COMMENTS

Sequences A162488 and A162489 list the corresponding x and y values.

Sequence A094133 lists these primes ordered by their size (without multiplicity). See there for more information, links and references.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8.

FORMULA

a(n) = A162488(n)^A162489(n) + A162489(n)^A162488(n)

EXAMPLE

The least x such that x^y+y^x is prime for some x>y>1 is A162488(1)=3, for y=A162489(1)=2, yielding the prime a(1) = 9 + 8 = 17.

PROG

(PARI) for(i=3, 999, for(j=2, i-1, isprime(i^j+j^i)|next; print1(i^j+j^i", "); break))
