COMMENTS

All primes p whose reciprocals belong to the middle-third Cantor set satisfy an equation of the form 2pK + 1 = 3^n. This sequence is the special case K = 1. See reference. [Christian Salas, Jul 04 2011]

Conjecture: primes p such that sigma(2p+1) = 3*p+1. Sigma(2*a(n)+1) = 3*a(n) +1 holds for all first 9 terms. - Jaroslav Krizek, Sep 28 2014
