A080133 Conjectured number of generalized Fermat primes of the form (n+1)^2^k + n^2^k, with k>0. 2
4, 2, 2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 0, 3, 1, 3, 0, 1 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

Primes that are the sum of consecutive integers (k=0) are excluded. Values of k <= 16 were tested. The sequence A078902 lists some of the generalized Fermat primes. Bjorn and Riesel examined generalized Fermat numbers for n <= 11 and k <= 999.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 4 because there are four known Fermat primes (with k>0): 5, 17, 257, 65537.
