### Abstract

this paper, we aim at presenting the most recent results achieved in the theory of pseudoprime numbers. First of all, we make a list of all pseudoprime varieties existing so far. This includes Lucas-pseudoprimes and the generalization to sequences generated by integer polynomials modulo N , elliptic pseudoprimes. We discuss the making of tables and the consequences on the design of very fast primality algorithms for small numbers. Then, we describe the recent work of Alford, Granville and Pomerance, in which they prove that there
