COMMENTS

Numbers n such that there is no pair of twin primes P, P+2 with n^2 < P < P+2 < n^2+2*n.
The first 7 terms of this sequence were given by Ernst Jung in a discussion in the Newsgroup de.sci.mathematik entitled "Primzahlen zwischen (2x1)^2 und (2x+1)^2" (primes between ...and...) with other significant contributions from Hermann Kremer and Rainer Rosenthal. It is conjectured that there are no further terms beyond a(11)=122. This has been tested to 50000 by Robert G. Wilson v.
Tested up to 10^7 and found no such numbers.  Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Jul 11 2011

EXAMPLE

a(1)=9 because no twin primes are found in the interval [9^2,10^2].
