COMMENTS

All a(n), except a(2) = 5, are of the form (2^p + 1)/3 - the Wagstaff primes A000979[n] = {3,11,43,683,2731,43691,174763,...}.

Indices of prime Jacobsthal numbers are listed in A107036[n] = {3,4,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,31,43,61,...}.

For n>1 A107036[n] = A000978[n] Numbers n such that (2^n + 1)/3 is prime. - Alexander Adamchuk, Oct 10 2006
