Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The polynomial 2*n^2 + 11 first fails to produce a prime for n = 11, giving 253 = 11 * 23. - Alonso del Arte, Sep 04 2016

Let P(n) = 2*n^2 + 11. The polynomial P(2*n - 10) = 8*n^2 - 80*n + 11 produces prime values (not distinct) for n = 0 to 10. The polynomial P(3*n - 19) = 18*n^2 - 228*n + 733 produces distinct prime values for n = 0 to 9. - Peter Bala, Apr 16 2018
