COMMENTS

Theorem: If q>3 and both numbers q and (2q-1) are primes then n=q*(2q-1) is a pseudoprime to base 3 (i.e. n is in the sequence). So for n>2, A005382(n)*(2*A005382(n)-1) is in the sequence (see Comments lines for the sequence A122780). 91,703,1891,2701,12403,18721,38503,49141... are such terms. This sequence is a subsequence of A122780. - Farideh Firoozbakht, Sep 13 2006

Composite numbers n such that 3^(n-1) == 1 (mod n).
