Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

%N Prime Lucas numbers (cf. A000032).

%C Also primes of the form 2*F(k) + F(k+1) or F(k) + 3*F(k+1), where F(k) is a Fibonacci number. - _Giovanni Teofilatto_, Jun 06 2004

%C It appears that a(n) is the intersection ( or a subset of the intersection ) of A113192[n], Primes that are the difference of two Lucas numbers and A113188[n], Primes that are the difference of two Fibonacci numbers, excluding A113192[1] = A113188[1] = 2. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Aug 06 2006

%C With reference to the first comment, primes of the form F(k)+F(k+2). - _Paolo P. Lava_, Jul 19 2012

%C For n>2 also: Primes which are the sum of four consecutive Fibonacci numbers, a(n) = A153867(n-2), cf. link to SeqFan list (Apr.2014). - _M. F. Hasler_, Apr 24 2014

%C Conjectures: 7, 47 and 2207 are the only a(n) mod 10 = 7. They are also the only a(n) values where the Lucas index is not a prime. See A001606 for the Lucas index values of these primes. See A266587 for the divisibility of Lucas numbers by powers of primes. - _Richard R. Forberg_, Mar 24 2016
