MATHEMATICA Select[Table[4 n^2 + 1, {n, 0, 99}], Length[Divisors[ # ]] < 3 &] CROSSREFS Essentially the same sequence as A002496, A121326, A163588. Cf. A053755, all numbers of the form 4n^2 + 1. Noncomposites of the eastern ray are in A168022. Primes of the northeastern ray are in A073337. Noncomposites of the northern ray are in A168023. Primes of the northwestern ray are in A121326 (the same as this sequence but without the initial 1). Noncomposites of the western ray are in A168025. Noncomposites of the southwestern ray are in A168026. Noncomposites of the southern ray are in A168027.
