COMMENTS

Sequence is obviously infinite.

If the sequence is restricted to only prime n's, the sequence increases absolutely. See comment in A083503.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

MATHEMATICA

Do[i = 2; While[k = (i^n - 1)/n - n; !IntegerQ[k], i++ ]; Print[k], {n, 1, 20}]

CROSSREFS

The i's in the above Mathematica coding, except for a(1), give A055670.

Cf. A083500, A083503.

Sequence in context: A132629 A174708 A144158 * A076378 A231502 A231864

Adjacent sequences:  A083499 A083500 A083501 * A083503 A083504 A083505
