COMMENTS

Let p and q be distinct odd primes, and take a and b so that a*p - b*q = 1.  Dickson's conjecture implies there are infinitely many k such that 2*a+k*q and 2*b+k*p are prime, in which case n = a*p + (k*q*p-1)/2 is in the sequence with 2*n-1 = (2*b+k*p)*q and 2*n+1 = (2*a+k*q)*p. - Robert Israel, Aug 13 2018

EXAMPLE

a(1)=17 because 2*17-1=33=3*11 and 2*17+1=35=5*7 are both semiprimes.

MAPLE

OSP:= select(numtheory:-bigomega=2, {seq(i, i=3..1000, 2)}):

R:= map(t -> (t+1)/2, OSP intersect map(`-`, OSP, 2)):

sort(convert(R, list)); # Robert Israel, Aug 13 2018

PROG

(PARI) isok(n) = (bigomega(2*n-1) == 2) && (bigomega(2*n+1) == 2); \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 16 2017
