a(n) is prime for n = {3, 5, 17, 157} = A056826(n) Primes p such that (p^p + 1)/(p + 1) is a prime. Prime a(n) are {7, 521, 45957792327018709121, ...}. Bisection of a(n) is Sierpinski quotient a(2n-1) = A124899(n) = (2n-1)^(2n-1) + 1)/(2n) = A014566(2n-1)/(2n). - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 12 2006

This is related to the dimension of the primitive middle cohomology of Dwork hypersurfaces x1**n+x2**n+...+xn**n=n*psi*x1*x2*...*xn. [F. Chapoton, Dec 11 2009]
