 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The divisors of 24 greater than 1 are the only positive integers n with the property m^2 == 1 (mod n) for all integer m coprime to n. - Antonio G. Astudillo (afg_astudillo(AT)hotmail.com), Jun 10 2001 Numbers n for which all Dirichlet characters are real. - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 21 2002 These are the numbers n that are divisible by all numbers less than or equal to the square root of n. - Tanya Khovanova, Dec 10 2006 [For a proof, see the Tauvel paper in references. - Bernard Schott, Dec 20 2012] Also, numbers n such that A160812(n) = 0. - Omar E. Pol, Jun 19 2009 It appears that these are the only positive integers n such that A160812(n) = 0. - Omar E. Pol, Nov 17 2009 24 is a highly composite number: A002182(6)=24. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 21 2010 Chebolu points out that these are exactly the numbers for which the multiplication table of the integers mod n have 1s only on their diagonal, i.e., ab = 1 (mod n) implies a = b (mod n). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 06 2011 It appears that 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 (the divisors >= 3 of 24) are also the only numbers n whose proper non-divisors k are prime numbers if k = d-1 and d divides n. - Omar E. Pol, Sep 23 2011 About the last Pol's comment: I have searched to 10^7 and have found no other terms. - Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 23 2011 Sum_{i=1..8} A000005(a(i))^3 = (Sum_{i=1..8} A000005(a(i)))^2, see Kordemsky in References and Barbeau et al. in Links section.

From the tenth comment: 1^3 + 2^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 + 4^3 + 4^3 + 6^3 + 8^3 = (1+2+2+3+4+4+6+8)^2 = 900.
