COMMENTS

Corresponding smallest primes of the form (n+1)^p - n^p, where p = a(n) is an odd prime, are listed in A121091(n+1) = {7, 19, 37, 61, 4651, 127, 1273609, 2685817, 271, 331, 397, 6431804812640900941, 547, 631, ...}. a(n) = A058013(n) for n = {4, 7, 10, 12, 13, 16, 17, 19, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 31, ...} = A047845(n) = (n-1)/2, where n runs through odd nonprimes (A014076), for n>1. a(97) = 7. a(99)-a(112) = {5, 43, 5, 13, 7, 5, 3, 6529, 59, 3, 5, 5, 113, 5}. a(114) = 139. a(117)-a(129) = {7, 13, 3, 5, 5, 7, 3, 5167, 3, 41, 59, 3, 3}. a(131) = 101. a(n) is currently unknown for n = {113, 115, 116, 130, 132, ...}.

a(96) = 1307, a(98) = 709.

a(137) is probably 196873 from prime of this form discovered by Jean-Louis Charton in December 2009 and reported to Henri Lifchitz's PRP Top. - Robert Price, Feb 17 2012

a(138) through a(150) is 113,>32401,3,7,3,8839,5,7,13,3,5,271,13. - Robert Price, Feb 17 2012

a(137) = 196873 confirmed by Fischer link; a(139) > 260000. - Ray Chandler, Feb 26 2017
