COMMENTS

When p and p^2 - 2 are both prime, the fundamental solution of the Pell equation x^2 - n*y^2 = 1, for n = p^2 - 2, is x = p^2 - 1 and y = p. See A109748 for the case of n and x both prime. - T. D. Noe, May 19 2007

Solutions of the equation n' + (n^2-2)' = 2, where n' is the arithmetic derivative of n. - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 09 2012

3 is the only prime p such that p^2 + 2 and p^2 - 2 are both primes. - Jaroslav Krizek, Nov 25 2013 (note that p^2 + 2 is composite for all primes p >= 5. - Joerg Arndt, Jan 10 2015)

For all primes p except for p = 3, p^2 + 2 is multiple of 3 (see A061725). - Zak Seidov, Feb 19 2015
