A092120 a(n) is the first term p in a sequence of primes such that p+4m^2 is prime for m = 0 to n, but composite for m = n+1; a(n) = -1 if no such prime exists. 5

COMMENTS

Similar to A092474 except that a(n)+4m^2 is composite for m = n+1.

a(19)=163. All other terms after a(15) are greater than 10^17 (if they exist). [From Jens Kruse Andersen, Oct 24 2008]

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 277 because 277, 277 + 2^2 = 281, 277 + 4^2 = 293, and 277 + 6^2 = 313 are all prime, but 277 + 8^2 = 341 = 11*31 is composite, and there is no smaller prime with this property.

a(4) = 43: 43+4*1^2 = 47, which is prime. 43+4*2^2 = 59, which is prime. 43+4*3^2 = 79, which is prime. 43+4*4^2 = 107, which is prime. 43+4*5^2 = 143 = 11*13, which is composite.

CROSSREFS

Cf. A000040 (the prime numbers), A023200 (primes p such that p + 4 is also prime), A049492 (primes p such that p + 4 and p + 16 are also prime), A092475 (primes p such that p + 4, p + 16 and p + 36 are also prime).

Sequence in context: A321340 A221229 A221602 * A059706 A128361 A096481
