 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Conjecture: each term in the sequence ends with digit 9. The expression k*2^n - 1 with k = 45 yields more primes than any other value of k = 1 to 100 and n = 1000. The term a(44) has 939 digits; a(45) has 1026 digits; a(50) has 2706 digits. - Bajpai Each term is congruent to 89 mod 90 and therefore each term in the sequence ends in 9. This is a very simple consequence of the definition. - Alonso del Arte, Oct 11 2013 LINKS K. D. Bajpai, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..44 EXAMPLE a(4) = 719: 45*2^4 - 1 = 719, which is prime. a(9) = 737279: 45*2^14 - 1 = 737279, which is prime. MAPLE KD:= proc() local a; a:=45*2^n-1; if isprime(a) then return (a) : fi; end: seq(KD(), n=1..1000); MATHEMATICA Select[2^Range[100]45 - 1, PrimeQ] (* Alonso del Arte, Oct 11 2013 *) CROSSREFS Cf.
