COMMENTS

It is conjectured that this sequence is infinite.
Also primes p such that 8p + 8 is a square.  Cino Hilliard, Dec 18 2003
Also primes p such that 2p+2 is square; also primes p such that (p+1)/2 is square.  Ray Chandler, Sep 15 2005
Arithmetic numbers which are squares, A003601(p)=A000290(k), p prime, k integer. sigma_1(p)/sigma_0(p)=k^2; p prime, k integer.  Ctibor O. Zizka, Jul 14 2008
