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

Conjectured to be infinite.

We still do not know if there are an infinite number of primes of the form n^2 + 1, which is Landau's 4th Problem, declared "unattackable" in 1912. See Hardy and Wright; Ribenboim. - Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 28 2005
