Nearest k to j such that k*(2^j1)+1 is prime where j=A000043(n) and 2^j1 = Mersenneprime(n) = A000668(n). If there are two k values equidistant from j, each of which produces a prime, the larger of the two gets added to the sequence.

EXAMPLE

n=6, j=A000043(6)=17, A000668(6)=131071, then k=12 or k=22 are the nearest values to j which produce primes so we take the larger of the two k values for a(6)=22.
