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”).

A subsequence of A070694.

Conjecture: the sequence is infinite.

For n=4 and n=9, a(n)*2+1 is also a prime.

The first term greater than 1 such that k^(2^6) + 1 is also prime, is a(148) = 2072005925466, see A335805. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Aug 18 2020

k=7072833120 is in the sequence because the following are six primes: 7072833121, 7072833120^2+1, k^4+1, k^8+1, k^16+1, k^32+1.


Cf. A000040, A006093, A019434, A056993, A070325, A070655, A070689, A070694, A090872, A335805.

Sequence in context: A199633 A288274 A078512 * A082255 A216867 A095926
