COMMENTS

Conjecture: the sequence is infinite.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..22.

EXAMPLE

0 is in the sequence since (0^i)+7 = 7 is prime for i>0.

3981186 is in the sequence because the following seven numbers are primes: 3981186+7, 3981186^2+7, ..., 3981186^7+7.

PROG

(Java)

import java.math.*;

public class A234798 {

public static void main (String[] args) {

  BigInteger c7 = BigInteger.valueOf(7);

  for (long i=0; ; i+=2) {

    if (!BigInteger.valueOf(i+7).isProbablePrime(80))

      continue;

    BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(i), b=bi;

    long k;

    for (k=1; k<7; ++k) {

      b = b.multiply(bi);

      if (!b.add(c7).isProbablePrime(80)) break;

    }

    if (k==7)  System.out.printf("%d, ", i);

  }

}
