%N Numbers n such that 23*n^2 - 1 is prime.

%C Let's look at the sequence in base 12 with X for ten and E for eleven. Recall that in base 12 all primes greater than 3 end in either 1, 5, 7, or E. The sequence [n,(23*n^2-1) mod 12], 0<=n<=11, is [0, E], [1, 10], [2, 7], [3, 2], [4, 7], [5, 10], [6, E], [7, 10], [8, 7], [9, 2], [10, 7], [11, 10] so the only possibilities for primes are at the even integers with 7 and E primes, with 7 primes at 2, 4, 8, X mod 12 and E primes at 0, 6 mod 12. The sequence in base 12 is [4,267], [6,58E], [8,X27], [12,2737], [16,438E], [18,53X7], [1X,6537], [32,17277], [44,2EEX7], [50,3EXEE], [52,431E7], [54,46627], [70,79XEE], [76,8E98E], [78, 947X7], [7X,99737], [90,10E2EE]. - _Walter Kehowski_, Oct 05 2005
