Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The first 29 terms of 2*n^2 + 29 (n = 0 to 28) are primes. This was discovered by Adrien-Marie Legendre. The sequence and its first 8 terms appear in the novel Code to Zero by Ken Follett. - Amiram Eldar, Apr 08 2017

Let P(n) = 2*n^2 + 29. The polynomial P(2*n - 28) = 8*n^2 - 224*n + 1597 produces prime values (not distinct) for n = 0 to 28. The polynomial P(3*n - 55) = 18*n^2 - 660*n + 6079 produces distinct prime values for n = 0 to 27. Cf. A050265. - Peter Bala, Apr 16 2018
