COMMENTS

641 is the first member not in sequences A001317, A004729, etc.
Conjectured (by Munafo, see link) to be the same as: numbers n such that 2^^n == 1 mod n, where 2^^n is A014221(n).
It is clear from the observations by Max Alekseyev in A023394 and the Chinese remainder theorem that any squarefree product b of divisors of Fermat numbers satisfies 2^(2^b) == 1 (mod b), hence satisfies Munafo's congruence above. The converse is true iff all Fermat numbers are squarefree. However, if nonsquarefree Fermat numbers exist, the criterion that is equivalent with Munafo's property would be "numbers b such that each prime power that divides b also divides some Fermat number".  Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Mar 05 2014
Also numbers b such that b is (squarefree and) a divisor of A051179(m) for some m. Or odd (squarefree) b where the multiplicative order of 2 mod b is a power of two.  Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Mar 07 2014

EXAMPLE

3 is a member because it is in A023394. 51 is a member because it is 3*17 and 17 is also in A023394. 153=3*3*17 is not a member because its factorization includes two 3's.
See the Munafo link for examples of the (conjectured) 2^^n == 1 mod n property.


PROG

(PARI) ( isOK1(n) = n%2==1 && hammingweight(znorder(Mod(2, n)))==1 ) ; ( isOK2(n) = issquarefree(n) && isOK1(n) ) \\ isOK1 and isOK2 differ only if n contains a prime square that divides a Fermat number (none are known), Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Apr 02 2014
