COMMENTS

For a given term n of this sequence, n1 and n+1 are both squarefree kalmost primes for the same k. The sequence is thus the union of the averages (arithmetic means) of twin prime pairs (A014574), the averages of twin squarefree semiprime pairs, the averages of twin squarefree 3almost prime pairs, ... (where "twin ... pairs" means the members of each pair differ by two). A subsequence of A280382 and of A280383.

EXAMPLE

The number 34 is a term because 33 = 3*11 and 35 = 5*7, a twin semiprime pair. Unlike A280382 and A280383, 19 is not a term here because 18 = 2*3^2 and 20 = 2^2*5, neither of which is squarefree.
