COMMENTS

Inspired by A266954.

A266954 is a subsequence.

A067756 lists primes of the form p = a^2 + b^2 where |a^2 - b^2| is prime. So union of 2, A067756 and this sequence gives A002313. 2 is an exception because 1^2 - 1^2 = 0 is not prime or composite.

EXAMPLE

17 is a term because 4^2 + 1^2 = 17 is prime and 4^2 - 1^2 = 15 is composite.

29 is a term because 5^2 + 2^2 = 29 is prime and 5^2 - 2^2 = 21 is composite.

37 is a term because 6^2 + 1^2 = 37 is prime and 6^2 - 1^2 = 35 is composite.
