a(26) > 2*10^5. - Robert Price, Nov 20 2013

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25.

EXAMPLE

For n=7, a(3)=3^7-26=2161 and 2161 is prime. Hence n=7 is included in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

Do[If[PrimeQ[3^n - 26], Print[n]], {n, 3, 10000}]

(PARI) is(n)=isprime(3^n-26) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Feb 17 2017

  (m = 32) A219048, (m = -32) A219049, (m = 34) A219050, (m = -34) A219051. Note that if m is a multiple of 3, 3^n + m is also a multiple of 3 (for n greater than 0), and as such isn't prime.
