COMMENTS

Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.

The numbers produced by 72 and 318 have now been certified prime by Primo. 13583, found by PrimeForm using recurrence mode, corresponds to a 60228-digit probable prime. - Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 29 2006

EXAMPLE

13 is a term as 2^1 + 4^2 + 6^3 + 8^4 + 10^5 + 12^6 + 14^7 + 16^8 + 18^9 + 20^10 + 22^11 + 24^12 + 26^13 + 1 = 2518267981703965963, which is prime (certified with Primo).
