Abstract

We have already encountered several special kinds of primes, for example, those which are Fermat numbers, or Mersenne numbers (see Chapter 2). Now I shall discuss other families of primes, among them the regular primes, the Sophie Germain primes, the Wieferich primes, the Wilson primes, the prime repunits, the primes in second-order linear recurring sequences.
