%N Numbers n such that 3*n+1 is prime.

%C All the primes (with the exception of 3), can be expressed as 3*n+1 or 3*n-1. - _C├ęsar Aguilera_, Apr 13 2013

%C The associated prime A002476(n) has a unique representation as x^2 + x*y - 2*y^2 = (x + 2*y)*(x-y) with positive integers, namely (x(n), y(n)) = (a(n) + 1, a(n)). See the N. J. A. Sloane, May 31 2014, comment on A002476. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Feb 09 2016

%F a(n) = (A002476(n) - 1)/3. See the name.

%F a(n) = 2*A024899(n) = A034936(n)+1
