COMMENTS

Equivalently, primes of the form 3m + 1.
Primes p dividing sum(k = 0, p, C(2k, k))  3 = A006134(p)  3.  Benoit Cloitre, Feb 08 2003
Primes p such that tau(p) == 2 (mod 3) where tau(x) is the Ramanujan tau function (cf. A000594).  Benoit Cloitre, May 04 2003
Primes of the form x^2 + xy  2y^2 = (x+2y)(xy).  N. J. A. Sloane, May 31 2014
Primes of the form x^2  xy + 7y^2 with x and y nonnegative.  T. D. Noe, May 07 2005
Primes p such that p^2 divides Sum_{m = 1 .. 2(p  1)} Sum_{k = 1 .. m} (2k)!/(k!)^2.  Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 04 2006
A039701(A049084(a(n))) = A134323(A049084(a(n))) = 1.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 21 2007
The set of primes of the form 3n + 1 is a superset of the set of greater of twin primes larger than five (A006512).  Paul Muljadi, Jun 05 2008
Also primes p such that the arithmetic mean of divisors of p^2 is an integer: sigma_1(p^2)/sigma_0(p^2) = C. (A000203(p^2)/A000005(p^2) = C).  Ctibor O. Zizka, Sep 15 2008
Fermat knew that these numbers can also be expressed as x^2 + 3y^2 and are therefore not prime in Z[omega], where omega is a complex cubic root of unity.  Alonso del Arte, Dec 07 2012
Is this the same sequence as A139492? No, because 13 is in this sequence but not in A139492. Is A139492 a subsequence of A002476?  Jon Perry, Nov 25 2013
Conjecture: The only primes p such that p^(2n+1)  2^(2m) is not a prime for any n, m >0. However, it appears p^(2n)  2^(2m+1) yields primes for all p at multiple n, m combinations. Also see A003627.  Richard R. Forberg, Jun 16 2015

FORMULA

Sum_{n >= 1} 1/a(n)^2 = A175644. Sum_{n >= 1} 1/a(n)^3 = A175645.  R. J. Mathar, Apr 03 2011


EXAMPLE

Since 6 * 1 + 1 = 7 and 7 is prime, 7 is in the sequence. (Also 7 = 2^2 + 3 * 1^2 = (2 + sqrt(3))(2  sqrt(3))).
Since 6 * 2 + 1 = 13 and 13 is prime, 13 is in the sequence.
17 is prime but it is of the form 6m  1 rather than 6m + 1, and is therefore not in the sequence.
