it just lists the references we cite on these pages.

Pomerance}, title={A Search for {Wieferich} and {Wilson} Primes}, abstract={An odd prime $p$ is called a {\it Wieferich prime} if $$2^{p1} \equiv 1 \pmod{p^2};$$ alternatively, a {\it Wilson prime} if $$(p1)!\equiv 1 \pmod{p^2}.$$ To date the only known Wieferich primes are $p=1093$ and $3511$, while the only known Wilson primes are $p=5, 13$, and $563$. We report that there exist no new Wieferich primes $p\lt 4\times 10^12$, and no new Wilson primes $p\lt 5\times 10^8$. It is elementary that both defining congruences above hold merely $\pmod{p}$, and it is sometimes estimated on heuristic grounds that the ''probability'' that $p$ is Wieferich (independently: that $p$ is Wilson) is about $1/p$. We provide some statistical data relevant to occurrences of small values of the pertinent Fermat and Wilson quotients $\pmod{p}$.}, journal= mc, volume= 66, year= 1997, pages={433449}, number= 217 , mrnumber={97c:11004} }
