 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Conjecture: a(n) exists for any n > 0. In general, if a,b,c and m are integers with a > 0, gcd(a,b,c-m) = 1 and c == (a+b+1)*(m+1) (mod 2) such that b^2-4a*(c-m) is not a square and gcd(a*m-b,b^2+b-a*c-1) is not divisible by 3, then for any positive integer n there are two elements x and y of the set {prime(k*n)+m: k = 1,2,3,...} with a*x^2+b*x+c = y. This implies the conjecture in A259731. REFERENCES Zhi-Wei Sun, Problems on combinatorial properties of primes, in: M. Kaneko, S. Kanemitsu and J.
