Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A006559 Short period primes: the decimal expansion of 1/p has period less than p-1, but greater than zero.

COMMENTS

Primes 2 and 5 are excluded because 1/2 and 1/5 have no period. Also primes p whose multiplicative order mod p is less than p-1.
