Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Let p = prime number, n = (p^2-7)/2 (mod p).

Comment: All numbers of the form 1+3k (k=0,1,2,...) are in this sequence, since 2(3k+1)+7 = 6k+9 is divisible by 3. Moreover, each of these numbers can be extended to an equidistant sequence of length k+1 and step 2k+3: This leads to the triangle T[k,m] = (3k+1)+(2k+3)*m, m=0,...,k, of elements of this sequence, because T[k,m]*2+7 = (2k+3)(2m+3) is never prime. The lines of the triangle end with m=k since the next term T[k,k+1] would be the same as the term in the following line, T[k+1,k]. (The formula T[k,m]=((2k+3)(2m+3)-7)/2 might also explain the comment involving "n=(p^2-7)/2".) [M. F. Hasler, Jun 16 2010]

Solutions of the inequality (2*n+7)'>1, where n' is the arithmetic derivative of n. [Paolo P. Lava, Nov 27 2012]
