Table of n, a(n) for n=1..9.

EXAMPLE

1^2 + 2^1 = 3 and 2^3 + 3^2 = 17 are the primes corresponding to the first two terms. The next four terms correspond to probable primes of 155, 870, 2487 and 3678 decimal digits.

I proved the primality of the primes corresponding to a(3) and a(4). [Charles R Greathouse IV, Jan 12 2012]
