COMMENTS

Also primes that are the sum of two primes. - Cino Hilliard, Jul 02 2004

The set of greater of twin primes larger than five is a proper subset of the set of primes of the form 3n + 1 (A002476). - Paul Muljadi, Jun 05 2008

Smallest prime>n-th isolated composite. - Juri-Stepan Gerasimov, Nov 07 2009

Subsequence of A175075. Union of a(n) and sequence A175080 is A175075. - Jaroslav Krizek, Jan 30 2010

A164292(a(n))=1; A010051(a(n)+2)=0 for n>1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 29 2010

Omega(n)=Omega(n-2); d(n)=d(n-2). - Juri-Stepan Gerasimov, Sep 19 2010

Solutions of the equation (n-2)'+n'=2, where n' is the arithmetic derivative of n. - Paolo P. Lava, Dec 18 2012

Aside from the first term, all subsequent terms have digital root 1, 4, or 7. - J. W. Helkenberg, Jul 24 2013
