COMMENTS

Negative of fundamental discriminants D := b^2-4*a*c<0 of definite integer binary quadratic forms F=a*x^2+b*x*y+c*y^2. See Buell reference pp. 223-234. 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
