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

Iff the trinomial T(x)=1+x^k+x^n is irreducible (A073571) then the polynomial T(x+1)=1+(x+1)^k+(1+x)^n is irreducible.

The order of T(x+1) is in general different from the order of T(x).

So this sequence is different from A073726: for example, 1+(x+1)^7+(1+x)^10 is primitive but 1+(x+1)^3+(1+x)^10 is not (while 1+x^7+x^10 and 1+x^3+x^10 are mutual reciprocal and have the same order).

EXAMPLE

10 is in the sequence because 1+(x+1)^7+(1+x)^10 is a primitive polynomial over GF(2).
