	title={{\'E}douard {Lucas} and primality testing},
	publisher= jws,
	year= 1998,
	volume= 22,
	address= NY,
	series={Canadian Math. Soc. Series of Monographs and Adv. Texts},
	annote={From the preface: "The main purpose of this book is to show how the modern
		methods of primality testing have evolved since the time of Lucas. This
		will be done by tracing the refinement of Lucas' ideas concerning this
		subject. It will be seen that, like the evolution of today's biological
		species, modern primality tests have derived from a complicated process
		of diversification and selection. However I must admit to having intention,
		and that is to kindle further interest in the problem of primality." This
		excellent book, written with a deep historical perspective, does an excellent
		job of ballancing the desire to write for general audience, while still
		providing the basic proofs.}
