 A172995 Numbers k such that (3^k + 7)/2 is prime. 2
 1, 3, 7, 75, 191, 395, 891, 2935, 3855, 59887, 125447 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The primes are in A172996. Naturally these numbers are odd since 3^(2*k) + 7 = (8+1)^k + 7 == 0 (mod 8). - Bruno Berselli, Oct 08 2012 For n <= 9, (3^a(n) + 7)/2 has been proved prime using PARI's ECPP; a(10) corresponds to a BPSW PRP. a(11) > 10^5. - Lucas A.
