 A176245 Primes of the form A174881(k)+1. 0
 3, 37, 160001 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS There are no primes of the form A174881(k)-1. There are no further terms through ((40*(40+1))^40) + 1 = 52330005981567385600000001 * 7498996269037701079813541255115132352481561590213553612395236504891175431182405289081378432614400. Contribution from Farideh Firoozbakht, Apr 22 2010: (Start) Each term is of the form (4^n+2^n)^2^n+1. Next term (if it exists) is greater than (4^15+2^15)^2^15, so it has more than 295924 digits. (End) LINKS EXAMPLE a(1) = (1^1)*((1+1)^1) + 1 = 2 + 1 = 3 is prime. a(2) = (2^2)*((2+1)^2) + 1 = 36 + 1 = 37 is prime. a(3) = (4^4)*((4+1)^4) + 1 = 160000 + 1 = 160001 is prime. CROSSREFS Cf.
