COMMENTS

Follows the integer values from 1 on the parabola: 7*n^2+2*n-15.

Real roots: (-1 +- sqrt(106))/7. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Mar 26 2014

The first in the family of parabolas of the form: prime(k+3)*n^2 + prime(k)*n - prime(k+1)*prime(k+2), where k >= 1 (k=1 gives a(n)). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Mar 26 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = n * A017005(n) - 15. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Mar 26 2014

G.f.: -x*(6 - 35*x + 15*x^2)/(1 - x)^3. - Bruno Berselli, Mar 27 2014

EXAMPLE

For n=3, a(3) = 7*3^2 + 2*3 - 15 = 54; for n=6, a(6) = 7*6^2 + 2*6 - 15 = 249.
