COMMENTS

By Zsigmondy's theorem, the n-th Zsigmondy number for bases a and b is not 1 except in the three cases (1) a = 2, b = 1, n = 1, (2) a = 2, b = 1, n = 6, (3) n = 2 and a+b is a power of 2.

FORMULA

For even n, a(n) = A064078(2*n); for odd n, a(n) = A064078(n) * A064078(2*n). - Max Alekseyev, Apr 28 2022
