Corneth, Upper bounds on a(n) for n = 1..37 where values with * are proven values EXAMPLE a(1) = 4 since 4 - 1 and 4 + 1 are both primes. a(2) = 34 since 34 - 1 = 33 = 3*11 and 34 + 1 = 35 = 5*7 are both semiprimes. a(3) = 274 since 274 - 1 = 273 = 3*7*13 and 274 + 1 = 275 = 5^2 * 11 are both 3-almost primes.
