COMMENTS

The first 29 terms of 2*n^2 + 29 (n = 0 to 28) are primes. This was discovered by Adrien-Marie Legendre. The sequence and its first 8 terms appear in the novel Code to Zero by Ken Follett. - Amiram Eldar, Apr 08 2017

Let P(n) = 2*n^2 + 29. The polynomial P(2*n - 28) = 8*n^2 - 224*n + 1597 produces prime values (not distinct) for n = 0 to 28. The polynomial P(3*n - 55) = 18*n^2 - 660*n + 6079 produces distinct prime values for n = 0 to 27. Cf. A050265. - Peter Bala, Apr 16 2018
