Sequence of the Day

Sequence of the Day for July 2

A024702:
a (n) =
(  pn ) 2  −  1
24
, where
pn , n   ≥   3,
is a prime congruent to
 − 1
or
 + 1 (mod 6)
.
{ 1, 2, 5, 7, 12, 15, 22, 35, 40, 57, 70, ... }
For all numbers
p
and
q
congruent to
 − 1
or
 + 1 (mod 6)
, we have
p 2  −  q 2
is divisible by 24, so this applies for the unit 1 or any primes
p
and
q
other than 2 or 3. Iterate
p
through all primes other than 2 and 3 and let
q
be 1. This is a subsequence of the generalized pentagonal numbers (see A001318).


Sequences in the News

  • Dec 25 2018 German Heise-News "integers, please" column explains A003173 and OEIS.
  • Feb 01 2018 Alphabet announced a $8,589,869,056 = $A000396(6) stock buyback.
  • Jan 03 2018 Largest known term of A000043 announced: 77232917.
  • Nov 18 2016 PrimeGrid proves that 10223 is not a Sierpinski number, since 10223 × 2 31172165 + 1 is prime. So no changes to A076336 for now.
  • Sep 14 2016 Tom Greer discovers the twin primes 2996863034895 × 2 1290000 ± 1 using PrimeGrid, TwinGen and LLR.

Complaints

I strive to live up to the highest ethical standards. If you feel that I have wrongly rejected one of your sequences (or otherwise failed to meet the expected standards), please leave a note at Complaints About Editing where it will be reviewed. I hope that in all cases you will first contact me (through the pink comment boxes, on my user page, or by email).
