COMMENTS

This is a "Proof of existence of infinitely many primes" sequence. Proof. Let N = (Product_{e_i=0..1} (Product_{i=1..n} p_i^e_i + Product_{i=1..n} p_i^(1-e_i)))^(1/2). Suppose there are only a finite number of primes p_i, 1 <= i <= n. If N is prime, then for all i, N != p_i because, for all i, p_i < N. If N is composite, then it must have a prime divisor p which is different from primes p_i because, for all i, N !== 0 (mod p_i).

The numbers of decimal digits of a(n) are 1, 2, 5, 15, 39, 100, 246, 590, 1387, 3215, 7321, 16507, 36823, 81305, 178212, 388495, 842638, 1816984, ..., . - Robert G. Wilson v

The numbers of prime factors of a(n) are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 33, 69, 136, 280, 566, 1107, ..., . - Robert G. Wilson v

EXAMPLE

a(3) = ((1 + p_1*p_2*p_3)*(p_3 + p_1*p_2)*(p_2 + p_1*p_3)*(p_2*p_3 + p_1)*(p_1 + p_2*p_3)*(p_1*p_3 + p_2)*(p_1*p_2 + p_3)*(p_1*p_2*p_3 + 1))^(1/2)

= (1 + p_1*p_2*p_3)*(p_3 + p_1*p_2)*(p_2 + p_1*p_3)*(p_2*p_3 + p_1) = 31*11*13*17.

MATHEMATICA
