COMMENTS

For n>0 Fibonacci numbers are A000045[n] = {1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,...}. Let f(k,n) = Sum[ Fibonacci[i]*k^(i-1), {i,1,n} ]. a(2) = 1 because f(1,2) = 1*1 + 1 = 2 is prime. a(3) = 2 because f(2,3) = 2*2^2 + 1*2 + 1 = 11 is prime but f(1,3) = 2*1^2 + 1*1 + 1 = 4 is not prime. a(4) = 1 because f(1,4) = 3*1^3 + 2*1^2 + 1*1 + 1 = 7 is prime. Corresponding smallest primes of the form f(k,n) or f((a(n),n) = Sum[ Fibonacci[i]*a(n)^(i-1), {i,1,n} ] are {2,11,7,7207,853211,46477210729,6554599,484440107670157,...}.
