COMMENTS

a(15)=87888967 but a(14) is unknown. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Mar 17 2018

The prime pair related to a(14) was found four days ago, and today double checking has proved that they are indeed the first occurrence for n=14. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, May 02 2018

FORMULA

a(n) is the smallest number such that (a(n)+1)^(2^n)+1 and (a(n)-1)^(2^n)+1 are both prime.

a(n) = A217993(n) + 1. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Feb 27 2016

EXAMPLE

a(11)=6992033 because 6992034^2048+1 is prime, 6992032^2048+1 is prime and no smaller pair of bases differing by 2 gives a pair of primes with the exponent 2^11=2048.

CROSSREFS

Cf. A217993.
