Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

The next term, if it exists, must be greater than 5*10^7.

Primes p such that A247954(p) = A000203(A000203(2p-1)) = A000203(A008438(p-1)) = A051027(2p-1) is a prime q. The corresponding values of the primes q are: 7, 131071, 524287, ... (A247791). Conjecture: the primes q are Mersenne primes (A000668).

Conjecture: the next term is 500461553802019261 (see comment from Hiroaki Yamanouchi in A247821). - Jaroslav Krizek, Oct 08 2014

These are the primes in A247821. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 14 2014

No other terms up to 5*10^10. - Michel Marcus, Feb 11 2020

a(5) > 5*10^18. - Giovanni Resta, Feb 14 2020

EXAMPLE

Prime 2 is in the sequence because sigma(sigma(2*2-1)) = sigma(sigma(3)) = sigma(4) = 7, i.e., prime.

MAPLE

with(numtheory): A247790:=n->`if`(isprime(n) and isprime(sigma(sigma(2*n-1))), n, NULL): seq(A247790(n), n=1..130000); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 17 2014
