A099381 Numbers n such that |Fibonacci(n) - prime(n)| is prime. 2

COMMENTS

Fibonacci(n) - prime(n) > 0 for n >= 8. All terms other than 2 and 8 (only two terms producing 2, the only even prime) are divisible by 3 (as Fibonacci(n) is even - and hence |Fibonacci(n) - prime(n)| > 1 and odd - iff n is divisible by 3).

Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.

EXAMPLE

9 is a term as Fibonacci(9) - prime(9) = 34 - 23 = 11, a prime.

MATHEMATICA

fQ[n_] := PrimeQ[ Fibonacci[n] - Prime[n]]; Do[ If[ fQ[n], Print[n]], {n, 9, 10^4, 3}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Nov 18 2004 *)

PROG

(PARI) print1(2, ", ", 3, ", ", 6, ", ", 8, ", "); forstep(n=9, 5169, 3, if(isprime(fibonacci(n)-prime(n)), print1(n, ", ")))
