COMMENTS

There are only 25 such primes below 4^1000. Terms beyond a(15) are too large to be displayed here: The sequence should be extended by listing the corresponding nvalues in A091515.  M. F. Hasler, May 15 2008
Is there an explanation for the following observed pattern? Between groups of primes of roughly the same size, there is a gap of about the magnitude of these primes, i.e., the size roughly doubles (e.g., after the 16 and 17digit primes, there is a 34digit prime, then a 78digit prime and some others up to 105 digits, then some 200 to 250digit primes, then approximately 500 digits...).

FORMULA

a(k) = 4^A091515(k)  2^(A091515(k) + 1)  1 = (2^A091515(k)  1)^2  2.  M. F. Hasler, May 15 2008
