COMMENTS

The condition that neither 2p - 1 nor 2p + 1 be prime is equivalent to ((p-1) mod 3 = 0) or ((p+1) mod 3 = 0). For example, the prime p = 2^607 - 1 is not in this sequence because p + 1 mod 3 = 2. - Washington Bomfim, Oct 30 2009

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 17 is here because 17 * 2 + 1 = 35, 17 * 2 - 1 = 33; (17+1)/2 = 9, (17-1)/2 = 8: four composite numbers.
