COMMENTS

Does 2 occur infinitely often in A124151?
The sum in A124151 is 1+n if k=1, and 1+k*(k^(2n)1)/(k^21) if k>1. The indices of A124151(n)=2 are where k=1 is avoided, but where k=2 leads to a prime, i.e., where 1+n is not prime but 1+2*(4^n1)1)/3 = (2^(2n+1)+1)/3 is prime. Therefore this sequence here is constructed by taking all n=(A000978(i)1)/2 (the members of A127936), and eliminating cases with 1+n in A000040.  R. J. Mathar, Feb 03 2010
