%N Smallest m in range 2..n-1 such that m^2 == 1 mod n, or 1 if no such number exists.

%C If n has a primitive root (i.e. if n is in A033948(n)) then a(n)=n-1, if not (i.e. if n is in A033949(n)), a(n)<n-1. E.g.: if n is of the form 4*A000961(m), then a(n)=n/2-1. Questions : for which n does the equation A070667(x)=x-n have at least one solution, does always A070667(x)=x-p have at least one solution when p is prime =>5? - _Benoit Cloitre_, May 12 2002
