Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

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.
