Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Conjecture: There will always be an x,y,n such that x^2 + p = y^n for all primes p.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..73.

EXAMPLE

5 is the smallest number that when we add its square to prime 2, we get a perfect power, 3^3. So 3 is the first entry. 498^2 + 997 = 499^2. So 499 is the last entry in the table.

PROG

(PARI) sqplusp(n) = { local(p, x, y, c=0); forprime(p=2, n, for(x=1, n, y=x^2+p; if(ispower(y), print1(power(y)", "); c++; break ) ) ); print(); print(c) } exponent(n) = \ Return the exponent if n is a perfect power { local(x, ln, j, e=0); ln=omega(n); x=factor(n); e=x[1, 2]; for(j=2, ln, if(x[j, 2] < e, e=x[j, 2]) ); return(e) } power(n) = \Return the largest factor for which n is a perfect power { if(ispower(n), return(round(n^(1/exponent(n)))) ) }
