Indices of primes in A205646.

a(50) > 10^6. - Robert Price, Oct 28 2020

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..49.

FORMULA

{n: 3^n + 16 is in A000040} = {n: 3^n + 16 is prime} = {n: A000244(n) is prime} = {n: A205646(n) is prime}.

EXAMPLE

57 is in the sequence because (3^57) + 16 = 1570042899082081611640534579 is prime.

(m = 32) A219048, (m = -32) A219049, (m = 34) A219050, (m = -34) A219051. Note that if m is a multiple of 3, 3^n + m is also a multiple of 3 (for n greater than 0), and as such isn't prime.
