COMMENTS

The generalization of this sequence is possible with the primes of the form  (b^n +-k)*b^n +-1.

The corresponding n are in A200816.

For n = 166, a(10) has 100 digits; for n = 327, a(11) has 197 digits; for n = 460, a(12) has 277 digits; for n = 1108, a(13) has 668 digits; for n = 4740, a(14) has 2854 digits; for n = 20760, a(15) has 12499 digits; for n = 21143, a(16) has 12730 digits.

EXAMPLE

193 is in the sequence because (2^4 - 4)*2^4 + 1 = 193 is prime.

MATHEMATICA
