COMMENTS

Warning, this comment appears to be false.  N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 17 2019. The first three terms (indices 0, 1 and 2) are the only primes. Indeed, for all n >= 0, a(2n+1) is divisible by 11, a(4n+2) is divisible by 101, a(8n+4) is divisible by 73, a(16n+8) is divisible by 17, a(32n+16) is divisible by 353, a(64n+32) is divisible by 19841, etc.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 03 2018
That comment cannot work when the exponent is a power of two. As an example, it gives no divisor for a(16384) (none is known). It is currently unknown if a(2^31) is prime.  Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Oct 17 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = 10*a(n1)  9 = A011557(n) + 1 = A002283(n) + 2.
