Records in A245509: smallest m > 1 such that the first odd number greater than m^k is prime for every 0 < k < n, but not for k = n.

COMMENTS

For more comments and a program, see A245509. a(9), if it exists, certainly exceeds 1050000000. It is not clear whether this sequence is infinite, nor whether a(n) is defined for every n.


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8.


EXAMPLE

a(4) = 105 because 105 is the smallest m such that the first odd numbers after m^k are prime for k = 1,2,3, but composite for k = 4.
