COMMENTS

Also primes p such that 4p-3 is square. - Giovanni Teofilatto, Sep 07 2005

Also these primes are sums of 1 and some consecutive even numbers starting at 2; e.g., 31 = 1+2+4+6+8+10. - Labos Elemer, Apr 15 2003

Also primes of form n^2 - n + 1 (Prime central polygonal numbers, A002061). - Zak Seidov, Jan 26 2006

Also primes which are of the form TriangularNumber(n) + TriangularNumber(n+2): 7 = 1+6, 13 = 3+10, 31 = 10+21, 43 = 15+28, 73 = 28+45, ... - Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Apr 03 2009

It is not known whether there are infinitely many primes of the form n^2+n+1. H. E. Rose, A Course in Number Theory, Clarendon Press,1988, p. 217. - Daniel Tisdale, Jun 27 2009

These numbers when >= 7 are prime repunits 111_n in a base n >= 2, so except for 3, they are all Brazilian primes belonging to A085104. (See Links "Les nombres brésiliens", Sections V.4 - V.5.) A002383 is generated by A002384 which lists the bases n of 111_n. A002383 = A053183 Union A185632. - Bernard Schott, Dec 22 2012

Conjecture: the set of these numbers, except 3, is the intersection of sets A085104 and A059055. See A225148. - Thomas Ordowski, May 02 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = A002384(n)^2 + A002384(n) + 1 = (A088503(n-1)^2 + 3)/4 = (A110284(n) + 3)/4. - Chandler
