A069179 Least number X such that for each k in (0 to n-1), 2^k*X-1 and 2^k*X+1 are primes. That is, there are N twin primes, each the "double" of the previous. 1
4, 6, 211050, 253680, 41887255410, 73768891456260 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

a(6)=73768891456260 might be called a(6.5), since 64*a(6)+1 is prime. But 64*a(6)-1 is 167*1021*44533*621769, alas.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 211050 because 1*a(3)-1, 1*a(3)+1, 2*a(3)-1, 2*a(3)+1, 4*a(3)-1 and 4*a(3)+1 are all prime.
