COMMENTS

Also primes of the form (n^2 + 7)/8. - Ray Chandler, Oct 08 2005

q=2 and q=5 are the only primes values such that q+1 is a triangular number because 8q+9 is a square for 2 and 5 only. - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 05 2002

n such that A000010(n) = A000217(k). - Giovanni Teofilatto, Jan 29 2010

It is conjectured that this sequence is infinite. - Daniel Forgues, Apr 21 2015
