Descriptive Data: (report abuse)

In 1963 Gillies discovered the three Mersenne primes 211213-1, 29941-1 and 29689-1 [Gillies64] during the checkout of the Illiac-II supercomputer for which he designed the control pipelining. The primality testing algorithm exercised nearly every circuit in the Illiac-II. Gillies died of a rare virus in 1975, at age 47.
