COMMENTS

Conjectures:
(1) 7 is a unique term which is not a Sophie Germain prime (A005384);
(2) A Sophie Germain prime p occurs p times if and only if p=2,3,5 and 11; otherwise, it occurs qp times, where q is the next Sophie Germain prime > p;
(3) a(n) is the greatest prime factor of p1 for primes p in the interval (n, 2*n).
All these conjectures follow from the following strengthening of the Bertrand postulate for n>=24: the interval (n, 2*n) contains a safe prime (A005385).
