COMMENTS

When n+1 and n^2+1 are both prime, then k=1.

FORMULA

a(n) = minimal value of k > 0 such that n^3 + k^2 is semiprime.


EXAMPLE

a(0) = 2 because 0^3 + 1^2 = 1 is not semiprime, but 0^3 + 2^2 = 4 = 2^2 is.
a(1) = 3 because 1^3 + 1^2 and 1^3 + 2^2 are not semiprime, but 1^3 + 3^2 = 10 = 2 * 5 is semiprime.
a(59) = 40 because 59^3 + 40^2 = 206979 = 3 * 68993 and for no smaller k > 0 is 59^3 + k^2 a semiprime.
a(100) = 1 because 100^3 + 1^2 = 1000001 = 101 * 9901.
