COMMENTS

The polynomial successively generates 35 primes/negative values of primes starting at n=0.

This polynomial generates 95 primes in absolute value (60 distinct ones) for n from 0 to 99, equaling the record held by Euler's polynomial for n = m-35, which is m^2 - 69*m + 1231 (see the reference).

The nonprime terms (in absolute value) up to n=99 are: 1591 = 37*43, 3737 = 37*101, 4033 = 37*109; 5633 = 43*131; 5977 = 43*139; 9017 = 71*127.

The polynomial 4*n^2 + 12*n - 1583 generates the same 35 primes in row starting from n=0 in reverse order.

Note: in the same family of prime-generating polynomials (with the discriminant equal to 199*2^p, where p is odd) there are the polynomial 32*n^2 - 944*n + 6763 (with its "reversed polynomial" 32*m^2 - 976*m + 7243, for m=30-n), generating 31 primes in row, and the polynomial 4*n^2 - 428*n +5081 (with 4*m^2 + 188*m - 4159, for m=30-n), generating 31 primes in row.
