COMMENTS

Sierpiński proved that under Schinzel's hypothesis H this sequence is infinite. He gives the 24 terms below 10^3.

Sierpiński noted that the only triple of consecutive primes of the form (2n)^2 + 1 are for n = 1 (i.e., 1 and 2 are the only consecutive terms in this sequence), since every triple of consecutive terms contains at least one term which is divisible by 5.

Subsequence of A001912.

EXAMPLE

1 is in the sequence since (2*1)^2 + 1 = 5 and (2*1+2)^2 + 1 = 17 are both primes.
