A079152 Primes p such that either p-1 or p+1 has at most 3 prime factors, counted with multiplicity; i.e., primes p such that either bigomega(p-1) <= 3 or bigomega(p+1) <= 3, where bigomega(n) = A001222(n). 5

COMMENTS

Up to 83, this is the sequence of prime numbers A000040. 89 is not in the sequence because both 89-1 = 88 = 2*2*2*11 and 89+1 = 90 = 2*3*3*5 have 4 prime factors.

EXAMPLE

97 is in the sequence because 97+1 = 98 = 2*7*7 has 3 prime factors.
