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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

From Antti Karttunen, Nov 29 & 30 2013: (Start)

This sequence is the intersection of A005382 and A027697.


A000069(n) reduces according to the bit parity of n-1 as follows:

  A000069(n) = 2n - 2 when n-1 is odious.

  A000069(n) = 2n - 1 when n-1 is evil.

which means that no prime in this sequence can be evil, as then p-1 would be an odious number (true for all odd primes) and A000069(p) would be 2(p-1) which obviously cannot be a prime, contradicting the requirement. Thus all primes present must belong to the set of odious primes, A027697.

As each prime p here is thus odious, it means that each p-1 is an evil number (A001969), and thus A000069(p) = 2p-1. And the stipulation that it also must be prime, is just what is required from the terms of A005382. Thus this sequence contains exactly those primes that occur in both A005382 and A027697.

Equally: this is the intersection of A000069 and A005382, thus prime p occurs here iff A000120(p) is odd and 2p-1 is prime also.

Also, apart from the first term (2), all the primes (2*a(n))-1 are also odious. This follows because for any odd number k, A000120(2k-1) = A000120(k).

7 is a prime and A000069(7) = 13, a prime also, thus 7 is in this sequence.

19 is a prime and A000069(19) = 37, a prime also, thus 19 is in this sequence.


7 is a prime, 2*7-1 = 13 is also prime, and when written in binary, 7 = '111', with an odd number of 1-bits. Thus 7 is included in this sequence.

The next time this happens, is for 19, as it is a prime, 2*19-1 = 37 is also prime, and when written in binary, 19 = '10011', also has on odd number of 1-bits.
