Primes p such that 2^p-2 divides a(p) are A216838. - Amiram Eldar and Thomas Ordowski, Jan 16 2020

For odd n > 1, if a(n-1) divides a(n) and n does not divide a(n), then n is a prime (for which 2 is a primitive root, A001122). Composite numbers m such that a(m-1) divides a(m) are the pseudoprimes A001567 and A006935. Numbers n > 1 such that a(m) divides a(n) for all m < n are primes 2, 3, 5, 7, and 13. These are the primes p for which gpf(2^p-2) = p. - Thomas Ordowski, Jan 17 2020

If p is a prime with primitive root 2, A001122, then p | a(p-1) + 2^(p-2). Conjecture: (for n > 2), if n | a(n-1) + 2^(n-2), then n is a prime (A001122). Note that if p is an odd prime for which 2 is not a primitive root, A216838, then p | a(p-1). - Amiram Eldar and Thomas Ordowski, Jan 19 2020
