You are not the first mathematician,
i discovered it also, a little bit earlier than you, may be 10 years ago:
see http://devalco.de/quadr_Sieb_x%5E2+1.php#1 ,
and i do not claim to be the first.

But it is indeed a good basic idea for prime generators,
if you add the proof :
f(x - k*f(x)) = = 0 mod(f(x)) (or k element Z)
you have a good criteria for prime generators.

Have a look at http://devalco.de/#106
and you will discover a little bit more of prime numbers
or prime generators in quadratic progression.
