A171994 ("Twin natural nonprimes are products of free primes."):
I can see that the members all have three prime factors, but I don't
know what makes them twin natural nonprimes. The definitions
elsewhere suggest that this means numbers n with n+2 nonprime, but
then why are 8 and 63 not in the sequence? (And others beside: I
don't think it's a case of an omission but my misunderstanding,) And
the numbers don't have n+2 with 3 prime factors either, so that theory
also fails. [I sent a similar message to the sequence author with no
response.]
A144565 ("a(n)=p-th digit of 2^(1/2) where p = n-th prime."):
By the description, this is a duplicate of A090204. But the values
don't match at all. What is this?
