COMMENTS

Friedlander and Iwaniec prove that there are an infinite number of primes of the form a^2+b^4 (A028916). They speculate that the a^2+b^6 case can be proved by similar methods.

EXAMPLE

73 = 3^2 + 2^6

MATHEMATICA

maxN=10000; lst={}; Do[p=i^2+j^6; If[p<maxN&&PrimeQ[p], AppendTo[lst, p]], {i, maxN^(1/2)}, {j, maxN^(1/6)}]; lst=Union[lst]

PROG

(PARI) list(lim)=my(v=List([2]), b6, t); lim\=1; for(b=1, sqrtnint(lim-1, 6), b6=b^6; forstep(a=1+b%2, sqrtint(lim-b6), 2, if(isprime(t=a^2+b6), listput(v, t)))); Set(v) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 18 2017
