COMMENTS

For p in this sequence, 2^p - 1 is called a Mersenne-Chen prime.

Conjecture: 2^127 - 1 is the largest Mersenne-Chen prime.

Except for the initial term 2, this sequence is the intersection of A000043 and A000978 given by A107360. - Max Alekseyev, Oct 28 2008, Jan 28 2010

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..10.

EXAMPLE

a(5)=13 because 2^13 - 1 = 8191 is prime and 2^13 + 1 = 3*2731 is semiprime.
