 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Fewer than 1.2% of the first million primes have this property. For all primes p > 3, p^2 - 1 is divisible by 24 (since it is factorable as (p-1)*(p+1)), but p^2 + 1, although it is even, is divisible by neither 4 nor 3. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..38. EXAMPLE 2917 is a term: 2917^2 - 1 = 8508888 = 2^3 * 3^6 * 1459 has 56 divisors, but 2917^2 + 1 = 8508890 = 2 * 5 * 13 * 29 * 37 * 61 has 64. 399173 is a term: 399173^2 - 1 = 159339083928 = 2^3 * 3 * 66529 * 99793 has 32 divisors, but 399173^2 + 1 = 159339083930 = 2 * 5 * 13 * 17 * 29 * 53 * 61 * 769 has 256.
