%N Primes of the form 3x^2 - y^2, where x and y are two consecutive numbers.

%C Equivalently primes of the form 2n^2 - 2n - 1. a(n)==3 (mod 4).

%C Equivalently primes p such that 2p+3 is square.

%C Also 3 followed by primes p of the form 2*n^2+6*n+3 = 2*(n+2)^2-2*(n+2)-1 (see the first comment) such that 2^(p-1)+3 is not prime. - _Vincenzo Librandi_, Jan 03 2009; M. F. Hasler, Jan 07 2009; _R. J. Mathar_, Jan 14 2009; _Bruno Berselli_, Sep 23 2013
