COMMENTS

The next term, if it exists, is > 10000. - Hugo Pfoertner, Jan 06 2020

The associated primes are: 13, 37, 881, 4651, 1273609, ...

From Robert Israel, Apr 28 2017: (Start)

All terms other than 0 are primes or powers of 2.

Heuristically, this sequence might be expected to be finite. (End)

EXAMPLE

4 is in this sequence because (1 + 4)^4 + (-4)^4 = 881 is prime.

MAPLE

N:= 1000: # to get all terms <= N

cands:= select(isprime, {seq(i, i=3..N, 2)}) union {0, seq(2^k, k=1..ilog2(N))}:

select(n -> isprime((1+n)^n + (-n)^n), cands); # Robert Israel, Apr 28 2017

PROG

(MAGMA) [n: n in [0..170]| IsPrime((n+1)^n + (-n)^n)];

(PARI) is(n)=ispseudoprime((n+1)^n+(-n)^n) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 28 2017
