COMMENTS

Primes 1 + b^2 are a form of generalized Fermat primes.

It is conjectured that a(n) is asymptotic to 0.6864067*li(10^n).

FORMULA

a(n) = A083844(2*n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3 because the only generalized Fermat primes F_1(b) where b<10^1 are the primes: 5, 17, 37.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = sum(b=1, 10^n/2-1, isprime((2*b)^2+1))
