COMMENTS

If m is a term, then there is a base b > 1 such that the base-b representation of m has digital sum = 3.

The base b for which m = b^i + b^j + 1 is not uniquely determined. Example: 13 = 2^3+2^2+1 = 3^2 +3^1+1.

Numbers m that satisfy m = b^i + b^j + 1 and b == 1 (mod 3) are not terms.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 7, since 7 = 2^2 + 2^1 + 1 is prime.

a(2) = 11, since 11 = 2^3 + 2^1 + 1 is prime.

a(5) = 31, since 31 = 3^3 + 3^1 + 1 is prime.

a(10) = 73.

a(100) = 24181.

a(10^3) = 23160157.

a(10^4) = 7039461703.

a(10^5) = 1226630453623.

a(10^6) = 182489744292253.
