(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A121371 Least number k such that (k*M(n))^2 + k*M(n) - 1 and (k*M(n))^2 + k*M(n) + 1 are twin primes with M(i)=i-th Mersenne prime. 1

EXAMPLE

M(2)=2^3-1=7

7^2+7-1=55 composite

(2*7)^2+2*7-1=209 composite

(3*7)^2+3*7-1=461 prime, 461 and 463 are twin primes so k(2)=3
