    The classical Mersenne problem has been a stimulating challenge to number theorists and computer scientists for many years. After briefly reviewing some of the natural settings in which this problem appears as a special case, we introduce an analogue of the Mersenne problem in higher rank, in both a classical and an elliptic setting. Numerical evidence is presented for both cases, and some of the difficulties involved in developing even a heuristic understanding of the problem are discussed.
