%N Smallest prime of the form k*2^n - 1, for k >= 2.

%F a(n) << 37^n by Xylouris' improvement to Linnik's theorem. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Dec 10 2013

%e a(3)=23 because 23 = 3*2^3 - 1 is prime.

%e a(4)=31 because 31 = 2*2^4 - 1 is prime.

%t a = {}; Do[k = 1; While[ !PrimeQ[k 2^n + 2^n - 1], k++ ]; AppendTo[a, k 2^n + 2^n - 1], {n, 0, 50}]; a
