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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The condition a(n) > n is introduced because 2 and 3 trivially satisfy the condition in every base b >= 2.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..16.

EXAMPLE

409 = (110011001)_2 = (120011)_3 and none of the numbers (10011001)_2, (11001)_2, (1001)_2, (1)_2, (20011)_3, (11)_3, (1)_3 is prime. Since 409 is the smallest prime p > 3 with this property, a(3) = 409.

MATHEMATICA

mx[n_] := Block[{b = 2}, While[Not[Or @@ PrimeQ@Mod[n, b^Range@Floor@ Log[b, n]]], b++]; b-1]; c=1; n=5; While[n < 15^6, If[mx[n] > c, Print@{++c, n}, n = NextPrime@n]]
