COMMENTS

For r a primitive root of a prime p, r + qp is a primitive root of p: but r + qp is also a primitive root of p^2, except for q in some unique residue class modulo p. In the exceptional case, r + qp has order p1 modulo p^2 (Burton, section 8.3).
No other terms below 10^12 (Paszkiewicz, 2009).

FORMULA

Prime A000040(n) is in this sequence iff A001918(n)^(A000040(n)1) == 1 (mod A000040(n)^2).
Prime A000040(n) is in this sequence iff A001918(n) differs from A127807(n).
