COMMENTS

From Bruno Berselli, Aug 26 2015: (Start)

After 1, m is always even (for m odd 4^m+11 is divisible by 5).

Let m = 2*h. For h = 3*k+1, 9*k+3, 11*k+2, 11*k+8, 13*k+8, 19*k+6, 23*k+10, 23*k+14 and 29*k+28, 4^m+11 is divisible by 9, 37, 89, 23, 53, 229, 47, 1013 and 59, respectively. (End)

All terms appear to be of the form 3*k+1. - Dhilan Lahoti, Aug 31 2015

12702 is the first counterexample to Dhilan Lahoti's conjecture: 12702 = 3*4234. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 02 2017

EXAMPLE

4 is in the sequence because (4^4+11)/3 = 89 is prime.

10 is in the sequence because (4^10+11)/3 = 349529 is prime.
