A257916 a(n) is the largest x that is a member of a pair (x, y) of integers with x - y > 1 such that x^2 - y^2 is equal to the Fermat number 2^(2^n) + 1, or 0 if no such number exists. 2

FORMULA
If F(n) = 2^(2^n) + 1 is composite, then a(n) = (A032742(F(n)) + A093179(n))/2.
PROG
(PARI) a(n) = {my(fn = 2^(2^n) + 1); if (isprime(fn), return (0)); my(spf = factor(fn)[1, 1]); (fn/spf + spf)/2; } \\ Michel Marcus, Jun 07 2015
