Proth primes
While working on GFNs (N=60006150, k=50,000,0002,500,00,000), Markus Tervoonen gathered a huge list of Proth primes (about 40 millions).
If you are interested please leave a message... Luigi

I'm interested. Besides, today I've found one: 305147*2^1030527+1 (310226 digits long) from http://irvinemclean.com/maths/sierpin3.htm . How can I check it for being a Fermat, GF, xGF divisor?

A new prime has been discovered (pending verification) and has 5,269,954 digits.
It is 7 ·6^{ 6772401} + 1 . Although I am doubtful it was checked as a Proth Prime, it might be represented as such It is by far the largest Prime of 2019 and if verified it will rank as #18 in the list of Largest Primes kept by CC Congratulations to Ryan Propper. Edit: A Proth number is restricted to k k>2^{n} N=k2^{n}+1 so I ammend my previous statement. Last fiddled with by rudy235 on 20190910 at 00:15

Congratulations to Ryan Propper.
He really earn this prime: but I cannot even imagine what resources he has. If we make initial sieve , then assume sieve depth, from last prime we have at least 100000 candidates from 2.8M digits and above :) And he process 100000 those candidates in 34 days. Some supercomputer must be behind scene.

He mentioned a few years ago that he had access to a cluster: https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=17690
I imagine he still does.
