COMMENTS

Complement of A075430 in A000040.

I propose a shorter name: non-Euclidean primes. That is justified by the Euclid's demonstration of the infinitude of primes. It appears that the proportion of non-Euclidean primes respect to primes tend to the limit 1-2A where A = .37395581... is Artin's constant. This table calculated by Jens K. Andersen corroborate it: 10^5: 2421 / 9592 = 0.2523978315 10^6: 19812 / 78498 = 0.2523885958 10^7: 167489 / 664579 = 0.2520227091 10^8: 1452678 / 5761455 = 0.2521373507 10^9: 12817966 / 50847534 = 0.2520862860 10^10: 114713084 / 455052511 = 0.2520875750 10^11: 1038117249 / 4118054813 = 0.2520892256 It comes close to the expected 1-2A. - Ludovicus (luiroto(AT)yahoo.com), Dec 07 2009

This sequence is infinite by Dirichlet's theorem, since there are infinitely many primes = 17 or 19 (mod 36) and these have no squarefree neighbors. Ludovicus' conjecture about density is correct. Capsule proof: either p-1 or p+1 is divisible by 4, so it suffices to consider the other number (WLOG p+1). For some fixed bound L, p is not divisible by any prime q < L (with finitely many exceptions) so there are q^2 - q possible residue classes for p. The primes in each are uniformly distributed so the probability that p+1 is divisible by q^2 is 1/(q^2 - q). The product of the complements goes to 2A as L increases without bound, and since 2A is an upper bound the limit is sandwiched between. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 27 2014
