COMMENTS

a(13) = 165394 is a significant outlier from the generally expected trend, which can be conjectured to be 6*2^n*gamma, where gamma is the EulerMascheroni constant A001620. Additionally, the next b > a(13) such that b^(6*2^n)  b^(3*2^n) + 1 is prime is 165836, which is remarkably close to a(13).  Serge Batalov, Jan 24 2018

EXAMPLE

2^12  2^6 + 1 = 4033 is composite and 3^12  3^6 + 1 = 530713 is prime, so a(1) = 3.
