COMMENTS

The absolute value is relevant only for first two terms, 2^0a(0) = 13 = 2, 2^1a(1) = 25 = 3. According to Goldbach's conjecture, every even number > 2 is the sum of two primes, which implies that for all further terms, a(n) < 2^n.  M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2011

EXAMPLE

n=7, 2^n=128. The smallest terms subtracted from 128 resulting in a prime are: 1,15,19,... Neither 1 nor 15 are primes but 19 is a prime. It gives 109=12819, so q(n)=19.
