COMMENTS

p = 5 is the only term for which both p^2 - 6 and p^2 + 6 are primes.

EXAMPLE

5^2 - 6 = 19 is prime (just as is 5^2+6 = 31), hence 5 is in the sequence.

79^2 + 6 = 6241 + 6 = 6247 is prime, hence 79 is in the sequence.

83^2 - 6 = 6889 - 6 = 6883 is prime, hence 83 is in the sequence.

MAPLE

a:=proc(n) if isprime(ithprime(n)^2+6)=true or isprime(ithprime(n)^2-6)=true then ithprime(n) else fi end: seq(a(n), n=1..200); # Emeric Deutsch, May 05 2007
