 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Chains of length n of nearly doubled primes. Smallest prime beginning a complete Cunningham chain of length n of the second kind. (For the first kind see A005602.) - Jonathan Sondow, Oct 30 2015 LINKS G. Löh, Long chains of nearly doubled primes, Math. Comp., 53 (1989), 751-759. Wikipedia, Cunningham chain EXAMPLE a(3) = 2 because 2 is the smallest prime such that the sequence {2, 3, 5, 9, ...} begins with exactly 3 primes, where each term in the sequence is twice the preceding term minus 1.
