 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS For n = 1, 2, 5, 9, 19, 25, the corresponding primes are 11, 239, 1047551, 68719214591, 75557863725639445512191, 1267650600228228275596796362751. a(n) is not of the form 5*k+6 (divisibility by 11) or 9*k+8 (divisibility by 19) or 7*k+3*(-1)^k (divisibility by 29). Conjecture: the odd terms are not of the form 8*k+7. n is in the sequence iff 2*n is in A098845 (terms a(21)-a(30) are derived from that sequence). - Ray Chandler, Sep 25 2019 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..30. EXAMPLE 5 is in the sequence because 16^5-4^5-1 = 1047551 is prime.
