 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Suggested by J. Gerasimov, based on the observation that the first 6 terms a(0)...a(5) are prime. The next primes in the sequence a(n) occur for n=12, 45, 65 and no other n below 1000. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 19 2012 LINKS FORMULA A218057(n) = A109613(n)^A052928(n+1) + A052928(n+2)^A109613(n+1)/2.
