COMMENTS

a(9) > 19. See A240766 for more information.
a(n) is also the nvalues such that A240766(n) is nonzero.
It is known that a(n) must be == 3 mod 4 or 0 mod 4 (except a(1) = 2) due to the parity of the sum. If an nvalue is congruent to 1 mod 4 or 2 mod 4, the sum will always be even and thus, not prime.
It is known that 31, 36, 40, 43, 47, 56, 67, 83, and 171 are members of this sequence.
If n1 is not squarefree, then n is not a member of this sequence.

EXAMPLE

2^k is prime for at least one k (and only one k in this instance; k = 1). Thus, 2 is a member of this sequence.
3^k+2^k is prime for at least one k (see A082101). Thus, 3 is a member of this sequence.


PROG

(PARI) a(n)=for(k=1, 4000, if(ispseudoprime(sum(i=2, n, i^k)), return(k)))
n=1; while(n<200, if(a(n), print(a(n))); n+=1)
