COMMENTS

This is to 7 as A176916 is to 5, A176805 is to 3, and as A176691 is to 2. This is the 7th row of the array A[k,n] = k^n + k*n + 1. The subsequence of primes begins: 2, 16843, 1977326821, no more through a(200).
The next term that is prime, for n=1390, has 1174 digits. Then there are no further prime terms through n=5000.  Harvey P. Dale, Apr 17 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = 7*a(n1)  42*(n1) + 1, with n > 0. For n=5, a(5) = 7*2430  42*4 + 1 = 16843. [Bruno Berselli, May 18 2010]
a(n) = 9*a(n1)  15*a(n2) + 7*a(n3).
G.f.: (2 + 3*x + 41*x^2) / ((7*x1)*(x1)^2). (End)


EXAMPLE

a(5) = 7^5 + 7*5 + 1 = 16843 is prime.
