We define a socalled Extended Korselt Pseudoprime in the following way: A composite number N is an Extended Korselt Pseudoprime iff for all prime divisors F of (N1) the congruence F^(N1) = 1 mod N holds true. Incidentally the theorem does have at least one practical application: the Lucas Primality test. Owing to the fact that the Lucas method already requires all of the factors of (N1) to be known a priori we can therefore apply the above criterion to efficiently exclude all but the most "resilient" pseudoprimes before moving on to the classical Lucas primality test. ...

Member Joined: Jul 2010 Posts: 83 Thanks: 2  Very funny, smart ass. Anyway I think I was a little rash in posting this (I'm getting old and just tend to think out loud these days). In retrospect I can't see any real justification for associating this with Korselt's theorem per se. Still pretty useful as a precursor to the Lucas primality test though.
