COMMENTS

k times the n-th triangular number plus or minus 1 is prime.

Eventually every prime p appears since (p +/-1) times 1(1+1)/2 equals (p +/- 1).

The first occurrence of k: 1, 26, 5, 31, 320, 698, 79, 89, 1058, 7404, 223, 299, 8504, 13630, 845, 1217, 3334, 26074, 2349, 1835, 71926, 111616, 2473, 1189, 27754, 140366, 3709, 4109, 250126, 223078, 30359, 9649, ...,.
