 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 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 a(14) > 300,000. - Robert Price, Mar 18 2017 LINKS 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.
