Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

For any n>=3, a(n) is divisible by 3. This follows from the following simple result, combined with the fact that A061725(n), n>=3, is divisible by 3: Let r>=5 be an odd integer such that r^2 + 2 is divisible by 3. Then r^2 + 2^i is divisible by 3 for any odd integer i>=3. In particular, r^2 + 2^r is divisible by 3. This contribution was inspired by Problem of the Month - Math Central, MP98 (problem for October 2010), which asks for all primes p such that 2^p + p^2 is also a prime. - Shai Covo (green355(AT)netvision.net.il), Nov 02 2010
