COMMENTS

Many numbers can be ruled out from membership in this sequence with the case c = 1, which then corresponds to p + b^2 (see A064233).

If a positive integer is of the form p * c^2 + b^2, then it may potentially have two different factorizations in Z[sqrt(-p)] (assuming that is not a unique factorization domain, of course): the familiar factorization in Z, and (c + b sqrt(-p))(c - b sqrt(-p)).

There are no more terms <= 2*10^9. - Donovan Johnson, May 30 2012

EXAMPLE

Since 24 can be expressed as 5 * 2^2 + 2^2, it is not in the sequence.

No such expression exists for 25, hence it is in the sequence.

Since 26 can be expressed as 17 * 1^2 + 3^2, it is not in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

max = 10^5; Complement[Range[max], Flatten[Table[Prime[p]a^2 + b^2, {p, PrimePi[max]}, {a, Ceiling[Sqrt[max/2]]}, {b, Ceiling[Sqrt[max]]}]]]
