(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A240748 Numbers n such that n^k - (n-1)^k - ... - 3^k - 2^k - 1 is prime for some k. 1
2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 13 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

a(7) > 13. See A240747 for more information.

a(n) is also the n-values such that A240747(n) is nonzero.

It is known that a(n) == 1 mod 4 or 2 mod 4 (except a(2) = 4).

If n is not squarefree, then n is not a member of this sequence.

It is known that 17, 22, 30, 41, 66, and 194 are members of this sequence.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..6.

EXAMPLE

There are primes of the form 2^k-1 (A000043) so 2 is a member of this sequence.

PROG

(PARI) s(n) = for(k=1, 6000, if(ispseudoprime(n^k-sum(i=1, n-1, i^k)), return(k)))

n=1; while(n<200, if(s(n), print(n)); n+=1)

CROSSREFS
