A091592 Numbers n such that there are no twin primes between n^2 and (n+1)^2. 7
1, 9, 19, 26, 27, 30, 34, 39, 49, 53, 77, 122 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



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 (2x-1)^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

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