%N Primes of the form 4^n + n.

%C It is convenient, although not necessary, to let n be an odd number since n even => 4^n + n is even > 2. Conjecture: There is an infinite number of primes in this sequence.

%C The next term (a(8)) has 126 digits. - _Harvey P. Dale_, Jun 05 2014

%e For n = 3, 4^3+3=67 is prime.

%t Select[Table[4^n+n,{n,1,251,2}],PrimeQ] (* _Harvey P. Dale_, Jun 05 2014 *)
