COMMENTS

No a(n) can be even, since a(n)+2 must be prime. If a(n) is a prime, then it is a Sophie Germain twin prime (A045536). The only square is 9. Let the degree of n be the sum of the exponents in its prime factorization. By convention, degree(1)=0. Then every a(n) has degree less than or equal to 3. Let the weight of n be the number of its distinct prime factors. By convention, weight(1)=0. Clearly, w<=d is always true, with d=w only when the number is squarefree. Let [w,d] be the set of all integers with weight w and degree d. Then only the following possibilities occur: 1. [0,0] => a(1)=1. 2. [1,1] => Sophie Germain twin prime: 3, 5, 11, 29, A005384, A045536. 3. [1,2] => a(4)=9 is the only occurrence. 4. [1,3] => 5^3, 71^3 and 303839^3 are the first few cubes, A000578, A120808. 5. [2,2] => 5*7, 3*13 and 5*13 are the first few semiprimes, A001358, A120807. 6. [2,3] => 11*13^2, 61^2*89 and 13^2*12671 are the first few examples, A014612, A054753, A120809. 7. [3,3] => 5*11*17, 5*53*1151, 5*11*42533 are the first few 3almost primes, A007304, A120810.

FORMULA

a(n) = nth number such that n+d+1 is prime for all divisors d of n.


EXAMPLE

a(11)=125 since divisors(125)={1,5,25,125} and the set of all n+d+1 is {127,131,151,251} and these are all prime.


MAPLE
