Abstract: This paper continues the work begun by D. Shanks and myself in [1] where certain cubic recurrences were used to give a very strong primality test. A complete characterization of the pseudoprimes for this test is given in terms of the periods of the corresponding sequences. Then these results are used to produce various types of pseudoprimes. A discussion of open problems is included.
