 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Observation: a(2)..a(4) coincide with a(1)..a(3) from A191623. - Omar E. Pol, Jan 30 2015 LINKS Chris K. Caldwell and G. L. Honaker, Jr. Prime Curios! EXAMPLE a(1)=2 because 2 and (2^2)+1=5 are prime. a(2)=3 because 3 and (2^2*3^3)+1=109 are prime. a(3)=19 because 19 and (2^2*3^3*19^19)+1=213669322811313867625389733 are prime, and this did not work for either 5, 7, 11, 13.
