A005479 Prime Lucas numbers (cf. A000032).
(Formerly M2627)
2, 3, 7, 11, 29, 47, 199, 521, 2207, 3571, 9349, 3010349, 54018521, 370248451, 6643838879, 119218851371, 5600748293801, 688846502588399, 32361122672259149, 412670427844921037470771, 258899611203303418721656157249445530046830073044201152332257717521 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Also primes of the form 2*F(k) + F(k+1) or F(k) + 3*F(k+1), where F(k) is a Fibonacci number. - Giovanni Teofilatto, Jun 06 2004

It appears that a(n) is the intersection ( or a subset of the intersection ) of A113192[n], Primes that are the difference of two Lucas numbers and A113188[n], Primes that are the difference of two Fibonacci numbers, excluding A113192[1] = A113188[1] = 2. - Alexander Adamchuk, Aug 06 2006

With reference to the first comment, primes of the form F(k)+F(k+2). - Paolo P. Lava, Jul 19 2012

For n>2 also: Primes which are the sum of four consecutive Fibonacci numbers, a(n) = A153867(n-2), cf. link to SeqFan list (Apr.2014). - M. F. Hasler, Apr 24 2014

Conjectures: 7, 47 and 2207 are the only a(n) mod 10 = 7. They are also the only a(n) values where the Lucas index is not a prime.  See A001606 for the Lucas index values of these primes. See A266587 for the divisibility of Lucas numbers by powers of primes.  - Richard R. Forberg, Mar 24 2016
