COMMENTS

Squares in A269345; see also the Mathematica code.  Waldemar Puszkarz, Feb 27 2016
It is conjectured (see A020483) that every even number is a difference of primes, and this is known to be true for even numbers < 10^11. If so,this sequence consists of the odd squares n such that n+2 is composite.  Robert Israel, Feb 28 2016

FORMULA

n^2  A106546 with 0's removed.


EXAMPLE

a(2)=49 because it is the second perfect square which is impossible to obtain subtracting a prime from another one.
64 is not in the sequence because 64=673 (difference of two primes).
