 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A Fibonacci number with a composite index is divisible by the Fibonacci numbers indexed by the divisors of the index (e.g., F(12) is divisible by F(3), F(4), F(6)), which would suggest that Fibonacci numbers indexed by primes are also themselves primes. This sequence clearly shows that not to be the case. REFERENCES David Wells, The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers, entry 4181. LINKS Vladimir Drobot, On primes in the Fibonacci sequence, Fib. Quart. 38 (1) (2000) 71 EXAMPLE Fibonacci(2) = 1 is not prime, but its index 2 is prime. Fibonacci(19) = 4181 is a composite Fibonacci number, but its index 19 is prime. MAPLE for n from 1 to 200 do if isprime(n) and (not isprime( fibonacci(n))) then print( fibonacci(n)): fi: od: MATHEMATICA Select[Table[Fibonacci[Prime[n]], {n, 25}], Not[PrimeQ[#]] &] (* Alonso del Arte, Nov 22 2010 *) PROG (PARI) f(n) = forprime(x=2, n, p=fibonacci(x); if(!isprime(p), print1(p", "))) \\ Cino Hilliard, Feb 11 2004 CROSSREFS Cf.
