%N Sum of primitive roots of n-th prime.

%C It is a result that goes back to Mirsky that the set of primes p for which p-1 is squarefree has density A, where A denotes the Artin constant (A = prod_q (1-1/(q(q-1)), q running over all primes). Numerically A = 0.3739558136.. = A005596. More precisely, Sum_{p <= x} mu(p-1)^2 = Ax/log x + o(x/log x) as x tends to infinity. Conjecture: sum_{p <= x, mu(p-1)=1} 1 = (A/2)x/log x + o(x/log x) and sum_{p <= x, mu(p-1)=-1} 1 = (A/2)x/log x + o(x/log x). - Pieter Moree (moree(AT)mpim-bonn.mpg.de), Nov 03 2003

%C The number of the primitive roots is A008330(n). - _R. K. Guy_, Feb 25 2011

%C If prime(n) == 1 (mod 4), then a(n) = prime(n)*A008330(n)/2. There are also primes of the form prime(n) == 3 (mod 4) where prime(n) | a(n), namely prime(n) = 19, 127, 151, 163, 199, 251,... The list of primes in both modulo-4 classes where prime(n)|a(n) is 5, 13, 17, 19, 29, 37, 41, 53, 61,... - _R. K. Guy_, Feb 25 2011

%C a(n) = A076410(n) at n = 1, 3, 7, 55,... (for p = 2, 5, 17, 257... and perhaps only for the Fermat primes). - _R. K. Guy_, Feb 25 2011

%e For 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, the primitive roots are as follows: {{1}, {2}, {2, 3}, {3, 5}, {2, 6, 7, 8}, {2, 6, 7, 11}, {3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14}, {2, 3, 10, 13, 14, 15}, {5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21}, {2, 3, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 18, 19, 21, 26, 27}}
