I often have to generate Lucas prime numbers so I created this simple online utility that does it for me. It lets you calculate however many Lucas primes or their indexes as you need, starting from any position. It works in the browser and is powered by alien technology from the future.

Lucas Primes in Octal Base
This example sets the starting position to 30 and generates only one Lucas prime number L30 in the octal base. The length of this number is 1110 digits in base-8 but in base-10 its length is 1002 digits.

How Does This Lucas Primes Generator Work?

This Lucas prime number generator works entirely in your browser and is written in JavaScript. There are infinitely many prime numbers but only 64 known Lucas prime numbers. As Lucas numbers that are also prime numbers are so rare, their values get extremely large. Just the 50th Lucas prime consists of almost forty thousand digits. Therefore, this utility uses a previously calculated lookup table of the first 40 values and stores them in the lucas-primes.js script. It uses the lucasPrimes array of unnamed objects with keys prime and index as the data structure to hold the Lucas primes and corresponding Lucas indexes. It then calls the slice() function with start and start + count arguments to get count values starting from the start position (both specified in options) of lucasPrimes array. Then, depending on which option is selected (generate Lucas primes or Lucas indexes), it accesses the prime or index value and changes its base to the one that's specified in options. After all this, it join()s the values together with the separator as an argument.
