COMMENTS

Write the natural numbers in groups: 1; 2,3,4; 5,6,7,8,9; 10,11,12,13,14,15,16; ..... and add the groups, i.e., a(n)=sum(i,i=n^22(n1)..n^2).  Klaus Strassburger (strass(AT)ddfi.uniduesseldorf.de), Sep 05 2001
The numbers 1, 9, 35, 91, etc. are divisible by 1, 3, 5, 7, etc. Therefore there are no prime numbers in this list. 9 is divisible by 3 and every third number after 9 is also divisible by 3. 35 is divisible by 5 and 7 and every fifth number after 35 is also divisible by 5 and every seventh number after 35 is also divisible by 7. This pattern continues indefinitely.  Howard Berman (howard_berman(AT)hotmail.com), Nov 07 2008
n^3 + (n+1)^3 = (2n+1)*(n^2+n+1), hence all terms are composite.  Zak Seidov, Feb 08 2011
This is the order of an nball centered at a node in the Kronecker product (or direct product) of three cycles, each of whose lengths is at least 2n+2.  Pranava K. Jha, Oct 10 2011
