Next term, if it exists, is > 10^125074.  David Wasserman, Aug 13 2004
Since x+y is a factor of x^m+y^m if m is odd, 2^m+3^m is divisible by 2+3=5 unless m is zero or a power of 2. This is similar to Fermat numbers 1+2^m.  Michael Somos, Aug 27 2004
Checked k being powers of two through 2^21. Thus a(5) > 10^2000000. Primes of this magnitude are rare (about 1 in 4.6 million), so chance of finding one is remote with today's computer algorithms and speeds.  Robert Price, Apr 25 2013
If a(5) exists it is greater than 10^16000000. Probably complete.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 29 2013
