FORMULA

Let a(p,q)=sum(n=1,2*p*q,2*cos(2^n*Pi/((2*q+1)*(2*p+1)))). Then 2*p+1 is a prime belonging to this sequence when a(p,1)==1. - Gerry Martens, May 21 2015

MAPLE

with(numtheory); f:=proc(n) local t1, i, p; t1:=[]; for i from 1 to 500 do p:=ithprime(i); if order(n, p) = p-1 then t1:=[op(t1), p]; fi; od; t1; end; f(-2);
