COMMENTS

p divides a(p+1) for odd primes p.

p^2 divides a(p+1) for prime p = {3, 7, 71, ...}.

Determinant of n X n Vandermonde matrix of numbers 1,2,...,n equals Product_{k=1..n-1} k! = A000178(n-1) (Superfactorials).

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n, j=1..n} i^(j-1).

a(n) = n + Sum_{i=2..n} (i^n-1)/(i-1).

MATHEMATICA

Table[ n + Sum[ (i^n-1)/(i-1), {i, 2, n} ], {n, 1, 25} ]

CROSSREFS
