A243100 Primes of the form x^(y+1)-y^x, for x,y > 0. 4

See A123206 for primes of the form x^y-y^x with x,y>1. If y=1 is allowed, any prime p is obtained for x=p+1; this motivates the "y+1" in the exponent of the present sequence.

See also A086877 (and A098463) for primes of the form (x+1)^x-x^x.

y=0 would give "Primes of the form x", so y>0 is required. y=1 gives x^2-1 = (x-1)*(x+1) which is only prime for x=2. - Jens Kruse Andersen, Aug 23 2014

(PARI) a=[]; for(S=1, 199, for(x=1, S-1, ispseudoprime(p=x^(1+y=S-x)-y^x)&&a=concat(a, p))); vecsort(a) \\ The list calculated this way is probably not complete up to the last terms. E.g., a 46 digit prime is found for x=3, y=97 after three larger terms for smaller S=x+y.

(PARI) m=300; a=[]; for(x=1, m+5, for(y=1, m+5, p=x^(y+1)-y^x; if(p<2^m && ispseudoprime(p), a=concat(a, p)))); a=vecsort(a) \\ Compute all terms below 2^m. Jens Kruse Andersen, Aug 23 2014
