COMMENTS

The sequence reveals itself to a degree upon factorization: (-1, -1, -(2), -1, -(2), 1, (2), (11), (2)*(11), (53), (2)*(53), (223), (2)*(223), (5)*(181), (2)*(5)*(181), (5)*(727), (2)*(5)*(727), (14557), (2)*(14557), (7)*(53)*(157), (2)*(7)*(53)*(157), (7)*(33287), (2)*(7)*(33287), (17)*(109)*(503), (2)*(17)*(109)*(503), (1429)*(2609), (2)*(1429)*(2609), (97)*(153743), (2)*(97)*(153743), (7)*(8521759),) with a(n+1)/a(n) apparently approaching 2 and a(2n)/a(2n-1) = 2 for all n > 0.
