COMMENTS

a(n) = A084740(n) for all n except n = p-1, where p is an odd prime, for which A084740(n) = 2.

All nonzero terms are odd primes.

a(n) = 0 for n = {4,9,16,25,32,36,49,64,81,100,121,125,144,...}, which are the perfect powers with exceptions of the form n^(p^m) where p>2 and (n^(p^(m+1))-1)/(n^(p^m)-1) are prime and m>=1 (in which case a(n^(p^m))=p). - Max Alekseyev, Jan 24 2009

a(n) = 3 for n in A002384, i.e., for n such that n^2 + n + 1 is prime.

a(152) > 20000. - Eric Chen, Jun 01 2015
