These primes are the prime RMS numbers (A140480): primes p such that (1+p^2)/2 is a square r^2. Then r is a Pell number, A000129. - T. D. Noe, Jul 01 2008

Also prime numerators with an odd index in A001333. - Ctibor O. Zizka, Aug 13 2008

r in the above note of T. D. Noe is a prime Pell number (A000129) with an odd index. - Ctibor O. Zizka, Aug 13 2008

General recurrence is a(n)=(a(1)-1)*a(n-1)-a(n-2), a(1)>=4, lim n->infinity a(n)= x*(k*x+1)^n, k =(a(1)-3), x=(1+sqrt((a(1)+1)/(a(1)-3)))/2. Examples in OEIS: a(1)=4 gives A002878, primes in it A121534. a(1)=5 gives A001834, primes in it A086386. a(1)=6 gives A030221, primes in it not in OEIS {29,139,3191,...}. a(1)=7 gives A002315, primes in it A088165. a(1)=8 gives A033890, primes in it not in OEIS (does there exist any ?). a(1)=9 gives A057080, primes in it not in OEIS {71,34649,16908641,...}. a(1)=10 gives A057081, primes in it not in OEIS {389806471,192097408520951,...}. - Ctibor O. Zizka, Sep 02 2008

More terms from Ray Chandler, Sep 21 2003. Next term a(9) is too large (99 digits) to include in sequence.
