Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

According to Karsten Meyer, 4 should be excluded, following the strict definition in Crandall and Pomerance. - May 16 2006

Theorem: If both numbers q and (2q - 1) are primes (q is in the sequence A005382) then n = q*(2q - 1) is a pseudoprime to base 5 (n is in the sequence) if and only if q is of the form 10k + 1. 1891, 88831, 146611, 218791, 721801, ... are such terms. This sequence is a subsequence of A122782. - Farideh Firoozbakht, Sep 14 2006

Composite numbers n such that 5^(n-1) == 1 (mod n).
