3)  6*8*3. Note that the prime 683 is the smallest number greater than one with this property. Note that the next such number is also prime.
