COMMENTS

Conjectured to be infinite.

We still do not know if there are an infinite number of primes of the form n^2 + 1, which is Landau's 4th Problem, declared "unattackable" in 1912. See Hardy and Wright; Ribenboim. - Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 28 2005

EXAMPLE

a(3)=11 because 10^2+1=101 and 5^2+6^2=(1/2)*(11^2+1)=61 are prime

MAPLE

a:=proc(n) if isprime(1+(n-1)^2)=true and type((n^2+1)/2, integer)=true and isprime((n^2+1)/2)=true then n else fi end: seq(a(n), n=1..3000); # Emeric Deutsch, May 31 2005
