COMMENTS

If n mod 6 = 1, both p and q must be 2, and a(n)=0 if n + 4 is not a prime. The values of a(n) for n=257,297,353,383,557 are either greater than 176 000 or 0. Several large entries: a(87) = 2^25633 + 87, a(717) = 2^3217 + 717, a(773) = 2^2539 + 773, a(927) = 2^1117 + 927.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=5 because 5=2^2+1 is the smallest prime of the form p^q+1. a(2)=11 because 11=3^2+2. a(3)=7, because 7=2^2+3. a(17)=8209, because 8209=2^13+17. a(31)=0, because p^q+31 cannot be a prime.
