COMMENTS

Previous name: Indices of semiprime Stella Octangula numbers A007588.
Because of the polynomial factorization, the Stella Octangula numbers 2*k^2  1 can never be prime. They are semiprime when k is prime and 2*k^2  1 is also prime. That is, the kth Stella Octangula number is semiprime for k = 2, 3, 7, 11, 13, 17, 41, 43, 59, 73, 109, 113, 127, 137, 157, 179, 181, 197, 199, ....

FORMULA

a(n) is in this sequence iff A007588(a(n))) is an element of A001358. a(n) is in this sequence iff A106482(a(n)) = 2. a(n) is in this sequence iff a(n) is prime and 2*a(n)^21 is also prime.


EXAMPLE

73 is in this sequence because the 73rd Stella Octangula number = 73*(2*73^2  1) = 777961 = 73 * 10657, which is semiprime.
