Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

There are only 25 such primes below 4^1000. Terms beyond a(15) are too large to be displayed here: The sequence should be extended by listing the corresponding n-values in A091515. - M. F. Hasler, May 15 2008

Is there an explanation for the following observed pattern? Between groups of primes of roughly the same size, there is a gap of about the magnitude of these primes, i.e. the size roughly doubles (e.g. after the 16-17 digit primes, there is a 34 digit prime, then an 78 digit prime and some others up to 105 digits, then some 200-250 digit primes, then approximately 500 digits...). - M. F. Hasler, May 15 2008

FORMULA

a(k) = 4^A091515(k)-2^(A091515(k)+1)-1 = (2^A091515(k)-1)^2-2. - M. F. Hasler, May 15 2008
