EXAMPLE
a(1) = 7 because the first prime in A006577 is A006577(3) = 7.
MAPLE
N:= 1000; # to get the first N terms
Collatz:= proc(n) option remember;
if n::even then 1+Collatz(n/2)
else 1+Collatz(3*n+1)
fi
end proc;
Collatz(1):= 0;
count:= 0;
for i from 1 while count < N do
x:= Collatz(i);
if isprime(x) then count:= count+1; A[count]:= x fi;
od:
seq(A[i], i=1..N); # Robert Israel, Jun 01 2014
MATHEMATICA
M = 100;
Collatz[n_] := Collatz[n] = If[EvenQ[n], 1+Collatz[n/2], 1+Collatz[3n+1]];
Collatz[1] = 0;
count = 0;
For[i = 1, count < M, i++, x = Collatz[i]; If[PrimeQ[x], count = count+1; a[count] = x]];
