COMMENTS
a(n) exists for every n; see Sierpinski (1988), p. 221.
The distinct primes in the sequence form A263980.
Conjecture: a(n) <= 2*(2n+1)^2 for all n >= 0.

FORMULA
a(n) == 1 or 2 mod 4.
EXAMPLE
The smallest prime of the form a^2 + b^2 with a > 2 and b > 2 is 41 = 4^2 + 5^2, so a(2) = 41 and a(3) = 41.
