COMMENTS

All primes created that way are congruent to 712 (mod 715).
Numbers in the chain may not be prime, for example 2*45757 + 3 = 91517.
The first primes congruent to 712 (mod 715) that are missed by the chain are 10007, 15727 and 18587.
On the first comment: it is easy to see that these primes are of the form 715*2^k  3.  Bruno Berselli, May 14 2013

EXAMPLE

p = 1427, a prime, begins the sequence;
2*1427 + 3 = 2857 is prime and thus is a term.
2*2857 + 3 = 5717 is prime and thus is a term.


MAPLE
