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

Equivalently, numbers n such that either 6n-1 or 6n+1 is composite (or both are).

Numbers k such that 36*k^2 - 1 is not a product of twin primes. - Artur Jasinski, Dec 12 2007

Apart from initial zero, union of A046953 and A046954. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 13 2014

From Bob Selcoe, Nov 18 2014: (Start)

Complementary sequence to A002822.

For all k >= 1, a(n) are the only positive numbers congruent to the following residue classes:

f == k (mod 6k+-1);

g == (5k-1) (mod 6k-1);

h == (5k+1) (mod 6k+1).

All numbers in classes g and h will be in this sequence; for class f, the quotient must be >= 1.

When determining which numbers are contained in this sequence, it is only necessary to evaluate f, g and h when the moduli are prime and the dividends are >= 2*k*(3*k - 1) (i.e., A033579(k)).

From Jason Kimberley, Oct 14 2015: (Start)

Numbers n such that A001222(A136017(n)) > 2.

The disjoint union of A060461, A121763, and A121765.

(End)

From Ralf Steiner, Aug 08 2018 (Start)

Conjecture 1: With u(k) = floor(k(k + 1)/4) one has A071538(a(u(k))*6) = a(u(k)) - u(k) + 1, for  k >= 2 (u > 1).

Conjecture 2: In the interval [T(k-1)+1, T(k)], with T(k) = A000217(k), k >= 2, there exists at least one number that is not a member of the present sequence. (End)

Also: numbers of the form n*p +- round(p/6) with some positive integer n and prime p >= 5. [Proof available on demand.] - M. F. Hasler, Jun 25 2019

EXAMPLE

4 = 6ab - a - b with a = 1, b = 1.

6 = 6ab + a - b or 6ab - a + b with a = 1, b = 1.

5 cannot be obtained by any values of a and b in 6ab - a - b, 6ab - a + b, 6ab + a - b or 6ab + a + b.
