COMMENTS

Next term 2^1752 is too large to include.

LINKS

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

EXAMPLE

a(5) is 128 because it is the next power of 2 greater than 16 such that 1 + 2 + 4 + 16 + x is prime.

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 1; a[n_] := Block[{k = a[n - 1] + 1, s = Plus @@ (2^Array[a, n - 1])}, While[ !PrimeQ[s + 2^k], k++ ]; k]; Array[2^a[ # ] &, 9] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 31 2006 *)
