Constants of the form
This paper constructs such formulae for constants of the form for many primes p. This holds for all Gaussian-Mersenne primes and for a larger class of ``generalized Guassian-Mersenne primes''. Finally, connections to Aurifeuillian factorizations are made.
(Concerned with sequence A057429 .)
