 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

%N Primes p such that mu(p-1) = 1; that is, p-1 is squarefree and has an even number of prime factors, where mu is the Moebius function.

%C It is an unsolved problem to determine if this sequence has a positive density in the primes. - Pieter Moree (moree(AT)mpim-bonn.mpg.de), Nov 03 2003

%C Except for the initial element 2, this sequence seems to be exactly those primes the sum of whose nonquadratic, nonprimitive-root residues is congruent to -1(mod p). - _Dimitri Papadopoulos_, Jan 10 2016
