Numbers n such that A001348(n) is a Mersenne prime A000668.  Omar E. Pol, Jul 14 2012
Numbers n such that A060286(n) is a perfect number A000396. Assuming there are no odd perfect numbers, A060286(a(n)) = A000396(n).  Omar E. Pol, Dec 13 2012

FORMULA

Pi(A000043).


EXAMPLE

The first four Mersenne numbers 2^2  1 = 3, 2^3  1 = 7, 2^5  1 = 31 and 2^7  1 = 127 are prime, so 1, 2, 3, 4 are members. But the fifth Mersenne number 2^11  1 = 2047 = 23*89 is composite, so 5 is not a member.
