The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS These are similar to the Woodall primes, A050918, which are primes of the form n*2^n-1. LINKS EXAMPLE 5 = 2*2^2 - 3;  61 = 4*2^4 - 3. MAPLE #choose N large, then S is the desired set f:=n->n*2^n - 3: S:={}: for n from 0 to N do if(isprime(f(n))) then S:=S union {f(n)}: fi: od CROSSREFS Cf. A050918.
