Succinct proofs of primality for the factors of some Fermat numbers,
Mathematics of Computation 38 (1982), 253-255.
We give short and easily verified proofs of primality for the factors of the
Fermat numbers F5, F6, F7
The main result is a simpler proof of primality of the larger
factor of F8 than is given in
Proofs of primality of the factors of F9,
may be found in .
