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

x := 1427 ; for i from 1 to 80 do if isprime(x) then printf("%d, ", x) ; end if; x := 2*x+3 ; end do: # R. J. Mathar, Aug 02 2009
