COMMENTS

The associated primes b(n), which grow too quickly for many to be given as a sequence themselves, are {primes of the form A114850(a) + A114850(b)} = {primes of the form A114850(a) + A114850(b)} and begin as follows. b(1) = 437893890380859631 = 256 + 437893890380859375 = 4^4 + 15^15 = semiprime(1)^semiprime(1) + semiprime(6)^semiprime(6).

b(2) = 88817841970012523233890533447265881 = 256 + 88817841970012523233890533447265625 = 4^4 + 25^25 = semiprime(1)^semiprime(1) + semiprime(9)^semiprime(9).

b(3) = 46656 + 88817841970012523233890533447265625 = 6^6 + 24^25 = semiprime(2)^semiprime(2) + semiprime(9)^semiprime(9). This is to A068145 "Primes of the form a^a + b^b" as A001358 semiprimes is to A000040 primes; and as A114850 "(n-th semiprime)^(n-th semiprime)" is to A051674 "(n-th prime)^(n-th prime)."

M. F. Hasler gave the present definition which allows us to list merely the indices, which in the 3 examples above, are [6, 1],[9, 1],[9, 2]. The first 13 [m,k] value pairs are (as found by M. F. Hasler as an extension) are [6, 1], [9, 1], [9, 2], [19, 5], [20, 8], [25, 7], [33, 11], [38, 6], [40, 33], [59, 14], [69, 62], [76, 57], [99, 22]. Hence our sequence begins a(1) = 6, a(2) = 9, a(3) = 9. For the sequence of corresponding k values {1, 1, 2, 5, 8, ...}, see A140053.

FORMULA

A001358(a(n))^A001358(a(n)) + A001358(A140053(n))^A001358(A140053(n)) is prime.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 6 because semiprime(6)^semiprime(6) + semiprime(1)^semiprime(1) = 15^15 + 4^4 = 437893890380859375 + 256 = 437893890380859631 is prime.
