COMMENTS

549, 721, and 755 are in the sequence, but not necessarily the next three terms. The other possibilities for a(9) are 483, 503, and 543. - Robert Israel, Feb 10 2019

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..9.

factordb.com, Status of 4^483-483.

EXAMPLE

2 is in this sequence because 4^2-2 = 2*7 is semiprime.

17 is in this sequence because 4^17-17 = 6971*2464477 and these two factors are prime.

MATHEMATICA

Select[Range[120], PrimeOmega[4^# - #]==2 &]

PROG

(MAGMA) IsSemiprime:=func<i | &+[d[2]: d in Factorization(i)] eq 2>; [m: m in [2..120] | IsSemiprime(s) where s is 4^m-m];
