Conjecturally all a(n)>0.

Since d(a(n)+2^n) = 2^n, where d(n) is the number of divisors of n, and d(a(n)+d(a(n)+2^n)) = d(a(n)), then it is a subsequence of sequence A175304.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..10.

For n=3,...,8, we have the following numbers M, B=M+2^n and their prime divisors:

70 = 2 5 7; 78 = 2 3 13.

2030 = 2 5 7 29; 2046 = 2 3 11 31.

42978 = 2 3 13 19 29; 43010 = 2 5 11 17 23.

1788710 = 2 5 7 11 23 101; 1788774 = 2 3 13 17 19 71.

63905142 = 2 3 7 17 37 41 59; 63905270 = 2 5 11 13 23 29 67.

5705962314 = 2 3 13 17 19 23 43 229; 5705962570 = 2 5 7 11 29 59 61 71.
