COMMENTS

Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.
Since F(n) divides F(mn) (cf. A001578, A086597), all terms of this sequence are primes except for a(2) = 4 = 2 * 2 but F(2) = 1.  M. F. Hasler, Dec 12 2007
What is the next larger twin prime after F(4) = 3, F(5) = 5, F(7) = 13? The next candidates seem to be F(104911) or F(1968721) (greater of a pair), or F(397379), F(931517) (lesser of a pair).  M. F. Hasler, Jan 30 2013, edited Dec 24 2016, edited Sep 23 2017 by Bobby Jacobs
Henri Lifchitz confirms that the data section gives the full list (49 terms) as far as we know it today of indices of prime Fibonacci numbers (including proven primes and PRPs).  N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 09 2016
Terms n such that n2 is also a term are listed in A279795.  M. F. Hasler, Dec 24 2016
There are no Fibonacci numbers that are twin primes after F(7) = 13. Every Fibonacci prime greater than F(4) = 3 is of the form F(2*n+1). Since F(2*n+1)+2 and F(2*n+1)2 are F(n+2)*L(n1) and F(n1)*L(n+2) in some order, and F(n+2) > 1, L(n1) > 1, F(n1) > 1, and L(n+2) > 1 for n > 3, there are no other Fibonacci twin primes.

FORMULA

Prime(i) = a(n) for some n <=> A080345(i) <= 1.  M. F. Hasler, Dec 12 2007
a(n) = 1 + Sum_{m=1..L(n)} (abs(nS(m))  abs(nS(m)1/2) + 1/2), where S(m) = Sum_{k=1..m} (A010051(A000045(k))) and L(n) >= a(n)  1. L(n) can be any function of n which satisfies the inequality.  Timothy Hopper, Jun 07 2015
