A082612 Numbers n such that ((n-1)^2+1)/2 and n^2+1 and ((n+1)^2+1)/2 are prime if n is even or (n-1)^2+1 and (n^2+1)/2 and (n+1)^2+1 are prime if n is odd. 5

%N Numbers n such that ((n-1)^2+1)/2 and n^2+1 and ((n+1)^2+1)/2 are prime if n is even or (n-1)^2+1 and (n^2+1)/2 and (n+1)^2+1 are prime if n is odd.

%C I believe this is an infinite sequence, though a proof seems to be still far off. 155th term is 62910. There are probably infinitely many consecutive n^2+1 or (n^2+1)/2 primes. That is, n^2+1 and (n+2)^2+1 or (n^2+1)/2 and ((n+2)^2+1)/2 are both prime infinitely often.

%e a(4)=10 (9^2+1)/2=41 and 10^2+1=101 and (11^2+1)/2=61 are prime.
