 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS a(n) = 1 if and only if n is in A006093 (primes minus 1), so 1 occurs infinitely often. LINKS EXAMPLE Consider n = 7. 1 + Sum{j=1...7} k^(2*j-1) evaluates to 8, 10923, 1793614, 71582789, 1271565756, 13433856703, 98907531458, 558482096649, 2573639151184, 10101010101011 for k = 1, ..., 10. Only the last of these numbers, 1+10+10^3+10^5+10^7+10^9+10^11+10^13 = 10101010101011, is prime, hence a(7) = 10.
