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

COMMENTS

Also, primes that do not divide any Lucas number. - T. D. Noe, Jul 25 2003

Although every prime divides some Fibonacci number, this is not true for the Lucas numbers. In fact, exactly 1/3 of all primes do not divide any Lucas number. See Lagarias and Moree for more details. The Lucas numbers separate the primes into three disjoint sets: (A053028) primes that do not divide any Lucas number, (A053027) primes that divide Lucas numbers of even index and (A053032) primes that divide Lucas numbers of odd index. - T. D. Noe, Jul 25 2003; revised N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 21, 2004
