 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS If there are no more Fermat primes, then 4294967295 is the last term in the sequence. From Daniel Forgues, Jun 17 2011: (Start) The 31 = 2^5 - 1 terms of this sequence are the nonempty products of distinct Fermat primes. The 5 known Fermat primes are in A019434. Prepending the empty product, i.e., 1, to this sequence gives A004729. The initial term for this sequence is thus a(1) (offset=1), since a(0) should correspond to the omitted empty product, term a(0) of A004729. Rows 1 to 31 of Sierpiński's triangle, if interpreted as a binary number converted to decimal (A001317), give a(1) to a(31).
