COMMENTS

Terms are squares at only(?) three values of n = 3, 6, 4072: corresponding terms are 6^2, 13^2, and 15735^2.

Terms are prime at many values of n; at n = 1, 4, 16, 18, 22, 36, 40, 44, 52 they are 5, 67, 1523, 1987, 3119, 9323, 11783, 14551, 21019.

FORMULA

a(n) = p(n) + p(n+1) + ... + p(2n-1) + p(2n), where p(k)=k-th prime.

a(1)=5; for n > 1, a(n) = a(n-1) - prime(n-1) + prime(2*n-1) + prime(2*n). - Zak Seidov, Oct 18 2009
