FORMULA

{n^(n+1)-n+1 : n nonnegative integer and n^(n+1)-n+1 in A000040} == A014293 INTERSECTION A000040.

EXAMPLE

A014293(0) = A014293(1) = 1 is nonprime, so 1 is not in this sequence.

A014293(2) = 7 is prime, so 7 is in this sequence.

A014293(3) = 79 is prime, so 79 is in this sequence.

A014293(4) = 1021 is prime, so 1021 is in this sequence.

A014293(5) = 15621 = 3 * 41 * 127 is nonprime, so 15621 is not in this sequence.
