COMMENTS

a(9) found by Donovan Johnson.

Comment from Donovan Johnson: A117705 and A117706 are both Fermat probable prime to four bases. They have also passed a Miller-Rabin primality test in five randomly chosen bases. I checked the n values up to 70000 for A117705 and n values up to 60000 for A117706. No additional primes or probable primes were found.

The actual primes are listed in A243114. - M. F. Hasler, Aug 20 2014

From the Lifchitz link: 100193 and 114433 are also in this sequence. - Robert Price, Mar 27 2019
