COMMENTS

Let p = prime number, n = (p^27)/2 (mod p).
Comment: All numbers of the form 1+3k (k=0,1,2,...) are in this sequence, since 2(3k+1)+7 = 6k+9 is divisible by 3. Moreover, each of these numbers can be extended to an equidistant sequence of length k+1 and step 2k+3: This leads to the triangle T[k,m] = (3k+1)+(2k+3)*m, m=0,...,k, of elements of this sequence, because T[k,m]*2+7 = (2k+3)(2m+3) is never prime. The lines of the triangle end with m=k since the next term T[k,k+1] would be the same as the term in the following line, T[k+1,k]. (The formula T[k,m]=((2k+3)(2m+3)7)/2 might also explain the comment involving "n=(p^27)/2".) [M. F. Hasler, Jun 16 2010]
Solutions of the inequality (2*n+7)'>1, where n' is the arithmetic derivative of n. [Paolo P. Lava, Nov 27 2012]
