COMMENTS

According to the conjecture in A236241, this sequence should have infinitely many terms. The prime C(2*a(52),a(52)) + prime(a(52)) = C(61468, 30734) + prime(30734) has 18502 decimal digits.

For primes of the form C(2*m, m) + prime(m), see A236245.

See also A236248 for a similar sequence.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 5 since C(2*1,1) + prime(1) = 4, C(2*2,2) + prime(2) = 9, C(2*3,3) + prime(3) = 25 and C(2*4,4) + prime(4) = 77 are all composite, but C(2*5,5) + prime(5) = 252 + 11 = 263 is prime.
