 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Clearly each term is congruent to 1 modulo 6. By the conjecture in A234309, this sequence should have infinitely many terms. Note that any Mersenne prime greater than 3 has the form 2^{2*k+1} - 1 = 4^k + 4^k - 1, where k is a positive integer. LINKS Zhi-Wei Sun, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..800 EXAMPLE a(1) = 7 since 7 = 4^1 + 4^1 - 1 is prime. a(2) = 19 since 19 = 4^1 + 4^2 - 1 is prime. a(3) = 31 since 31 = 4^2 + 4^2 - 1 is prime.
