COMMENTS

2^n+p^n is prime if n=0;or n=1 and p is a smaller of twin primes; or n=2 and 4+p^2 is prime; or n=3 and 8+p^3 is prime etc. Several conditions have to be satisfied to get a modest number of terms...
n must be zero or a power of two. Checked n being powers of two through 2^22. Thus a(5) > 10^5800000. Primes of this magnitude are rare (about 1 in 13.4 million), so chance of finding one is remote with today's computer algorithms and speeds.  Robert Price, May 02 2013

EXAMPLE

For n=4, p=2^4+5^4=641, so p can be prime even when the exponent is not a prime.
