COMMENTS

Analogous to A001359 for odd composite numbers (A071904).
Consists of numbers that cannot be the difference of two primes: an odd number m can be the difference of two primes only if m+2 is prime, which cannot be the case for any a(n) as a(n)+2 is composite.
Some terms form subsequences of perfect powers, e.g., A106564 (for squares) and A269346 (for cubes).
Any composite of the form 6k+1 (A016921) is a term: (6k+1)+2 = 3(2k+1) is both odd and composite as a product of two odd numbers, thus 6k+1, being odd, is a term if it is composite.

FORMULA

a(n) = A061673(n)  1.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 18 2018


EXAMPLE

25 belongs to this sequence because 27=25+2 is the next odd composite.
