 A166852 Numbers n such that n^n + 3 is prime. 4
 2, 1036, 2770 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Numbers corresponding to a(2) and a(3) are probable primes. 2770 is in the sequence so 2770^2770 + 3 is a probable prime; it is interesting that 277027703 is also prime. For the first term we have the same property: both 2^2 + 3 and 223 are prime. The prime corresponding to the next term, if it exists, has more than 20000 digits. For n = -1, n^n + 3 = 2 is prime but sequence focuses on the positive values of n. - Altug Alkan, Nov 28 2015 LINKS MATHEMATICA Do[If[GCD[n, 3]==1&&PrimeQ[n^n+3], Print[n]], {n, 2, 5362, 2}] PROG (PARI) is(n)=ispseudoprime(n^n+3) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 13 2017 CROSSREFS Cf.
