COMMENTS

Primes p such that (p-1)^2*2^p-1 is also prime.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..11.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because 2 is a prime and (2-1)^2*2^2-1=3 is a prime,

a(2)=3 because 3 is a prime and (3-1)^2*2^3-1=31 is a prime,

a(3)=19 because 19 is a prime and (19-1)^2*2^19-1=169869313 is a prime,

a(4)=29 because 29 is a prime and (29-1)^2*2^29-1=420906795007 is a prime.
