Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

From Bruno Berselli, Aug 26 2015: (Start)

After 1, m is always even (for m odd 4^m+11 is divisible by 5).

Let m = 2*h. For h = 3*k+1, 9*k+3, 11*k+2, 11*k+8, 13*k+8, 19*k+6, 23*k+10, 23*k+14 and 29*k+28, 4^m+11 is divisible by 9, 37, 89, 23, 53, 229, 47, 1013 and 59, respectively. (End)

All terms appear to be of the form 3*k+1. - Dhilan Lahoti, Aug 31 2015

12702 is the first counterexample to Dhilan Lahoti's conjecture: 12702 = 3*4234. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 02 2017

EXAMPLE

4 is in the sequence because (4^4+11)/3 = 89 is prime.

10 is in the sequence because (4^10+11)/3 = 349529 is prime.
