COMMENTS

This is the subset of Woodall numbers of prime index. The 9th largest known Woodall prime is in this sequence: 12379*2^12379-1, where 12379 is prime, as found by Wilfrid Keller in 1984. Smaller primes are when p = 2, 3, 751. These numbers can also be semiprime, as when p = 159, 163, or 211 and hard to factor as when n = 349 (108 digits). - Jonathan Vos Post, Nov 19 2004

EXAMPLE

If p=3, 3*2^3 - 1 = 23.

If p=11, 11*2^11 - 1 = 22527.
