 OFFSET 0,6 COMMENTS Peter Lawrence (see links) has posted a challenge to find a 3 X 3 integer matrix with "smallish" elements whose powers generate a sequence that is not in the OEIS.  This sequence is one of the solutions found. |a(n)| is a prime number for n in {5, 7, 8, 11, 19, 27, 108, 276, 371, 608, ...} with values {2, 3, 13, 23, 3359, 69481, 167527749243856707416101, ...}.
