COMMENTS

The ratio a(n+1)/a(n) is about 2 * n /(n+1). - Corrected by Thomas Ordowski, Oct 17 2014

Conjecture: a(n) ~ C * 2^n / n, where C = 1/(2 log 2) = 0.7213475... - Thomas Ordowski, Oct 17 2014

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..35.

Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Proth's Theorem

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1 because 3 is the only Proth prime for n=1.

a(2)=2 because 5 and 13 are the only primes for n=2.

a(3)=1 because 41 is the only prime for n=3.
