COMMENTS

Negative of fundamental discriminants D := b^24*a*c<0 of definite integer binary quadratic forms F=a*x^2+b*x*y+c*y^2. See Buell reference pp. 223234. See 4*A089269 for even a(n) and A039957 for odd a(n).  Wolfdieter Lang, Nov 07 2003
All prime numbers in the set of the absolute values of negative fundamental discriminants are Gaussian primes (A002145).  Paul Muljadi, Mar 29 2008
