COMMENTS

It is conjectured that there are infinitely many primes of the form x^8 + 1 (and thus this sequence never becomes constant), but this has not been proved.

EXAMPLE

a(16) = 3 because the only primes of the form x^8 + 1 < 10^16 are the primes: 2, 257, 65537.


PROG

(PARI) a(n) = sum(k=1, (10^n1)^(1/8), isprime(k^8+1))
