COMMENTS

If n is of the form (pk)^p for some k and some prime p, then a(n) = 0 (See A097764).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..68.

FORMULA

a(A097764(n)) = 0 for all n.

EXAMPLE

1^1-1 = 0 is not prime. 2^1-1 = 1 is not prime. 3^1-1 = 2 is prime. Thus, a(1) = 3.

PROG

(Python)

import sympy

from sympy import isprime

def TwoMin(x):

..for k in range(1, 5000):

....if isprime(k**x-x):

......return k

x = 1

while x < 100:

..print(TwoMin(x))

..x += 1
