i.e. what is it?

It is the number that does not end in a zero for all bases up to 2^77232917-1

This is [$]M50[$] (Mersenne prime, not the highway). I can compute it but it is 120 km long, I need to find a way to store it. In the meantime, here is [$]M33[$]..Takes a few seconds to compute.

[$]M50[$] is easy to store & display! As a 24-bit RGB TIFF image, it would be a square or rectangle of white (RGB[255,255,255]) with a bit more than 3.2 megapixels and cover less than half of a 4k-format monitor. It's almost small enough to fit on my iPhone's screen and definitely fits on my iPad's screen.

TIFF != integer. TIFF can't do algebra.

ASCII string != integer. And unicode is even worse!

Strings on consoles are a horribly inefficient display format -- probably on the order of at least 5 kbits of display memory to show only 3 bits of data.

It's just for testing. I'll optimise it later
Here is [$]M40[$]

M50 is easy.

Just write "1" 77,232,917 times.

Esatto.
Non possiamo fisicamente riportarlo in questo articolo, perché è composto da oltre 23milioni di cifre, ma è stato scoperto il più alto numero primo di cui attualmente siamo a conoscenza. Dal momento che questo problema nel trascriverlo è comune a tutti coloro che non possiedono strumenti specialistici, esso è noto più semplicemente come M77232917.

$$2^{77232917}-1\neq 10223\times 2^{31172165}+1$$

io capisco tutto
