COMMENTS

The 809- and 1176-digit numbers associated with the terms 1039 and 1511 have been certified prime with Primo. - Rick L. Shepherd, Nov 15 2002

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..15.

EXAMPLE

2 is in the sequence because 6^2 - 5^2 = 36 - 25 = 11, which is prime.

3 is not in the sequence because 6^3 - 5^3 = 216 - 125 = 91 = 7 * 13, which is not prime.
