Building Pseudoprimes With A Large Number Of Prime Factors
, 1995
"... We extend the method due originally to Loh and Niebuhr for the generation of Carmichael numbers with a large number of prime factors to other classes of pseudoprimes, such as Williams's pseudoprimes and elliptic pseudoprimes. We exhibit also some new Dickson pseudoprimes as well as superstrong Dicks ..."

HigherOrder Carmichael Numbers
 Math. Comp
, 1998
"... . We define a Carmichael number of order m to be a composite integer n such that nthpower raising defines an endomorphism of every Z=nZalgebra that can be generated as a Z=nZmodule by m elements. We give a simple criterion to determine whether a number is a Carmichael number of order m, and w ..."

. We define a Carmichael number of order m to be a composite integer n such that nthpower raising defines an endomorphism of every Z=nZalgebra that can be generated as a Z=nZmodule by m elements. We give a simple criterion to determine whether a number is a Carmichael number of order m, and we give a heuristic argument (based on an argument of Erdos for the usual Carmichael numbers) that indicates that for every m there should be infinitely many Carmichael numbers of order m. The argument suggests a method for finding examples of higherorder Carmichael numbers; we use the method to provide examples of Carmichael numbers of order 2. 1. Introduction A Carmichael number is defined to be a positive composite integer n that is a Fermat pseudoprime to every base; that is, a composite n is a Carmichael number if a n j a mod n for every integer a. Clearly one can generalize the idea of a Carmichael number by allowing the pseudoprimality test in the definition to vary over some...

Abstract. We define a Carmichael number of order m to be a composite integer n such that nthpower raising defines an endomorphism of every Z/nZalgebra that can be generated as a Z/nZmodule by m elements. We give a simple criterion to determine whether a number is a Carmichael number of order m, and we give a heuristic argument (based on an argument of ErdÅ‘s for the usual Carmichael numbers) that indicates that for every m there should be infinitely many Carmichael numbers of order m. The argument suggests a method for finding examples of higherorder Carmichael numbers; we use the method to provide examples of Carmichael numbers of order 2. 1.
