# Euler Number Prime

An Euler number prime is an Euler number such that the absolute value is prime (the absolute value is needed since takes on alternating positive and negative values for even indices). Note that these numbers are distinct from a different type of prime known as Euler primes.

The first few Euler number primes occur for , 6, 38, 454, 510, ... (OEIS A103234), corresponding to 5, , , ... (OEIS A092823).

As of February 2022, the largest known prime Euler number is , which has 1062 decimal digits and was proven to be prime by D. Broadhurst in 2002.

The following table summarizes searches for larger Euler number primes, of which there are none others up to a limit of at least .
