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”).

The sequence contains all the primes of the form 4m+1 (A002144).

The sequence also contains some primes of the form 4m+3 (see them in A172490).
