 T. Forbes, "A large pair of twin primes," Math. Comp., 66 (1997) 451455. MR 97c:11111
Abstract:
We describe an efficient integer squaring algorithm (involving the fast Fourier transform modulo F_{8}) that was used on a 486 computer to discover a large pair of twin primes.
[The twin primes 6797727 · 2^{15328}± 1 are found on a 486 microcomputer]
