COMMENTS

Sequence is infinite. For example, Pollack shows that numbers which are 1260327937 mod 2863311360 are not of the form p + 2^k for any prime p and k >= 0, and there are infinitely many primes in this congruence class by Dirichlet's theorem. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 20 2014

FORMULA

A078687(A049084(a(n))) = 0; subsequence of A118958. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 07 2006

EXAMPLE

127 is a prime, 127-2^0 through 127-2^6 are all nonprimes.

MATHEMATICA

fQ[n_] := Block[{k = Floor[Log[2, n]], p = n}, While[k > -1 && ! PrimeQ[p - 2^k], k--]; If[k > 0, True, False]]; Drop[Select[Prime[Range[536]], ! fQ[#] &], {2}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 10 2005; corrected by Arkadiusz Wesolowski, May 05 2012 *)
