An Unusual Operation on a Set of Poulet Numbers Which Conducts to Another Set of Poulet Numbers

Authors: Marius Coman

In this paper I make the following conjecture on Poulet numbers: There exist an infinity of Poulet numbers P2 obtained from Poulet numbers P1 in the following way: let d1, d2, ..., dn be the (not distinct) prime factors of the number P1 – 1, where P1 is a Poulet number; than there exist an infinity of Poulet numbers P2 of the form (d1 + 1)*(d2 + 1)*...*(dn + 1) + 1. Example: for Poulet number P1 = 645 is obtained through this operation Poulet number P2 = 1729 (644 = 2*2*7*23 and 3*3*8*24 + 1 = 1729). Note that from more than one Poulet number P1 can be obtained the same Poulet number P2 (from both 1729 and 6601 is obtained 46657).
