COMMENTS

Conjecture: sequence is defined for all n. First unproved n: 286 Prime(286)=1871, up to date, tested up to k=40959, none 2^kPrime(286) is prime.
Primo was used for testing large primes.

EXAMPLE

Prime(1)=2, 2^22 = 2 is prime
Prime(2)=3, 2^33 = 5 is prime
...
Prime(68)=337, 2^791337 is prime.
