From Robert Israel, Feb 13 2019: (Start)
a(n)+n-1 is the least divisor of (n-1)^4 + n^4 that is not less than n.
In particular, a(n) = (n-1)^4 + n^4 - n + 1 if (n-1)^4 + n^4 is prime, i.e. if n-1 is in A155211; otherwise a(n) <= ((n-1)^4 + n^4)/17 - n + 1 (because the least prime that can divide (n-1)^4 + n^4 is 17). (End)
