Same as A001132 except for initial term.

Primes p such that x^2 = 2 has a solution mod p.

The prime values of the form x^2 + 2xy - y^2 coincide with this sequence. These are also primes of the form u^2 - 2v^2. - Tito Piezas III, Dec 28 2008

Therefore these are composite in Z[sqrt(2)], as they can be factored as (u^2 - 2v^2)(u^2 + 2v^2). - Alonso del Arte, Oct 03 2012

After a(1) = 2, these are the primes p such that p^4 == 1 (mod 96). - Gary Detlefs, Jan 22 2014

Also primes of the form 2v^2-u^2. Example 23=2X4^2-3^2. - Jerzy R Borysowicz, Oct 27 2015
